After collecting monumental accolades in college basketball, Caitlin Clark now has her eyes set on the WNBA. The NCAA’s all-time record scorer will soon be a worthy addition to the women’s professional league. In addition to this, a recent invitation from Ice Cube to participate in the Big 3 league has added further miles to her popularity.

However, some feel that she doesn’t belong in either and her stature is more suited for the NBA. As surprising and perplexing as it sounds, the idea has been put forth in a very popular talk show.

Chris Broussard & Rob Parker got together in the latest episode of Fox Sports Radio. Discussing Ice Cube’s stint on offering Clark $5 Million to participate in his league, Broussard wanted to know what Parker felt about it. To which he replied, “I thought that was pretty smart on his part. His league needs eyeballs. His league needs to sell tickets.” In addition to this, he also expressed that Clark is too huge for the Big 3 keeping his no disrespect for the entrepreneur in check.

Anyhow, it was what he said moments later that caught the host by surprise. Parker went on and added, “Chris, she’s too big for the WNBA. I am convinced that Caitlin Clark should play for an NBA team, not a WNBA team.” Following this, Chris Broussard found this claim outrageous and called it embarrassing. Still, Parker stuck to his statement and further elaborated, “The NBA right now is so soft as far as physical play. They allow anyone to just take three-point shots. I believe that she could put up threes in this man’s NBA.”

The three-time Grammy winner Tim McGraw recently had an amazing trip to Clark’s hometown Des Moines, Iowa. Apparently, this visit was a part of his Standing Room Only Tour which began on March 21. As it turns out, he had a very special gesture for the homegirl. He donned the iconic No.22 jersey on his jeans along with a cowboy hat. Later, he even shared his visit on his official X account captioned, “When in Iowa…. Had to represent! Big year for @CaitlinClark22 and @IowaWBB.”

The staggering impact that Caitlin Clark will be leaving on college basketball will feature in many upcoming debates. Whether her stature is too big for the WNBA is a discussion that needs further evaluation. We will have to wait to see if this narrative can be tabled in the near future.
