'Why not?': Liz Cambage jokes about 'crazy' OnlyFans windfall
Australian basketball superstar Liz Cambage has joked about the amount of money she would make on adult subscription site OnlyFans in a conversation on Instagram.
Cambage, star center for the WNBA's Las Vegas Aces, has previously modelled for Playboy and has been vocal about embracing body positivity.

While chatting with NBA trainer Chris Johnson on Instagram, the pair got chatting about the OnlyFans platform, which has notably seen the likes of Renee Gracie make substantial profit from subscriptions to homemade adult content.
The 29-year-old Cambage cracked that she'd make a 'crazy' amount of money on the platform, suggesting she might need to harbour greater ambitions than the infamous website.
“The amount of money I could be making off OnlyFans is crazy, what am I doing sitting here?" she said.
“It would need to be called something else though.
“If I was going to do something like that, like sell members only content, I’d build my own base. Why not?”
Cambage has already made strides in her modelling career, becoming an ambassador for pop star Rhianna's lingerie brand Savage x Fenty.
After her shoot with Playboy, Cambage spoke of how liberating it was to embrace her sexuality.
“I’ve never embraced my sexuality in public,” she said.
“Me doing Playboy is me celebrating my sexuality like, ‘Yeah, I am a straight six-foot-eight (203cm) woman who likes to have sex’. I’m a human; it’s what we do.
“As a female athlete, I feel like I’m not allowed to be sexy and I’m not allowed to be that person. All society wants from me is to sit down, shut up, go to training and play my sport.”
She added that the pressure to hide her body and sexuality had led her to question her own sexual identity
“I’ve spent a lot of years confused. Am I straight? Am I bi? Is there something wrong with me that I’m not attracted to girls?” Cambage said.
“Everyone’s always expecting me to be gay. I’m like, ‘No, I love men’.
“I remember when I shaved half my head at 18 or 19 and my mum sat me down. She thought that was me coming out. I was like, ‘No, I just look good with a shaved head’.”
Perfect Durant fuels Nets' NBA rout
Kevin Durant returned from a 23-game absence to spark Brooklyn as the Nets thrashed the New Orleans Pelicans 139-111 on Wednesday.
The Nets produced their most explosive half of the season with Durant finishing with 17 points on 5-for-5 shooting.
Durant came off the bench with about 7 1/2 minutes left in the second quarter and by the time the period ended, the Nets had 79 points and a 20-point half-time lead. Brooklyn were a sizzling 14 for 18 (78 per cent) in their 43-point quarter.
"I expected to come out here and play the way I played," Durant said. "I wasn't trying to ease into the game."
Durant added seven rebounds and five assists in 19 minutes in his return from a strained left hamstring. He was originally listed in the starting line-up, but was removed in a revised line-up distributed minutes before his first game since February 13.
Coach Steve Nash said bringing Durant off the bench was so the Nets could more easily control his minutes if the game was close down the stretch.
"We got dominated at both ends of the floor. Totally dominated," Pelicans coach Stan Van Gundy said. "We couldn't get out to the 3-point line. Our defence was absurd. They totally dominated us."
