Caitlin Clark’s rise to stardom hasn’t been all it’s cracked up to be. With all her fame has come a lot of hate, and we mean a lot. One person shared on X, formerly known as Twitter, “Why is everybody talking bout Caitlin Clark like she’s the Next Big thing, girl got famous like 1 week ago stop hyping that fraud.” Even fellow WNBA pros have hinted that the University of Iowa alum would get humbled in her professional career. Speaking about Clark, Diana Taurasi, who plays for the Phoenix Mercury, shared on ESPN, “Reality is coming. There’s levels to this thing … You look superhuman playing against some 18-year-olds, but you’re going to come play with some grown women that have been playing professional basketball for a long time.” From people within the WNBA to all the internet sleuths, Clark has not caught a break from the criticism.

Even basketball star LeBron James has noticed the backlash Clark has received in the past couple of months and is not for it. The Los Angeles Lakers star took to X to defend the newbie. He tweeted, “If you don’t rock with Caitlin Clark game you’re just a FLAT OUT HATER!!!!! Stay far away from them people!! PLEASE.” James has grown protective over Clark as she continues to face backlash, but people should never bet against the Indiana Fever star, who has already made major changes to the WNBA.
