WNBA Legend Flat-Out Said She Wants To ‘Kill’ Incoming Rookies Like Caitlin Clark

It’s safe to say that Caitlin Clark has the biggest target on her back and she has done nothing but be brilliant playing basketball in college.

Caitlin Clark, the University of Iowa basketball player who has dazzled crowds with her deep shooting range, has become quite the target of current and past WNBA players.

Diana Taurasi – a legend in both women’s college basketball at UConn and the WNBA with the Phoenix Mercury – had a stark warning for Clark that produced a ton of backlash when she admitted to ESPN that “reality” was coming for the Iowa star because she won’t be playing against teenagers anymore.

“Reality is coming,” she said on ESPN after the Hawkeyes’ win over the Huskies. “You look superhuman playing against some 18-year-olds but you’re going to come play with some grown women that have been playing professional basketball for a long time.

“There is gonna be a transition period where you’re going to have to give yourself some grace as a rookie.”

Taurasi also had something to say about LSU Tigers star Angel Reese when she shockingly blurted out, “Wave bye-bye to your own career” when the star could be seen waving to a Middle Tennessee player in the Round of 32.

Taurasi was also asked if she’d take UConn Huskies star Paige Bueckers over Clark in the upcoming WNBA Draft and she made it clear, “I’m taking Paige,” Taurasi replied bluntly. “Next question.”

Social media recently just came across an old video from four years ago that was a conversation between Sue Bird and Megan Rapinoe when Taurasi chimed in and stated she wants to “kill” rookies when she first goes against them amid the comments she has been making against players like Caitlin Clark.

“Every time you play rookies, you just wanted to [expletive] kill them,” she said in the video. “Physically, just punk them. There’s this mental bullying that takes place right before the ball goes up. And it happens in different ways, it happens like, ‘Oh you had such a good senior year I’m going to bust your [expletive] right now.’”

Diani Taurasi has said so much about Caitlin Clark that when the Iowa star finally hits the WNBA floor, at least three of her games will be highly anticipated.

Taurasi and the Phoenix Mercury will play the Indiana Fever three times next season. The Fever are widely expected to take Caitlin Clark with the no. 1 pick in the draft.
