WNBA rook­ie Angel Reese is mak­ing waves on and off the court. After the Chica­go Sky’s win against the New York Lib­er­ty, Reese took to social media, spark­ing dis­cus­sion about play­er pro­mo­tion and league-wide par­i­ty in the WNBA.

Her cryp­tic X (for­mer­ly Twit­ter) post read: “And that’s on get­ting a WIN in a packed are­na not just cause of one play­er on our char­ter flight. #SKYTOWN.” This mes­sage is seen as a sub­tle jab at the media focus on Caitlin Clark and the Indi­ana Fever, along­side the uneven dis­tri­b­u­tion of char­ter flights across the WNBA.

Draft­ed 7th over­all in 2024, Reese has been vocal about her desire for equal resources and media cov­er­age for all teams and play­ers. “It’s not a one-woman show,” she empha­sized in a post-game interview.

“The nar­ra­tive seems to be that just one per­son is chang­ing the game. It’s a team effort – me, Kamil­la [Car­doso], Cameron [Brink], Rick­ea [Jack­son] – there’s so much tal­ent, and it’s about time our col­lec­tive impact is recognized.”

Reese’s com­ments add fuel to the ongo­ing debate about the WNBA’s play­er pro­mo­tion strate­gies. While Caitlin Clark’s impres­sive rook­ie sea­son has unde­ni­ably boost­ed inter­est in the league, Reese advo­cates for ensur­ing oth­er deserv­ing play­ers and teams get their share of the spotlight.

As the WNBA pro­gress­es, the dynam­ic between ris­ing stars like Reese and Clark promis­es to be a cap­ti­vat­ing sto­ry­line. Both play­ers strive to leave their mark on the league and the sport of wom­en’s basketball.
