    I don't know if it's racism. Reese and Clark should be good for the NBA regardless of the color of their skin. Clark could be the main focal point, if she's as good as advertised. Remember how the NBA became popular with Magic and Bird, but became must watch with Jordan. Then, once the GOAT retired, the NBA slid back to third place behind football and baseball.

    As for the Olympics, the orginal Dream Team didn't take Shaq and he was clearly the best player out of that draft. Which, considering how loaded that class was is an accomplishment. Jamel Hill actually made a salient point on the subject, saying the WNBA rookies have to go from the grind of the college season straight to practice and the WNBA season. Any rookies would need to take some time away from the sport just to catch their breath.

    In this comparison Juju Watkins will be MJ imo

    Her skill level at 6-2 is ridiculous. Her freshman season was already so good

    She put 51 on Stanford, as a freshman lol

    The top 9 attended games in the WNBA were Caitlin Clark games. Here are the numbers.

    There are white players on team USA so why would White people not support?

    Want them to win? Sure. Watch? No.

    Won't watch men's either. Basketball is so boring to watch.

    Re: Caitlin Clark

    The Caitlin Clark hatred is absurd. Sheís the Steph curry of the womenís basketball - transcending. And I think it was the race baiter of the year jemele hill who said itís just because shes white and no black girls get the same treatment (mightíve been wnba players too)Ö did Simone Biles and Serena Williams not?? Of course they did - they too were transcending athletes. Case closed

    Is Angel Reese hated by racists as well? Curious.

    Not sure, maybe.

    Havenít heard 10% the hate in general soÖ. Nor 10% the interest, once again, soÖ

    But sure, itís feasible. That direction of racism still exists, if only dwarfed by the other direction.

    Not in the WNBA. Regular life ..Iím sure sheís experienced some. Itís the opposite for Clark.

    Itís really sad that the whole league canít recognize how much Clark will help them ALL. More viewers = more fans = more $$. For all.
