Angel Reese Defends Controversial Foul on Caitlin Clark as ‘Just Basketball’

Angel Reese Defends Controversial Foul on Caitlin Clark as ‘Just Basketball’

Angel Reese sparked controversy after receiving a flagrant foul for knocking Caitlin Clark to the ground during Sunday afternoon’s game between the Chicago Sky and the Indiana Fever. Despite the hard hit, Reese defended her actions as a legitimate “basketball play” in a post-game interview. The Fever ultimately won the match 91-83.

Reese remained adamant, stating, “It was a basketball play. I can’t control the refs. They obviously affected the game a lot tonight.” She hinted at biased officiating, adding, “I think we went up really strong a lot of times, and we didn’t get a lot of calls. Some people got a special whistle. But we just played as hard as we could.”

Fever coach Christie Sides supported the officials’ decision. “The right call was made in that moment,” she affirmed. “When we don’t make the right call, that’s when there’s a problem. But tonight, they made the right call.” Sides had previously criticized referees for not calling similar hard fouls on Clark in earlier games, referencing an incident involving Chennedy Carter.

“Trump Slams ‘Crooked Joe’ as Biden Bows Out of 2024 Race, Endorses Kamala Harris”

Donald Trump

Donald Trump wasted no time in reacting to Joe Biden’s unexpected decision to drop out of the 2024 Presidential Election. Taking to Truth Social, the former President unleashed a scathing critique, branding Biden unfit to serve and pledging to “remedy the damage he has done very quickly” if he wins. Biden’s announcement, made in a statement on Sunday afternoon, has sent shockwaves through the political landscape.

“Crooked Joe Biden was not fit to run for President, and is certainly not fit to serve – And never was!” Trump wrote. “He only attained the position of President by lies, Fake News, and not leaving his Basement. All those around him, including his Doctor and the Media, knew that he wasn’t capable of being President, and he wasn’t – And now, look what he’s done to our Country, with millions of people coming across our Border, totally unchecked and unvetted, many from prisons, mental institutions, and record numbers of terrorists. We will suffer greatly because of his presidency, but we will remedy the damage he has done very quickly. MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN!”

In a dramatic illustration, a person in Los Angeles was seen reading Biden’s announcement on X (formerly Twitter) in front of a screen displaying his photo. Biden’s decision to withdraw from the reelection race against Trump has thrown the already turbulent 2024 White House race into uncharted territory. Biden also used the moment to endorse Vice President Kamala Harris as the Democratic nominee for the 2024 election.

Reports indicate that Biden’s choice comes amid increasing pressure from key figures within the Democratic Party who have expressed concerns about his age. “While it has been my intention to seek reelection, I believe it is in the best interest of my party and the country for me to stand down and to focus solely on fulfilling my duties as President for the remainder of my term,” Biden wrote in his statement on X. “I will speak to the Nation later this week in more detail about my decision.”
