NBA star believes Caitlin Clark could score in the league, talks trans women in female sports

The topic of Caitlin Clark reached the NBA world over the last week with Commissioner Adam Silver weighing in on her popularity and the hard foul she received from a Chicago Sky player.

Comments from Denver Nuggets star Michael Porter Jr. last month about which WNBA player could potentially get a bucket against the men in the WNBA also went viral.

He named Clark.

“She’s cold, bro. I never watched her play until the tournament, and I was actually in shock how good she was,” Porter said on the “Full Send Podcast.” “The way she was and the range she has, she’s like the female Steph Curry.”

“Caitlin is cold. That is the one girl, if she was in an NBA game – on defense she would get cooked, but offensively, she’ll knock down some corner threes or like a swing, swing three. She can shoot from that far.”

“Most women can’t compete with men, and I don’t think men should be able to transition and play with women. That whole conversation just irritates me.”

Porter laughed when he was asked whether Angel Reese could score on him.

The clip of Porter’s comments went viral as Clark was snubbed from the U.S. Olympic roster and while she was on the receiving end of a hard foul from Chennedy Carter.

Clark has since tied the record for most 3-pointers in a single game with seven and became the fastest player to reach 200 points and 50 assists in a WNBA career.
