She’s JUST a Shooter, she does not do things that win games. Hence, the reason she’s NEVER won anything….HS, college, and now the pros. She just has the media attention …
Not true, she won a share of the Big 10 regular season championship in 21-22, a conference so terrible that it hasn't won a national championship in women's basketball since 1999.

I thought the big 10 men’s basketball was bad for not winning a natty since 2000. Such a bad basketball conference. Oof

Such a casual

Her net rating is 124th in the league at -16, her efg% is 64th at 48%, her assist/to is 78th at 1.11, her season +/- is THIRD TO LAST in the entire league. And her team’s record is 3 and freakin 10.

ESPN ranked her the 6th-best rookie this season based on PER, Win Share, and wins generated. A recap of her snippet in the article

The simplest way to break down Clark’s standing is she simply is not shooting well enough, scoring volume points on lots of shots on an awful team and is a defensive liability.

15, 5, and 5 isn’t even that amazing. Scottie Barnes averaged those numbers for the Toronto Raptors this year

Bradley Beal.

Angel Reese extended her double-double streak to four contests, finishing with 20 points and 10 rebounds. Reese becomes the first WNBA 2024 rookie to notch 100+ points and 100+ rebounds in this young season!

Don't look CC, your friend is gaining on you for ROY.

If the WNBA was smart they would have put her on the team in the Christian Laetner roll of not playing. Just for views they would get. It's not like the last person on the bench is going to get more than scrub minutes either way. Plus, it might humble her to not get any playing time at all.

I like leading Hawkeye fans toward elevating the conference tournament championships their women’s team has won.

Because if winning the tournament of an elite conference is what matters, the ISU men are a clear blue bloods right with UConn and Kansas.

#1 offensive rebounder in pros right out of the gate.

She’s the only player averaging 5pts/4rb/.5ast/.2st/.2%3p and hasn’t fouled out of a game yet! Put her on the Olympic team!

Who cares, she’s a point guard. Although she does seem to get a decent amount of them, surprisingly.
No idea if there's data to back this up, but in WBB it seems like the difference in boards for bigs vs guards would be a lot tighter than in MBB. 6'4" guard going up against 7' (often multiple on the floor at a time) vs 5'11" going up against 6'5". Probably more long boards to that bigs in MBB would be able to get up and snag.

The post you replied to was talking about the first player to 100 points AND 100 rebounds this season. If you didn't care, why the hell even reply? Just admit you either didn't read or didn't understand the post you replied to.
