Team USA Coach Cheryl Reeve Made It Clear What She Thinks About The WNBA’s Obsession With Caitlin Clark

Caitlin Clark and Angel Reese, two of the top overall picks, have brought the WNBA unparalleled prominence. Additionally, only some people are enjoying all the attention the former Iowa Hawkeye receives, even if Clark’s presence, in particular, is a massive benefit for all WNBA clubs due to higher ticket sales and visibility.

One of those individuals is Minnesota Lynx Cheryl Reeve, who will also lead the USA Basketball Women’s National Team in 2024.

Reeve, who will serve in the same head coaching role for the 2024 USA Basketball Women’s National Team alongside Mike Thibault, Kara Lawson, and Joni Taylor, recently had her Minnesota Lynx team make its preseason debut against Angel Reese and the Chicago Sky on Friday.

The game was unavailable to people to watch on television, but thousands of fans tuned in to watch a live stream from a fan on social media.

Clark and the Indiana Fever also played their game on Friday night when they took on the Dallas Wings. WNBA social platforms promoted the top overall pick’s debut by making it available for free nationally on the league’s app.

Reeve seemed offended by the fact that only ticket holders would be allowed to watch the Lynx, which played their preseason opener against the Chicago Sky on Friday.

“ALSO in action tonight – @minnesotalynx vs @chicagosky. 7 pm CST,” Reeve wrote on X on Friday.

“Though fans won’t be able to watch, #Lynx fans can go to the Lynx app to follow along via play-by-play. Or if you are in market, come to the game…as we start the season off right #12teams #theWismorethanoneplayer.”

Caitlin Clark will earn women in the NBA far more money than they are now making, despite Reeve and other WNBA players/coaches finding it hard to accept.

The 57-year-old Reeve has led the Lynx to four WNBA titles since taking over as head coach in 2010. She also serves as the head coach of the USA women’s basketball team. She also won two WNBA championships as an assistant coach with the Detroit Shock (who subsequently changed their name to the Wings).

Reeve could very well picture herself as Caitlin Clark’s coach at the Olympics.

Will Caitlin Clark Make the Team USA Olympic Roster?

The women’s basketball lineup for Team USA is still undetermined as the Olympics get underway on July 26, 2024.

The WNBA season is about to begin, and the first few weeks will be used as Clark’s training camp for the Paris Games.

The Olympic 5-on-5 women’s competition will feature twelve teams: Australia, the United States, Belgium, Canada, China, France, Germany, Japan, Nigeria, Puerto Rico, Serbia, and Spain. Each roster has a size of twelve.

Clark has to prove her case with her WNBA play because she did not attend the April camp or any other camp for the senior national team. Clark has played for younger USA Basketball teams. The Fever play Connecticut to start the season on Tuesday.
