The NCAA Women’s National Basketball Championships Angel Reese, and Caitlin Clark
Written by RasMahddy on April 4, 2023
(ReggaeVibeMedia.com) – There’s an old saying that many of you like Dave Portnoy @stoolpresidente who called her a “classless piece of s–t”, Keith Olbermann @KeithOlbermann who called her a “f–king idiot.”, and the rest of the minions that came after Angel Reese may want to learn. It simply goes like this: “What goes around, comes around”. No college degree needed to understand what you do to someone may come right back to you.
For those of us that watch, or actually play sports, we all understand trash talking is a part of sports. Everyone is entitled to their own opinion for sure. At the same time there is a reaction for every action.
First of all straight to the head top of the “f–king idiot” Keith Olbermann @KeithOlbermann straight from your people at ESPN called her “Caitlin Clark: The queen of clap backs 👑” via @Youtube. You and that “classless piece of s–t” Dave Portnoy @stoolpresidente can watch as Caitlin Clark’s teammates share which clap back was most memorable to them.
In the run-up to the NCAA Woman’s Basketball Final it was blatantly clear Clark had established herself as a player known for own style of responsive trash talk described by ESPN as a “clap back”. This is largely due to her “clap backs” at other players, as she broke NCAA Women’s Basketball scoring, and assist records. Before Iowa even made it to the Final Four, her “clap backs” started to overtake Instagram Reels and TikToks. Eventually, other athletes started responding to her John Cena-style “can’t see me” taunt.
It was the NCAA Woman’s Basketball Final that Clark and Iowa got clapped 102-85 by Angel Reese’s LSU Tigers to cap off the 2023 tournament.
After Sunday’s final, a significant portion of the conversation did not center on the tournament producing fresh talent. It was about Clark’s response to Angel Reese’s “clap back” in the closing seconds when the LSU forward threw her “You can’t see me” celebration back at her were Reese pointed to her ring finger as the two were lined up next to each other for a free throw on the court.

This is what sparked off those of the sports world to voice their opinions so here’s one from #RVSports. Trash talk is what it is. Trash talk can get some players off their game, and it can inspire athletes to push even harder. However this effects the two players, and the teams there’s no denying the talent that has been displayed by these women which deserves respect. Your entitled to your opinion but it should be respectful. For those who choose not to show respect, it just reveals their true character.
When the National Player of the Year Caitlin Clark and the Iowa Hawkeyes were cruising to a victory against Louisville in the Final Eight stage of the NCAA women’s basketball championship. With three minutes remaining, one of the Cardinals made the decision to address Clark. Understanding the ground rules of the game, Clark answered appropriately.
“You’re down by 15 points. Shut up.”
For those like Keith Olbermann @KeithOlbermann and Dave Portnoy @stoolpresidente and others who are disrespectful, in the words of the same trash talker your defending “Shut up”.
