WNBA legend takes issue with coverage of Caitlin Clark fouls: 'We can’t make it seem like she was assaulted'

Angel Reese committed a flagrant foul on Caitlin Clark in the Indiana Fever’s victory against the Chicago Sky. Nick Wright reflects on the rivalry between Caitlin Clark and Angel Reese and why it’s good for the sport.

WNBA legend Sheryl Swoopes took issue with the discourse every time Indiana Fever rookie Caitlin Clark is fouled and pointed to what happened Sunday with Chicago Sky forward Angel Reese.

Reese clocked Clark on the head while Clark was driving to the basket for a lay-up. Reese was given a foul, and it was upgraded to a flagrant-1. It kick-started a firestorm across social media.

Swoopes, who appeared on former NBA star Gilbert Arenas’ podcast "Gil’s Arena," said fans and those talking about the WNBA cannot seem like Clark was assaulted.

"It’s the clip they wanna post because they’re gonna get all these likes and reposts, but that’s a basketball play," Swoopes said of Reese’s foul. "She hit her on the head, so, of course, it should be upgraded to a flagrant-1 … Can we keep playing basketball?

"My thing is, every time Caitlin gets fouled we can’t make it seem like she was assaulted. Fouling is a part of basketball. You can look at a whole lot of different games and players and clips. … A’ja Wilson when they played Dallas, A’ja had a bloody nose, a black eye. Like, it’s basketball."

Swoopes then pointed to both Reese and Clark, saying the foul was just a basketball play.
