Angel Reese Wants Her Flowers And Says That "The Reason Why We're Watching Women's Basketball Isn't Because Of 1 Person. It's Because Of Me Too"

We've blogged about the Reese/Carter/Clark stuff extensively over the last few days, and if you don't know what's going on you live under a rock so I won't recap it. The top 5 blogs on Barstool last week were all WNBA related and I can confidently guarantee you that it's the first time that has ever happened in the history of this site. The latest clip is currently going viral right now with Reese talking at media today about how she deserves some of the credit for the growth of the game. Context does matter, and she's got a point, without the 2023 women's national championship game, none of this is happening right now. Reese was at the center of that just as much as Clark, and ultimately is a star (albeit not nearly as big of one as CC) in her own right. If you don't see that then take off the rose-colored glasses.

The major difference here is that Clark obviously comes with a little more humility and doesn't ever want or pry for the credit of growing the game. But jealousy is a stinky cologne and unfortunately this will do nothing to disspell those rumors. They want to be included so bad. Reese should just continue to play villain and heel at every opportunity because she's great at it. And I'm not sure how much $1,000 is to her but skipping media obligations yesterday and getting a $1,000 fine and showing up the next day to talk about the exact same thing is peak comedy.

P.S. Shoutout to Chennedy Carter for refusing to apologize for the second straight day for what legitimately everybody is saying was a dirty play. Heel like you read about. That's how you stay relevant as a nobody in this league.

Feed me more and more layers to this story because it's the third of the month and rent is due. The numbies machine keeps turning!
