Indiana Fever center Aliyah Boston opened up about Caitlin Clark’s spotlight.

Headlined by Indiana Fever star Caitlin Clark, the 2024 WNBA Draft class has helped exponentially grow the league. This can be seen in attendance, viewership, and several other metrics that detail just how significant the WNBA’s growth has been this season.

While this comes with a lot of benefits for the players in the form of exposure and opportunities, it can also come with added pressure. This could be especially true for Fever players, as Clark’s spotlight is unlike anything the league has seen.

When asked about this on X (formerly known as Twitter), Fever center Aliyah Boston downplayed the idea that Clark’s attention has created any added pressure:

“I don’t think it’s added pressure. We are used to playing with eyes on us in college so it doesn’t change because we are in the W”.

This is a great mindset to have, because while Boston and her teammates certainly have more total eyes on them now than they had previously, the attention itself is not something they are unprepared for.

While so much emphasis gets placed on the outside noise surrounding Clark and her team, Boston spoke highly of the on-court dynamic with one of the league’s best facilitators:

“Any type of ballscreen action because she always makes a great read”.

Named to the All-Star team with Clark, Boston has put together a fantastic sophomore campaign, averaging 13.3 PPG and 8.4 RPG in 21 games. For Clark, the star rookie is averaging 16.0 PPG, 7.1 APG, and 5.7 RPG while breaking several league records.

Clark and Boston were the leading All-Star vote getters, as fans wanted to see this exciting duo in Phoenix.

This was a deserving honor for both players, as Clark continues to make history on a nightly basis while Boston’s consistency has been a catalyst to Indiana’s improved play. There is certainly a massive spotlight on the Fever, but their players have handled it well.
