WTF is this nonsense? All the mean black lesbians are out to get Caitlyn Clark huh?

You guys sound as nutty as all the paternalistic talking heads on ESPN these days.

All? Who said or suggested all?

The fact that you believe any would target her because she’s a white, heterosexual is beyond strange.

Personally, I think players are sick of the attention and trying to give her a "rude awakening" to the life of professional hoops. I think it's silly, but I think other than the body check, most have just been hard fouls in the course of play.

It's funny that a lot of people longing for the real basketball of the 80s and 90s are getting upset at this. Isn't this basically what the Jordan Rules were?

Your first paragraph is 100% spot on. Dianna Taurasi even said that’s what she was going to be dealing with. Making it anything more than that is just so strange.

I haven't watched a lot of WNBA hoops but the level of play hasn't Impressed me.  Is it overly physical this year for some reason?

An observation from a white, heterosexual who has both played in and broadcasted WNBA games.

The fact that you don’t believe race and sexual preference can lead to mistreatment of those in the minority in both is naive.

People here are longing for NBA games that end up 83-79 and are closer to football than basketball? Who?

Mistreatment? Good Lord, it was a single cheap shot in the course of a basketball game, not a crime.
Your need to cry victim on behalf of the poor little white girl is bizarre.

Do these woman even know that they are chopping down the money tree?

Not to compare her to Tiger, but Clark is making a lot of money for those that are jealous of the attention she gets. Look at how ridiculously low WNBA salaries are. Now, someone comes along who will increase $$$ for everyone, and they’re unhappy with all the attention she is getting.

This is great for the league's bottom line.

  Smith said he believed there were WNBA players who were jealous of the attention Clark has received since entering the league and suggested race may play a part in it. "There are girls – young ladies – in the WNBA who are jealous of Caitlin Clark. She is a White girl that has come into the league," Smith said.11 hours ago"


  what?  what what??
  i swear you guys who hate fox, watch it more than we do, but thanks for keeping us up to date

He did not suggest it was because of her race.

People do realize that if Caitlin Clark was simply shooting 36% from the field and 30% from 3 while turning the ball over 5.4 times per game without people pretending to be outraged at the "treatment" of her the WNBA would be getting far less attention, right?  The only problem has been Reese ducking the post game presser after cheering on the physical play.

+1000. Enough people gave a $hit about them BC (before Clark) that even with subsidies they were making peanuts. Along comes somebody who will change that and what happens? Cheap shots celebrated, teammates allowing it. Dumb. Really dumb. But that’s what envy can do to people. Reminds me of a verse from a Bob Dylan song:
While one who sings with his tongue on fire
Gargles in the rat race choir
Bent out of shape from society’s pliers
Cares not to come up any higher
But rather get you down in the hole that he’s in

You’d be one of many here crying so you’ll have to let us know.

It was not one cheap shot dude. Not a pattern.

How paternalistic of you to want to protect the heterosexual white girl from the black lesbians.

But I think the last person on earth that wants you to paint her as some sort of victim is Caitlyn Clark.

Those hysterical women don’t know what’s best for them huh?

If only they’d listen to us middle aged white guys who have only watched the WNBA when we turned on the wrong channel by accident.

WNBA better get control of the caitlin Clark situation before it get's out of hand.  the league needs to nip this one NOW and send a message!  there is no excuse for the behavior and I haven't seen any footage of her being overly physical nor talking chit.  if she is, I don't blame her

I hope this isn't a thing about her being #1 draft pick and not being in the "sister" club and or other "behaviors"

  yes, 1 hard foul in 11 games, very good but it sure looked like they put a bounty on her arse.  to go over right in front of ref and hip check her...then the press conference was an embarrassment.  they did not represent their team nor WNBA well at all.  the "tough guy" look ain't a good one

point #2-don't these little hoodlum-esses understand that Caitlin is good for ALL of the WNBA?  she's bringing more people to the show and that is what they got-not very bright
