Even as chaos swirls, Caitlin Clark is finding joy in her rookie year

The first month of Caitlin Clark's WNBA career has been filled with checks. Endorsement checks. Reality checks. Heat checks. And a much-discussed hip check.

But what Clark most wants to check off are more wins and more nights like the one she had last week in Washington. It was a performance reminiscent of "The Caitlin Clark Show" that made her a sensation at Iowa - and, importantly, it didn't result in another heated debate that swerved out of her preferred lane.

"I think it's hard for people to remember, I just love playing basketball," Clark said a few hours before she matched her career high with 30 points while leading the Indiana Fever to a win over the Mystics. "This is my job. This is what I'm here for. I'm not here for all the other stuff."
