WNBA Rookie Caitlin Clark Under Fire as Indiana Fever Fans Blame Her for Winless Start

The WNBA dream has quickly turned into a nightmare for rookie sensation Caitlin Clark. Only four games into her pro career, the basketball phenom finds herself drowning in a tidal wave of expectations with her new team, the Indiana Fever.

The latest chapter in Clark’s forgettable start came in a razor-thin 88-84 loss to the Connecticut Sun. It left the Fever still desperately seeking their first win of the season at 0-4. While the game went down to the wire, with No.1 draft pick Aliyah Boston narrowly missing a game-tying layup with six ticks left, Clark’s performance emerged as the centerpiece of fan ire.

Fans Turn on Budding Star Caitlin Clark

Despite contributing 17 points, 3 rebounds and 5 assists, Clark drew the wrath of Fever faithfuls. Her first technical foul in WNBA play proved the flashpoint, as fans pinpointed it as the moment momentum shifted irrevocably.

The takes on social media were as blistering as they were unforgiving. One fan fumed, “Funny how folks blame Boston when at the 4-minute mark of the 4th, Fever up 4, Clark coughed it up for a Harris 3, then another turnover, then a awful foul, then a dumb tech!”

Another piled on, “Boston will get roasted for this loss, but Clark’s mindless transition foul and idiotic technical flipped the game. Very next play, she coughs it up again! Let’s be real here, don’t just torch Boston.”

A third fan assessed coldly, “Clark’s a defensive liability. That pointless technical and stupid challenge cost them big time.”

Storm Brews Next for Clark, Fever

Clark and the still winless Fever have little time to lick their wounds. They’ll try to snap the skid when they host the Seattle Storm on Wednesday, May 22. Whether Clark can shake off her disastrous start remains to be seen
