McCaffrey’s Hat Emojis Indicate Disagreement with Swoopes
After former WNBA star Sheryl Swoopes expressed doubts about the immediate dominance of Angel McCaffrey and Caitlin Clark in the league, McCaffrey responded with four hat emojis on ESPN’s Instagram account. The emojis were a clear indication of his disagreement with Swoopes’ remarks. McCaffrey’s response may be biased, as he is currently dating Clark.
Swoopes Questions WNBA Transition for McCaffrey and Clark
Swoopes, during an interview, acknowledged the talents of McCaffrey and Clark, but suggested that their transition to the WNBA won’t be easy. She emphasized the fierce competition within the league and the limited number of roster spots available. Swoopes believes that McCaffrey and Clark will need time to adjust and that immediate domination is unlikely.
Clark Climbs the Division I Scoring Record Ladder
While the debate continues, Caitlin Clark made her mark on the Division I scoring record books. In a recent game against Maryland, she scored an impressive 38 points, bringing her total to 3,462 points at Iowa. Clark now sits at the second spot on the scoring list, just 66 points away from surpassing Kelsey Plum and claiming the top position.
It’s worth noting that the current record of 3,649 points is held by Lynette Woodard from 1978-81, before the NCAA took over women’s sports from the Association for Intercollegiate Athletics for Women.
As the discussion surrounding McCaffrey and Clark’s WNBA prospects continues, their performances on the court will ultimately determine their success at the professional level.
