The LSU Tigers took home the NCAA Women’s championship, along with a lot of unnecessary clout, thanks to their star Power Forward Angel Reese’s taunts at Iowa’s Caitlyn Clark. Reese was the tournament’s Most Outstanding Player but drew widespread criticism for her gestures. The forward walked up to Clark in the final seconds of the Championship Game and pulled off the famous “You Can’t see me” move coined by WWE superstar John Cena. Reese also pointed at her ring finger, signifying her championship ring.
However, former NBA player and NCAA champion Jalen Rose had an opinion to share in response to Reese’s taunt. The analyst took to his Twitter and uploaded a video asking Reese to give Rapper Tony Yayo his flowers as the latter is considered to be Cena’s inspiration behind the famous “You can’t see me” taunt. Yayo was believed to have introduced the gesture in his song “So Seductive” that released in 2005. However, Cena’s fanbase is among the best in the world and Netizens gave a hearing to Rose for attempting to downplay Cena.
Reese’s gestures drew comments calling her Classless, to which former MVP Shaquille O’Neal gave a fitting one word reply. O’Neal on the other hand called out Sports commentator Keith Olbermann who recently called Reese a “f*g idiot” for making the “You Can’t See Me” gesture to Iowa star Caitlin Clark on Sunday. He tweeted “Shut your d**b ass up leave Angel Reese alone“, in response to Olbermann. LeBron James also came out in support of Reese with a tweet celebrating her victory.
