Caitlin Clark gives surprising answer about goals with Indiana Fever in first WNBA interview

ESPN reporter Holly Rowe didn’t expect her response.
Caitlin Clark, who was picked first overall by the Indiana Fever, was asked by ESPN’s Holly Rowe what her objective is for her debut season in the WNBA. Rowe couldn’t help but be surprised by Clark’s first-year priorities.
Is Caitlin Clark prepared for the WNBA?
After dominating college basketball at Iowa for four years and approaching the draft as a clear candidate for the first pick, the question for Clark is how her talent will translate to the professional level. Her first interview merely added to the concerns expressed by Diana Taurasi and Sue Bird.

“I think the most important thing is to be myself and have fun. “If I do that, I believe the rest will take care of itself,” Clark replied confidently, but that’s when things became awkward.

“I thought you were going to say win,” Rowe baited the live audience and national television viewers. “But we’ll take that.”


Clark, a determined competitor, gave Rowe a furious look as if to say, “How could you question whether I want to win?”

Anyone can see why the 22-year-old had “fun” on her mind, but it raises doubts about whether the media circus surrounding Clark will help the Fever win games, or if she will be more interested with extending her journey as America’s superstar.

The Indiana Fever selected Clark first overall in the 2024 WNBA Draft, as expected. She joins Aliyah Boston and Kelsey Mitchell, who have already emerged as the top draw for the 2017 WNBA season. 36 of Clark’s 40 games with the Fever will air on national television.

The four-year Iowa standout brings unlimited shooting range, exceptional passing, and an unrivaled aura to the W after smashing the NCAA all-time scoring record and breaking TV viewing records multiple times.
