This was one of the main points in this vid gil and the others were making. Gil straight up said get these dinosaurs out the league. IIRC Lexi agreed that the league caters too much to the older women. Gil said the foreign players can come into the WNBA at 17-19 with no following, while the US born girls have to waih 2-3 years to get in the league, when they have the following. This is also the convo I think Lexi made the comment that said the coaches are too old school as well.

yeah they need to move past the Taurasi and Sue Bird era
Taurasi was a great player and ambassador for the game but she a dinosaur fr

Right now its the Aces-Liberty, then everybody else
Need more rivalries and well run franchises

These WNBA franchises will be forced to change their approach and cater to young players because they are now the draws and cash cows. No one was showing up to watch those bull daggers manhandle each other during those prime Brittney Griner years.

They better realize the object of the league is to make money and not bully young players out the league.
I hope so.

Seriously, she can get way better at her sport because of her athleticism/build. Plenty peopple aren't done growing as a professional at 20.

Problem is she goes from LSU's branding to whatever team's branding she's going to in the WNBA. That's basically the biggest problem most of these women college players will run into as well.

At the end of the day, she just looks right in LSU themes. Same goes for Juju Watkins.

This right here is key, they've got some big names coming up who could make the league more money. Caitlin Clark coming into the WNBA should get a nice welcome from every player, coach, etc. Realize what you've got on your hands that could bring the league to a new height.

She’s going to struggle against women her own size. She has no footwork/post game, no jumper, or true offensive game. That throw crap at the rim and pogo for the rebound shyt not gonna work
That’s good it will show all that shyt she been talking in college was just a fluke and will get exposed on a big stage

She making big money with NIL coming into the WNBA, I could see there being tension. Only 12 teams so the spots are so small, there's no room for error. The WNBA season start one month from now May 14, that's a quick turnaround to work on her game.


Gotdamn do they even have summer league??? :dahell: :dahell:

nikkas in here with analysis and shyt :what:

Muthatfukkas actually watch the WNBA?

:mjlol: :dead:
Exactly. I heard the 2nd round draft picks get cut right off the jump and all the old bitter butch chicks in the league, or her very own teammates, are going to elbow Reese in the mouth soon as she steps foot on the court. I'm not even convinced Caitlyn Clark is going to become something in the WNBA. Better milk the college experience as much as she can.

"Brehs" on here talking bout Angel fukking Reese like she's Bronny James averaging 3 PPG off the bench. :dead: :unimpressed: She is going be a no brainer lottery pick and will ball out. Some absolutely mind numbing takes I've been seeing on here ever since that LSU loss, wild flagrant shyt on a supposed "black" website... :mjpls:

You don't seem to understand that in the WNBA outside of the Top 5 picks or so you not even guaranteed to be on the roster for more then a year. "Lottery" in the WNBA is really the Top 3 , and she not going Top 3:mjlol:

She's an undersized center at 6'2, and on her layups her release point is that of a 5'8 guard, while having no J. We've seen her get her shyt blocked by heavy-footed white girls... short term, she has no chance at the next level.

Why do people act like she can’t get developed in the pros? She has a trait that she’s elite in that will undoubtedly transfer in her rebounding

They don’t develop players in the WNBA. Being a first round pick doesn’t even guarantee you will make the roster. There are so few teams and roster spots that project players are just cut loose.

Now she has some fame to her name so some team may keep her around to sell tickets but if she doesn’t produce quickly they will drop her.
