Caitlin Clark Warns the WNBA in a Silent Manner Before Her Indiana Fever Debut

It's Caitlin Clark and the Indiana Fever's official game week. This Tuesday night, they take on the Connecticut Sun to kick off the 2024 WNBA season.

Having been selected first overall in the 2024 WNBA Draft, Clark has already had a big influence on the league.

Her preseason home debut drew nearly 13,000 spectators, more than 6,000 more than the Fever's average attendance from the previous season. Clearly, she will permanently alter the WNBA. 

However, one of the worries about Clark's rookie season is that everything she does will be scrutinized. What happens if she has a terrible rookie season? Or what if the Fever are among the WNBA's worst teams?

 Clark is confident that her team will support her no matter what occurs this season. 

Clark, who was part of a special Iowa women's basketball team over the past few years, knows what a winning team looks like. It takes a strong culture, and that's what she has in Indiana.  

Clark sent a subtle warning to the rest of the WNBA ahead of her debut on Tuesday, admitting that the culture in Indiana is very "special." In other words, the Fever are going to be tough to beat this season.  

"The culture here is just really special," Clark said. "Everyone wants the best for each other, they have each other's backs." 

Clark will have plenty of ups and downs throughout her WNBA rookie season. But as long as the Fever's culture remains tight, Indiana will be a dangerous team.  

Clark and the Fever begin the 2024 season on Tuesday night vs. the Connecticut Sun.  

Regardless of what happens this season, Clark knows here team has her back.
