Angel Reese's Chicago Sky Slammed for 'Trashy' Official Response to Beating Caitlin Clark's Indiana Fever

Share

The Chicago Sky had something to say after it eked out a win over the Indiana Fever Sunday night.

In a message with overtones of mockery amid the obtuse framing, the Sky’s official X account irritated those it did not amuse.

“bUt wHy dO ThE ChIcAgO SkY HaTe tHe fEvEr? ThEy pLaY ToO HaRd. tHeY TaLk tOo mUcH. ThEy sHoUlD’Ve lEt tHeM WiN fOr ThE sAkE oF—” *transmission ends* anyways, back to our original programming: WE DON’T CARE BOUT NONE OF THAT. SKY ON TOP,” the post read.

But for many, the message was a childish response.

“Tell me you’re a trashy team with bad sportsmanship without saying so,” one user posted on X.

Is this post a bad look for the Chicago Sky?

Others agreed, calling Chicago the “trashiest organization in the league” while adding, “what an embarrassing post” or commenting “what a clown show.”

The Sky, led by Angel Reese’s 25 points and 16 rebounds, defeated the Fever 88-87 in a highly anticipated rematch on Sunday.

Although Clark had  17 points and 13 assists, she only attempted two shots in the final minutes.

“I’m sure there was an opportunity or two for me to probably attempt another shot there at the end, but I trust my teammates,” Clark said.

“Obviously 13 assists, that means my teammates scored off of 13 of my passes. It’s a really great number so I’m going to give them the ball every time. Give them an opportunity to score. I believe in them,” she said.

Fever coach Christie Sides indicated she might have wanted Clark to be more aggressive in taking a shot.

“I never want her to not be aggressive and take shots,” Sides said in citing an instance near the end of the game where some pundits had wanted Clark to be more aggressive.

Sides explained: “I thought she was going to take it to the rim or pull up right. That would have been a great shot for her and for our team.”

Instead, Clark passed to  Kristy Wallace, who failed to score.


A Note from Our Deputy Managing Editor:

 

I heard a chilling comment the other day: “We don’t even know if an election will be held in 2024.” 

 

That wasn’t said by a conspiracy theorist or a doomsday prophet. No, former U.S. national security advisor Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn said that to the founder of The Western Journal, Floyd Brown.

 

Gen. Flynn’s warning means that the 2024 election is the most important election for every single living American. If we lose this one to the wealthy elites who hate us, hate God, and hate what America stands for, we can only assume that 248 years of American history and the values we hold dear to our hearts may soon vanish.

 

The end game is here, and as Benjamin Franklin said, “We must all hang together, or assuredly we shall all hang separately.”

 

All of this means that without you, it’s over. We have the platform, the journalists, and the experience to fight back hard, but Big Tech is strangling us through advertising blacklists, shadow bans, and algorithms. Did you know that we’ve been blacklisted by 90% of advertisers? Without direct support from you, our readers, we can’t continue the fight.

 

Can we count on your support? It may not seem like much, but a Western Journal Membership can make all the difference in the world because when you support us directly, you cut Big Tech out of the picture. They lose control. 

 

A monthly Western Journal Membership costs less than one coffee and breakfast sandwich each month, and it gets you access to ALL of our content — news, commentary, and premium articles. You’ll experience a radically reduced number of ads, and most importantly you will be vitally supporting the fight for America’s soul in 2024.

 

We are literally counting on you because without our members, The Western Journal would cease to exist. Will you join us in the fight? 

 

Sincerely,

Josh Manning

Deputy Managing Editor
