Diana Taurasi pissed quite a few people off with her comments about Caitlin Clark’s adjustment to WNBA, but social media seems to be siding with the veteran after watching the latter’s first couple of games in the pros.

Clark was the No. 1 overall pick by the Indiana Fever last month but is having a difficult start to life in the league, losing both of her opening games.

She scored an impressive 20 points in her first game but added 10 turnovers. Her second game hardly went better, as she could only muster nine points.

Both of her losses so far have been blowouts, and she’s about to play the two teams that just beat her, with games against the New York Liberty and Connecticut Sun coming up.

Taurasi, meanwhile, went viral during the NCAA Tournament after claiming reality was coming for Caitlin Clark and the other rookies in her class.

“There’s levels to this thing,” she told ESPN’s Scott Van Pelt. “That’s just life. We all went through it. You see it on the NBA side, and you’re going to see it on this side.

“You look superhuman playing against some 18 years olds but you’re going to come play with some grown women that have been playing professional basketball for a long time.”

Diana Taurasi Isn’t Looking So Bad Now

Taurasi was labeled a hater and was widely criticized for the above. However, with Clark two games in, folks are switching sides.


“Anybody with an issue with her statement now????,” a fan asked on social media.

Reality is here!

“Oh how the tables turn. New fans need to listen to the vets and the longtime fans next time. Y’all turned the whole world against DT and other vets on a Caitlin Clark hate train narrative just for all of us to be correct,” another gloated.

“They said it was hate. Pros are pros no matter what profession. Of course there will be a learning curve,” said another.

Clark and Taurasi will face off when their teams meet on June 30. The rookie will hope to build up some momentum ahead of their matchup, given that it’s probably the one game she’ll really want bragging rights from.
