Caitlin Clark’s Fever teammate Aliyah Boston opens up on ‘added pressure’ from rookie… after brutally shutting her down in press conference


As part of her 4th of July celebrations, Indiana Fever star Aliyah Boston answered hundreds of questions from fans, with plenty of them bringing up her rookie teammate, Caitlin Clark.

One social-media user asked Boston if there was any added pressure in playing in the WNBA with the added eyes that Clark has brought to the league.

Women’s basketball has skyrocketed is popularity over the last year due to the play of Clark, Angel Reese and others.

Boston entered the league as the No 1 overall pick of the Fever the year before Clark and played against the former Iowa star in her final collegiate game at South Carolina.

‘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,’ Boston replied on X.

Boston downplaying any added pressure comes a week after a press conference in Seattle where reporters ignored her for the first few minutes and only wanted to ask Clark questions after a loss to the Storm.

The lack of attention for Boston prompted the rookie sensation to say ‘ask Aliyah a question!’, to which Boston replied ‘No, I’m good!’ emphatically.

Clark reasserted that she wanted someone in the media to ask Boston a question, with someone in the assembled press in Seattle obliging.

Boston’s partnership with Clark was a question asked by many fans, hoping to know any little details of how the pair hope to get the Indiana Fever back into the playoffs.

The Fever are currently a half-game out of a playoff position with the Chicago Sky and the Atlanta Dream right in front of them.

Clark and Boston will team again for Indiana on Saturday, taking on the league-best New York Liberty.
