Angel Reese fight in front of recruits among new details from offseason LSU, Kim Mulkey reporting

According to Kent Babb of The Washington Postwhose previously unpublished details went public through an open records request by the The Daily Advertiser, Reese’s behavioral issues stemmed from an altercation she had with a teammate in front of a recruit. Mulkey reportedly made players turn off their phones and leave them in another room in 2022 during a team meeting following the alleged skirmish.“This was after a fight involving Angel Reese, witnessed by one of my sources, that occurred in front of visiting recruits,” Babb wrote. “One of these individuals present in the team meeting shared that Mulkey said: ‘This entire locker room is trash.’”

The Daily Advertiser’s story reports its publication was “unable to independently confirm whether Reese was involved in a fight. Efforts to get comment from Reese through her WNBA team the Chicago Sky were unsuccessful. LSU did not comment on the matter.”

A previous Washington Post profile report on Mulkey painted her in a not-so-positive manner as someone who “holds grudges” as a tyrant, but the mother of current Tigers starter Flau’jae Johnson remains supportive of the four-time national champion. Kia Brooks defended Mulkey’s abrasive coaching style, saying her tough love style is actually a positive.

“I trust her with my kid. Honestly, I do, because she’s not going to baby Flau’jae,” Brooks said, via Jacques Doucet of WAFB Channel 9. “She’s going to make her a woman. When she leaves here she’s going to be a woman, you know what I’m saying? And I respect that because I’m not easy on Flau. I was hard on her. Anything you want in life you gotta go get it, you gotta go fight for it. There are a million kids out here trying to do what you’re doing, so what’s going to separate you?”

Before the story’s publication, Mulkey threatened to sue the newspaper. She called it a “false story” and blamed the reporter for going after her and LSU’s program.

In a recent episode of First Take, host Stephen A. Smith surprised everyone by discussing the challenges faced by Indiana Fever star player Caitlin Clark. While giving his opinion on the criticism surrounding Clark, Smith mentioned a controversial name. The 56-year-old NBA analyst brought up Donald Trump and discussed how race plays a role in Clark’s controversies.

“There’s a broader issue here that can’t be escaped. And that is this: she is a white young lady. And she’s been a magnet in a way that has benefitted the league in ways that others have not, even though their efforts have been worthy and deserving of being as celebrated, if not even more celebrated…. in the end, if you’re white, you’re bright, you’re right, and as a result, the shine comes your way in the eyes of a lot of people in America.” Smith said.

“You have somebody that’s a presidential candidate. What is his claim to fame? Make America Great Again. What have people interpreted that to mean? Make America White Again… what has that led to? A divide. It is not a divide that is created. It is a divide that is illuminated because it highlights and shows that it’s been in existence all along. And It hasn’t gone anywhere.” Smith added.

Caitlin Clark Racism Controversy

After making her debut in the WNBA, Clark has been involved in numerous controversies on a weekly basis. Recently, her fans have been bringing up her name in discussions about racism, misogyny, and homophobia. During an interview, the 22-year-old Fever player was asked about these topics, and she said that her focus was on basketball. Despite Clark ignoring the fans’ actions, another player, Connecticut Sun guard DiJonai Carrington, criticized Clark for ignoring such essential incidents.
