Caitlin Clark admits where she is weak in the WNBA and where she needs to improve

‘I’ll have to get stronger’ – Caitlin Clark on the adjustment from college to WNBASome are booking bigger venues for when Clark and the Indiana Fever come to town. The Las Vegas Aces and Washington Mystics have moved their games against the Fever to bigger arenas.

The numbers Clark generated in college indicates it’s a smart move.Clark will make her preseason debut on Friday night at Dallas – a game that is already sold out.Caitlin Clark: “I’ll have to get stronger””I think the physicality is probably going to be one of the biggest things for myself. Like, it reminds me of the international game in a way.

The international game is very, very physical. Obviously, the college game, it was physical to an extent, but the people I’m going to be playing in this league are full-grown, very strong women. You’re going to get hit. You’re going to get bumped. People are going to defend you hard when you’re driving the ball to court. And I think just getting used to that physicality of the game will probably be one of the biggest things for myself to overcome is just mentally, but also physically is like, I’ll have to get stronger. Obviously that’s hard to do coming from college to like starting a whole another season.

There’s only so much you can do in the weight room. But, I think as my career kind of unfolds, you know, just getting physically stronger and, you know, being able to hold my own.””It will definitely be an adjustment, but, you know, it is what it is. I think the CBA is up for renegotiation after the season, we can opt out of it, and certainly the new media rights deal will have a big impact on that too. So, at this point of my career, and across the WNBA, it is what it is. I’m sure certainly everybody would say they would love to be flying charter all the time. It would definitely help a lot of problems, but I think the Fever organization has done a really good job of getting out ahead of things; there’s gonna be a lot of security traveling with us. It’s not like we’re the odd man out here. Everybody has to navigate it. And I think it’s gonna, you know, cause some problems, maybe, because the popularity of our league is continuing to grow. Having to navigate travel with that, but at the same time, as you know, that’s a positive thing; you want people to be excited about our game. So, hopefully it changes in the near future, but for now, it’s just what it is.”
