Cameron Brink was taken right after Caitlin Clark. She has that Gabrielle Reece runway tall model looks.

I don't think I'll be following WNBA as much as I followed the women's NCAA but it seems like people in the Midwest are latching on to CC.

Just goes to show that being an athlete is not enough and you really have to be a media personality to have a following.

CC will only make $76K as a pro but she has a $28M deal with Nike.

Just amazing if you can appeal to the general public, your value goes up. Used to be a goodwill factor in business now its a tangible amount.

The WNBA feels like they won the lottery with Caitlin Clark by having teams travel by private jets.

I can remember when I saw Kareem at LAX but everybody respected his private space. Read in the paper where some Italian fan got into his face to try to take a picture and he pushed him out of the way and broke his camera. Then Wembenyana gets touched by Brittney Spears in Vegas and she gets accosted by Security. Some people cannot respect personal space.

CC should serve as a model for budding athletes as much for athletic ability but more so for her ability to stay humble, speak respectfully of your opponents, and don't get baited by reporters into saying anything controversial but concentrate on saying things to make the game competitive.

Caitlin Clark and the Indiana Fever are off to a bad start. Past great women's basketball players had a curb your enthusiasm analyst about Caitlin Clark. They kind of backed off because it's bad for bidness. It could end up like those one-hit wonder rock bands who flew on private jets when they were on top of the world. Only to go back to commercial flights playing in clubs.

I agree with Draymond Green when he said that the Indiana Fever need an enforcer. "The Great One" Wayne Gretzky had one to protect him. Maybe they can get a trans athlete on the team. We'll see how many ex-players who are pro trans playing women's sports would agree with that. It might be different to them when it's their sport.

Angel Reese said she would play the villain role in the WNBA. Is this roller-derby? Where's manager El Fabaloso disrespecting the Hawaii fans at the Blaisdell Center? I didn't understand the scoring system in roller-derby. I just memba the most beautiful woman in the world Racquel Welch busting out in her roller-derby uniform in the movie.

So much is made of CC not making the Olympic team. Give it a rest. What would happen if she was on the Olympic team and they did not make the gold for the 8th straight. Cheer for Breanna Stewart and the Olympic team.

Iowa is close to Canada. Caitlin Clark could play for Canada. It's not like the USA would lose to Canada. Women's basketball is about drama.
O Canada!

Check out Toby Fournier, Canada who has a scholarship next year with Duke. 6'2 and dunks during games. I know of college men's starters that cannot dunk at 6'2.

Get Caitlin Clark into the Olympics. By any means necessary. Except the Tonya Harding way.

Calling racism on every quote is like holding in football. You can call holding on every play.

That's a great bidness model. Insult your public paying fans. She uses the Donald Trump's model.

The WNBA has better games than the NBA Finals. It was a boring fourth game of the NBA Finals after the first half. Much more interesting to watch the players that will represent the USA in the Olympics. The combo of Ionescu and Stewart from the NY team is pretty solid. Caught the Fever/Sky game with the Fever winning and thought that they're starting to look like the Iowa team that reach the finals but Caitlin Clark might be getting tired easier because the speed of the WNBA is a step up from the NCAA. Kinda looked like Angel Reese might have had some memories roaming around in her head when she got a flagrant foul 1 on her attempt to block CC's layup. [-X
