GOAT Talk: LeBron James, Dick Vitale, Jay Williams, and more sound off on Caitlin Clark
The world of sports had its eyes on the Iowa Hawkeyes and Caitlin Clark last night when she lit it on fire with her all-time performance. The entire universe took note of her performance and had quite a lot to say about it.
Her Elite Eight triple-double made its way to the King himself, LeBron James. One of the greatest basketball players on the planet (we will save how great for another conversation) chiming in about Iowa women’s basketball truly says volumes about what is happening. Kudos from the King is rare and it also shows how the women’s game is seeing its deserved growth.
It didn’t stop with LeBron, though. There was commentary from some of the game’s greats in broadcasting, former college stars, NBA stars, and many more. Caitlin Clark has become a household name in the United States and one of the most recognizable faces in sports right now.
The King chimes in
Haha! But FR She's so COLD!!!!!!! SHEESH
