The WNBA is giving “the savior of their league” a very unfriendly welcome, yet she overcomes the hate.

We previously reported on the horrible reception that the WNBA gave Caitlin Clark.

WHAT A DISGRACE: The WNBA, the Coach, and the Refs Are Cooking the Golden Goose – Caitlin Clark

Dave Portnoy from Barstool Sports commented on how terrible the WNBA has been on Caitlin Clark. In this play from Saturday, last year’s league MVP puts an unnecessary pick on Clark when she isn’t looking. Breanna Stewart is bitter towards Clark and may be jealous because no one knows who she is but everyone knows who Clark is.

The league is calling turnovers on Clark and doing something unheard of when reporting them. The statistician at the WNBA adds “bad pass” to the sheet. This is something we’ve never seen before. The following was from the game earlier this week.

Here is an example of a “bad pass” from Caitlin Clark that was labeled a turnover on Clark. (Hint – if the ball hits your teammate’s hands it’s not your fault if they can’t catch the ball.)

Here is another moment where Clark’s team can’t keep up with her.

Despite all the hate, Caitlin Clark became part of WNBA history in her first three games.

In addition, the game on Saturday was the largest paid gate in WNBA history.

The New York Liberty and Indiana Fever made history Saturday, as their game had the largest paid gate of any WNBA game since the league’s inception in 1997.

According to Spotify’s Bri Lewerke, the Liberty and Fever drew over $2 million in ticket revenue. They also sold out the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York, which holds nearly 18,000 fans for basketball.

Fans were on hand to witness just the third WNBA regular-season game in the career of 2024 No. 1 overall pick Caitlin Clark, plus a pair of former No. 1 overall picks in Sabrina Ionescu and Breanna Stewart played for the Liberty as well.

After all of this, here is where Clark stands in the WNBA after three bad games.

Will the WNBA destroy Caitlin Clark and the league, or will Caitlin Clark stand above them all and show the world the “savior” she is?
