VIDEO: Things Got Very Awkward When Reporter Decided To Creepily Shoot His Shot At Caitlin Clark During Indiana Fever Introductory Press Conference

Caitlin Clark’s iconic college career with the Iowa Hawkeyes may be over, but her WNBA career is just now beginning after she was selected first overall by the Indiana Fever at the Draft on Monday night in New York City.

Days after being selected as the No. 1 overall pick in the 2024 WNBA Draft by the Fever, Clark was introduced by her new team for the first time.

What should’ve been a celebratory event turned incredibly awkward all because of Indianapolis Star columnist Gregg Doyel.

Gregg Doyel is going insanely viral for all the wrong reasons because of his terribly awkward exchange with Clark at her introductory press conference.

It began with Doyel making the “hands heart” at Caitlin Clark, which is a gesture she made to her family and young fans throughout her college career. It got even creepier and inappropriate from there when he asked Clark if she liked it.

“Hi Caitlin, Gregg Doyel Indy Star,” he started before doing the hand signal.

“You like that?” she responded.

“I like that you’re here,” he said.

“I do it to my family after every game…pretty cool,” Clark noted before things turned truly uncomfortable.

“Do it to me, and we’ll get along just fine,” Doyel suggested.

With the Hawkeyes, Clark enjoyed one of the most remarkable collegiate careers ever. During her four seasons at Iowa, she averaged 28.4 points, 7.1 rebounds, and 8.2 assists per game, leading the program to consecutive visits to the national championship game.

Now, Clark will be tasked with doing the exact thing as a member of the Indiana Fever.

The Indiana Fever needs Caitlin Clark to be the superstar player she was in college to help turn the franchise around.

The team hasn’t qualified for the postseason since 2017 and hasn’t had a winning record since the 2015 season. Clark will now join last season’s No. 1 pick and Rookie of the Year Aliyah Boston to attempt to end the Fever’s seven-year-playoff drought.
