    Just have to give this young woman a shout out. Set the women’s career NCAA scoring record and finished with a season high 49 points. She’s unbelievable and I would pay $$$’s to see her play.

    was listening to a npr report on her. Apparently 9 dollar tickets are going for 250 up for any game she’s playing in. Think if you wanna be closer to the court it was like 2500 or more.

    She would have to declare for the NBA draft just as the WNBA draft. Every team would have a shot at drafting her of course. I would expect a big market team to actually take a flyer with a second rounder. But let's not pretend that she could guard any NBA players. But the NBA is full of players that can shoot but not be able to guard a chair. She is deserving of a shot like any other draft eligible male player. It would not suck if Portland took a look. She puts butts in seats. Pretty sure Jody and Vulcan loves players like that.

    Clark deserves a shot like anyone else at the NBA, but there's no way she'd ever, ever sniff a roster. She's 6'0", 155 pounds and she'd never get a shot off if the other team guarded her. And defensively would be even worse.

    The NBA is irrelevant for Caitlin Clark. She is going to supercharge the WNBA I believe. Players like her will make that league a financial success.

    Just wondering, was there any hype when Kelsey Plum became the all time scoring leader?

    Some, but nothing like what is going on now. Clark is drilling logo three's. Fans love that.

    Glad for her to become successful, but I doubt she'll "super charge" the WNBA.

    If Iowa plays in Portland I guarantee I will be there. I'd love to see her live. She's got range like Curry and Lillard.

    Good luck to her in the WNBA. She’ll have much better competition, but perhaps she’ll her change her League like Curry and Lillard did for the NBA.
