    Teresa Weatherspoon has a frontcourt of the future in Chicago after the franchise drafted Kamilla Cardoso at No. 3 and Angel Reese in No. 7.

    “Nobody’s going to get no rebounds on us,” Cardoso said minutes after Reese went off the board.

    She also takes a maybe inadvertent dig at the local New York media saying she’s never been to Chicago, but heard it has some of the best pizza.

  • Angel Reese: “I am excited to play with Kamilla [Cardoso]. I have been playing against her since high school.”

  • Rickea Jackson having two outfits tonight — one for the Orange Carpet and one for her selection — is such a baller move.

    Cameron Brink said she facetimed Steph Curry, her godbrother, about five minutes before the WNBA Draft show started. She also called Seth Curry. “He hung up on me immediately, because that’s Seth, but he called me right back.”

    Fever general manager Lin Dunn told me last summer before the team won the Clark lottery that she would be disappointed if they didn’t make the playoffs in 2024.

    “That’s definitely our goal is to get back to championship habits,” Clark said.

    Indiana last made the postseason in 2016 with Hall of Famer Tamika Catchings. Clark said she vividly remembers Catchings on the broadcast during her freshman year games at Iowa.

    “I was tweaking out,” Clark said. “I couldn’t believe she was calling one of my games.”

    Caitlin Clark is speaking with the media after going No. 1. She said she thinks her passing ability will be what translates to the WNBA and she’s heading to an organization with one of the best post players “in the entire world.” “My point guard eyes just light up at that.”

    Happy draft night from the Brooklyn Academy of Music. So far it’s gone to plan with Caitlin Clark heading to Indiana (to much applause in the event space) and Cameron Brink going to the Los Angeles Sparks. It’s a fitting situation for both in terms of talent as well as geography.
