Caitlin Clark’s Rough Start: Liberty Star Offers Brutal Honesty

The anointed savior of the Indiana Fever is off to a disastrous start in her hugely-anticipated WNBA career. Caitlin Clark, the electrifying top pick in the 2024 draft, has looked completely out of sorts in her first two games as a pro, getting mercilessly blown out while shooting bricks.

But don’t hit the panic button yet, Fever fans. New York Liberty superstar Sabrina Ionescu has some real talk and wise perspective for the struggling rookie phenom.

Speaking with brutal honesty, Ionescu says the adversity Clark is facing right now is actually a crucial part of any great player’s journey to the top.

“It’s just tough, you always are going to have to fight adversity and I think that’s part of everyone’s journey. Being able to weather that storm and figure out what makes you, you…” Ionescu preached.

The 2019 #1 overall pick knows a thing or two about the intense pressure and expectations thrust upon a rookie savior. Ionescu’s words carry the wisdom of someone who had to overcome her own growing pains.

“…She’s so young, so she’s going to be able to learn and grow. Times like this are when you figure out what you’re really made of and you continue to improve as a teammate, as a basketball player, as a person.”

“I’m not the least bit worried about what she’s going to be able to accomplish in the league,” Ionescu stated definitively.

The Liberty superstar isn’t just blowing smoke. She’s been in Clark’s shoes and understands this adversity is simply forging the young star’s character. With Ionescu’s reassuring mentorship, the wayward rookie has a steady hand to guide her through these early career turbulence before inevitably soaring to elite heights.
