Caitlin Clark’s influence on the WNBA has drawn high praise from many quarters, but perhaps none more striking than that of ESPN analyst and former Washington quarterback, Robert Griffin III.

Griffin praises Caitlin Clark’s impact

Griffin compared Clark’s impact on WNBA viewership to the revolutionary effect Tiger Woods had on professional golf.

“Caitlin Clark haters are punching air right now. The WNBA All-Star votes say what most of us already knew. Caitlin Clark is the WNBA’s Tiger Woods. More people watch the W because of her. Period. Total votes increased by 598% for the top 5 players from 2023 to 2024,”Griffin stated.

Clark, a rookie with the Indiana Fever, has been a focal point in transforming public perception of the WNBA.

Her dynamic presence on the court and her knack for making headlines have garnered widespread attention.

Despite her detractors, Clark’s ability to draw viewers is undeniable.

Tiger Woods’ comparison is perhaps the ultimate compliment in the sports world.

His influence went beyond the green, changing how people viewed and engaged with golf.

Clark’s burgeoning career suggests she might do the same for women’s basketball.

Caitlin Clark & Angel Reese dominate All-Star headlines

Caitlin Clark and fellow rookie Angel Reese have both played pivotal roles in the WNBA’s surge in popularity this season.

Their college rivalry, which captured the nation’s attention, has seamlessly transitioned into the professional arena.

The recent announcement of both Clark and Reese being selected for the WNBA All-Star team underscores their significant contributions to the league.

Griffin dismissed any notion that their All-Star selections were based solely on their rivalry or popularity.

“Caitlin Clark and Angel Reese both earned the right to be WNBA All-Stars with their play individually,” he asserted on social media.

“Not JUST because of a rivalry. Not JUST because of popularity. They are both BREAKING RECORDS and making a difference on and off the court in Indiana and Chicago.”

Clark and Reese’s inclusion in the All-Star team adds to a star-studded lineup that will face the U.S. Olympic team, featuring luminaries like A’ja Wilson and Breanna Stewart.

Clark led the fan vote with 700,735 votes, while Reese secured fifth place with 381,518 votes.

This marks a significant milestone in their careers and a testament to their burgeoning influence in the league.
