The Chica­go Sky’s phys­i­cal play against Caitlin Clark and the Indi­ana Fever has sparked out­rage, with Barstool Sports’ Dave Port­noy con­demn­ing their “bru­tal treat­ment” of the WNBA’s No. 1 pick.

In the teams’ sec­ond meet­ing since Chennedy Carter’s hard foul on Clark ear­li­er this month, the Sky con­tin­ued to tar­get the Fever rook­ie. Angel Reese smacked Clark in the head, while team­mates Dana Evans and Carter com­bined to foul and man­han­dle Clark.

Port­noy, a vocal sup­port­er of Clark, took to social media to call out the Sky’s actions, accus­ing them of “doing Chica­go Sky stuff.” The body­check from Carter and her lack of remorse had already ignit­ed con­tro­ver­sy, with accu­sa­tions of racism from both sides.

Clark has aimed to stay above the fray, but made clear she did not want her name used for polit­i­cal agen­das. She also said she did not need Carter to apol­o­gize for the foul, stat­ing “bas­ket­bal­l’s com­pet­i­tive” and “some­times your emo­tions get the best of you.”

The con­tin­ued rough treat­ment of Clark by the Sky has drawn wide­spread crit­i­cism, with fans and pun­dits con­demn­ing the team’s appar­ent tar­get­ing of the WNBA’s ris­ing star. As the rival­ry between the two teams inten­si­fies, the focus remains on the on-court actions and the heat­ed off-court reaction.
