Caitlin Clark seemed to take a swipe at Caitlin Clark and Charles Barkley after the Chicago Sky picked up their second win of the season on Thursday night.

The Sky are 2-1 following a win over the New York Liberty. Meanwhile, Clark’s Fever are languishing at 0-5 to start the season.

Barkley, on the other hand, left WNBA fans, and likely players, upset with his comments on Wednesday night. The Hall of Famer called out WNBA players for being “petty” and hating on Caitlin because of all the attention she’s getting during ‘Inside The NBA.’


He suggested that players should appreciate the two-time College Player of the Year for all the fans she’s brought to the league, also referencing the arrival of charter flights and the boost in ratings.


The comments did not go down with fans, given that there’s hardly any evidence of Clark being hated. While Diana Taurasi’s warning is something that could be considered, that’s all it was: a warning. To be fair, it was not displaced as Clark’s finding it hard to adjust to the rigors of the WNBA.

Angel Reese Takes Aim

Angel Reese caught wind of the comments as she appeared to take a shot at Barkley and Clark after the Sky became the first team to beat the Liberty for the season on Thursday.

“And that’s on getting a WIN in a packed arena not just cause of one player on our charter flight,” she wrote in a tweet.

Reese has deleted the post, but not before certain accounts got screenshots.

The rookies’ rivalry dates back to their college days. And the fact that it’s followed them to the WNBA should make things more exciting for fans.


Who Are Caitlin Clark’s Parents? Taking a Closer Look in the Life of WNBA Star

The WNBA newbie, Caitlin Clark, is already having a hard time adjusting to the big league and with the rumors circulating about her parents’ divorce, it can be assumed that there is turbulence in her private life too.

Clark’s parents, Brent and Anne Nizzi-Clark, who have often been spotted cheering for their daughter from the courtside, came under scrutiny for their seating arrangements. The speculation of their possible rift began on March 25 when the Iowa Hawkeyes played the West Virginia Mountaineers in the NCAA Tournament.

The couple, who otherwise sat together, were seen keeping a distance in the arena. This intrigued the hoop enthusiasts, and they started questioning the marital status of the Clarks. However, these are just noises and there has been no evidence to support the rumor.

As per ESPN’s report, the two attended the Indiana point guard’s first regular season game against the Connecticut Sun. Both Brent and Anne have been a huge support to not only Caitlin Clark but also her two other siblings, as all three have strived for excellence in their athletic journey.
