“It’s not going to be nice all the time,” Caitlin Clark responds if Chennedy Carter needs to publicly apologize for hostile play

Chennedy Carter and Caitlin Clark

Caitlin Clark seemed to be over Chennedy Carter‘s harsh incident. When asked if she believed Carter should make a public apology to her before Indiana’s game against Washington Mystics, rookie standout Clark shot the question down. In addition, Clark has been making rounds on the internet for unwanted reasons in the WNBA.

Clark told the reporters that she believes no apology is needed for Carter’s shoulder bump incident. Clark also claimed that it’s a competitive sport and it is not going to be all nice on the court when players play against one another. Interestingly, the “dirty” play sparked a contentious discussion on social media on whether the foul was intentional or just a normal aspect of the WNBA’s aggressiveness against the most well-liked player in the league.

People are competitive...It is what it is, and she’s having a tremendous season. She’s played great basketball, in my eyes probably in first place for Sixth Player of the Year. … There’s no grudges. There’s nothing like that. It’s a sport. It’s competitive. It’s not going to be nice all the time.
In the pre-match press conference, Caitlin Clark told the reporters

On the sports side, the Fever defeated the Mystics 85-83 gratitude to a career-high seven 3-pointers by Clark. She scored 30 points, matching her career high. The Fever have one of the best rookie stand-outs in Clark and will be looking to improve their performance as the season progresses.

Pat McAfee opened up after Caitlin Clark accepted his apology

Pat McAfee recently called Caitlin Clark a “white bi**h” on his self-titled show on ESPN. This saw McAfee enduring a difficult time on social media due to the massive hate he received after his controversial statement. However, McAfee reached out to Clark via Fever’s PR team and apologized to her. Also, he opened up on his show, claiming Clark accepted his apology.

Obviously that's a massive f***-up on my end. I apologize for that. I did reach out to Caitlin Clark through the Fever [public relations team], sent an apology and then got a message back that she said it was all good. No blood. We move forward.
On the Pat McAfee show, Pat McAfee said
And she appreciates us reaching out and apologizing. So that obviously makes me feel a little bit better. But to the people that got p****d off yesterday and offended, I understand. I learned a lot.
Pat McAfee added

On the contrary, Clark has handled all the hate and criticism that she has faced in the WNBA in her debut season with elegance and dignity. Clark is tipped to be one of the best players in the coming years in the WNBA. It remains to be seen how Clark performs in the remainder of the WNBA games for her side this season.
