WNBA Star Took A Petty Shot At Caitlin Clark Over Her Playing Style During Iowa’s Final Four Win vs. UConn

Caitlin Clark found herself on the receiving end of some criticism from a WNBA star during Friday night’s Final Four affair between Iowa and UConn.

Clark is one of the most exciting players to watch in today’s game, with her shooting range especially remarkable. However, you won’t get everyone to agree that her playing style is the best.

Las Vegas Aces star Kelsey Plum was on an alternate ESPN broadcast on the night and took a thinly veiled swipe at Caitlin as she claims she doesn’t shoot logo threes because she has A’ja Wilson on the block.

“You know why I don’t shoot logo threes? Because A’ja Wilson’s on the block,” she said.

The comment has drawn the ire of fans online as they reckon Kelsey was being unfairly critical.

“That was some real S- from Kelsey,” one fan wrote.

Plum Wasn’t The Only WNBA Star To Take Aim At Caitlin Clark On Friday

Plum, though, wasn’t the only person associated with the WNBA who had something negative to say about Caitlin Clark’s shooting from long range.

Women’s basketball icon Diana Taurasi also took a shot at the Hawkeyes star, claiming Geno Auriemma would never let her shoot deep threes at UConn.

“Heck no, like he didn’t even let us dribble,” she said after she was asked whether the Huskies head coach would allow Clark to play her style of basketball under him.

Clark has found herself fielding a lot of criticism lately. WNBA legend Sheryl Swoopes recently made headlines for taking shots at her, though she has since claimed to have apologized to the Iowa guard personally.

The 22-year-old is one of the best players in college at the moment and became the highest-ever scorer this season. Unfortunately, it comes with the territory, but she will have the opportunity to go at Plum soon enough as she’s headed to the WNBA herself.
