Beefing: WNBA Edition 

Chasing clout and delivering a jab…

In WNBA news, the Chicago Sky’s Angel Reese recently decided to join the chorus of trash-talking yahoos and took a thinly veiled shot at Caitlin Clark in a tweet that she subsequently deleted.

TBT to 2023

The amount of today’s petulant athletes who have an insatiable appetite for adulation is staggering. Case in point, Angel Reese, the former LSU star and the 2024 seventh-overall pick of the Chicago Sky. You might recall Reese’s last college game in which her Tigers lost to Caitlin Clark’s Hawkeyes in the Elite Eight. Angel Reese’s stats revealed she had an outstanding game with 17 points, 20 boards, 4 assists, 3 blocked shots, and 2 assists.

But despite her superb performance, her team lost. And it was due primarily to Caitlin Clark’s stats in that game and her own stellar outing, dropping a game-high 41 points on the defending national champs in a 94-87 victory.

After that game, Clark celebrated her team’s triumph unlike the year before when Reese’s Tigers came out on top over Clark’s Hawkeyes, Reese mocked Clark with her trademark (well, actually WWE superstar John Cena’s trademark) “You can’t see me” hand gesture…but had they won you can bet your ass she would have gone back to that well.

 

The Hate Is Real

This is the backdrop for Reese’s latest juvenile antics after her team dropped the league’s only undefeated team, the New York Liberty, 90-81, at the Barclays Center on Thursday night. In that game, Reese was a solid contributor with 13 points, 9 rebounds, and an assist but was not the main attraction. There’s no shame in that as she put in her work and the Sky defeated one of the best teams in the league.

But that wasn’t good enough for Angel. Nope, it was time to get a dig in at the woman responsible for lifting the WNBA and all of women’s basketball to new heights, Caitlin Clark. You see Clark hasn’t defied the laws of gravity or scored triple digits in her first five WNBA games and the haters want you to know all about it. All she’s done is led her team in scoring in four of those five contests and is averaging 17.8 points per game, which happens to be 5 ½ more than her fellow rookie Angel Reese.

But Clark’s Indiana Fever have yet to taste victory and are mired in the cellar of the WNBA standings at 0-5 on the season. Reese wants everyone to know that her team is better and tweeted the following after the victory: “And that’s on getting a WIN in a packed area not just cause of one player on our charter flight. #SKYTOWN.”

The WNBA has committed $25 million to chartering planes for the next two seasons and Reese wanted to make sure everyone knew she was no longer flying commercial. Chasing clout and delivering a jab, all condensed into one short sentence. How wonderful. But at least she had the good sense to delete the tweet. Let’s give her that much.

At a time when things have never been better for women’s basketball, those who are benefitting the most cannot help but bare their fangs at the person primarily responsible for all of it. Well done, ladies, your true colors are shining through. When Caitlin Clark does get it all together, we’ll remind you how supportive all of you were to a sister in sports who never clapped back…at least not yet.
