“Who Does He Think He Is, Caitlin Clark?” – Iowa Star Catches Stray From Atlanta Hawks Announcer During Jayson Tatum’s Complaining

Caitlin Clark

There’s no doubt that Caitlin Clark is a superstar in the game of women’s basketball.

One could argue that at the college level, Clark has pushed the game to be more popular than it has ever been. How can that be true? Well, ask yourself how many men’s college basketball players you can name off the top of your head, then ask the same about women’s college basketball.

Clark started going viral on social media a couple of years ago when she started pulling up from the Iowa Hawkeyes logo and draining deep threes. Her shooting skills and passionate playing style have been compared to the likes of Steph Curry, and Clark will certainly lead the women’s game into an even better place for year’s to come. There’s just one problem.

She does complain to referees a lot during the game.

That’s not a “dealbreaker” by any means, but it is unfortunate. And she’s not the first super star to plead for each and every little detail of the game (*cough* LeBron James *cough*). He’s been doing it for a long time, and he’s certainly gained some non-fans because of it.

Caitlin Clark is heading in that direction for some people. Even her own dad was telling her to stop complaining during Iowa’s first round game:

Clark’s excessive interactions with referees has become such a hot topic, it’s even transcended to the world of professional basketball.

During a game between the Boston Celtics and the Atlanta Hawks (in which the Celtics blew a 30 point lead), an announcer for Atlanta made a not-so-friendly reference to Caitlyn Clark when Celtics star Jayson Tatum kept complaining to the referees:

“Boy, Jayson Tatum does a lot of complaining. Who does he think he is, Caitlin Clark?”

Would you look at that? Caitlin Clark is really making an impact on the game of basketball…
