Jackie Young revealed the reason why she intentionally untied her shoes for Caitlin Clark

Jackie Young explained why she untied her shoes for Caitlin Clark, and her reasoning proves she’s the consummate professional.

On Tuesday night, during a matchup with the Indiana Fever, the rookie fell on the floor, sliding across the hardwood after possibly tripping over her own feet. Young, a former No. 1 pick and a six-year WNBA veteran, quickly untied her shoes, causing a game delay. Jackie stood next to Caitlin, tying one shoe and the other, giving her time to recover.

Young also seemingly checked in on Clark to make sure she was OK. On Thursday, after a win against the Washington Mystics, the Aces guard was asked about her reaction to that moment. Here’s what she shared with the media:

“Yeah, I think…just doing the right thing — just making sure she’s good…and just checking on her. I gave her a little tap…make sure she’s cool….”

“Because at the end of the day, you know we just want to play this game, have fun, be healthy…just giving her a little bit of time…to reset, regroup and just make sure she’s okay.”
