Both Angel Reese and Rory Mcllroy showed unsportsmanslike behavior yesterday. But, golf could use an Angel Reese type player. DeChambeau with the putt for the win. Here comes Mcllroy with the hard foul upside DeChambeau's head. Not exactly what he had in mind.

When the USA women's basketball team play the WNBA all stars. Will Caitlin Clark and Angel Reese be on the same team of WNBA all stars?

CC did bring a lot of attention to the WNBA so kudos to her for all women athletes. The WNBA and the US Olympic team plays a pretty physical brand of basketball; something that CC might not be able to bring to the floor at this point in her career. It will be interesting when the WNBA all stars play the US team. Camila Cardoso will be able to match Brittney Griner's 6'9 and Angel Reese is a tough power forward. I kind of wonder what its going to be like for Griner going International after spending time in a Russian prison. CC and Angel Reese played together in the U19 team that barely beat Canada.

The "phenomenon" feels a bit like Linsanity to me. I hope the flame burns longer.

She looks strong, legit big girl. But if I was GM, I would take an athletic 6"8 WNBA player vs someone that's over 7 feet tall.

China wants to showcase their 7 footers. I get it. But there's got to be more upper 6 feet something players than 7 feet tall players, men and women. By being "smaller" they got to be more athletic, I would think.

The fact that some people are making it into something more than just basketball is just awful. Nothing else matters; basketball is the main topic. You can earn more money by betting on anything with friends on betmelive. Although I'm sorry for the LSU players, someone had to lose. Angel Reese looked elegant in interviews.

Yeah, I agree with its just about basketball but some people like to focus on the drama. I think CC keeps it about basketball and doesn't really talk trash about how she was fouled and by who and whether it was unfair.

This was actually a pretty good game with Fever vs. Mercury's Taurasi and Griner.

I saw the second half of this game. Clark's court awareness and passing is really good. She hit some big shots during the 17 point run and almost had a triple double.

Fever vs NY Liberty 7/6 7amHT/10amPDT on CBS. I'd like to see Ionescu/Stewart, Olympic tandem for the Liberty and how the Fever respond to an earlier season loss. The Fever games I've watched, when the Fever has no answer for the run by the other team NaLyssa Smith comes through and muscles a basket for the Fever. I've always enjoyed the enforcer for teams like Draymond; except he's not a scorer.

The Fever/Liberty game was worth the price of admission for the Indiana crowd. When CC got her 10th rebound the crowd cheered for the first triple double by a rookie.

Gee, maybe I was wrong in my original assessment of Clark not being physical enough for the Olympic team. Yesterday she ran through the Phoenix Mercury for the second time this season.

She always comes out with the right answers when asked tough questions like racism and misogyny.
