Caitlin Clark is such a star that the NBA is already planning to get her involved in next year’s All-Star weekend. The league is full prepared to capitalize on her popularity and strike while the iron is hot.

Meanwhile, the 22-year-old is still in college!

Clark, who will be selected first overall by the Indiana Fever in next month’s WNBA Draft, is currently wrapping up her final year at Iowa. The Hawkeyes are back in the Final Four for the second year in a row and will play for a second-straight appearance in the national championship.

She is all that anyone can talk about right now. Even more than men’s March Madness.

In similar nature, the highlight of the 2024 NBA All-Star Weekend involved a female shooter.

Sabrina Ionescu went head-to-head with Steph Curry in a three-point shooting contest. It was awesome. People who did not watch the skills competition, dunk contest or either actual game tuned in to watch them go shot-for-shot.

The NBA is going to take it to the next level next year.

According to Shams Charania, Clark is going to get her shot at the crown. She may also be part of a two-on-two competition that includes the other half of the splash brothers, Klay Thompson.

The NBA obviously knows what it is doing by getting the biggest star in college basketball (men’s or women’s) involved with its exhibition weekend. Last year’s competition was an overwhelming success and Ionescu, a massive brand in her own right, is not the name that Caitlin Clark is — right now, at least.

Having the two biggest stars in the modern era of the WNBA go head-to-head with (arguably) the greatest shooting duo in NBA history is already highly-anticipated must-see television and it has yet to be formally announced!
