Chicago Sky Player Defends Angel Reese’s Mindset During Caitlin Clark Flagrant Foul: ‘It definitely wasn’t with any ill intent

Members of the Chicago Sky’s roster and coaching staff are surely tired of hearing takes about Angel Reese’s flagrant foul on Caitlin Clark. 

Just about everybody in the sports world has been giving their opinion about whether the foul was intentional, what the punishment should have been, and about Reese’s comments about the whistle postgame.

Anybody who has watched or played basketball knows that these types of fouls happen in the game. And this is exactly what Reese’s teammate Isabelle Harrison said in a recent interview with WGN 9 Chicago.

“1000% it was a play for the ball,” said Harrison.

“People don’t talk about Angel’s [work on] defense,” Harrison continued. “We are a defensive-minded type of team. I know Angel’s mindset. It definitely wasn’t with any ill intent. I would know, I was there.”

“For people saying otherwise, it’s not even about basketball at this point,” Harrison said.

“It’s a physical league. If you want to watch something less physical, watch golf… That’s the W. Get with it or get lost.”

The Sky must be excited for their game on Thursday game; if only so they can put all of this discussion about Sunday’s loss behind them.

Her attitude isn’t all that exceptional, though. No matter the sport, no matter the league, more experienced players are bound to carry a chip on their shoulder when they go up against younger peers. That’s especially true when a rookie has as much hype as Caitlin Clark.

“Beside three point shooting what does she bring to the table man,” Carter wrote.

In another, she called Reese “my dawg fasho” after the forward appeared to cheer from the bench after the contact.
