While complementing Iowa's star performer and opening up about what she told Clark at the handshake line, Kim said,  " What did I say to her?

“I said, ‘I sure am glad you’re leaving. Girl, you’re something else. Never seen anything like it."

As reported by Fox Sports, if it turns out to be happening anytime soon, Caitlin could possibly see a major breakout in the 3-point contest for the next All-Star Weekend.

The report hints at a possible 3-point competition happening on the NBA All-Star Weekend in 2025 where Steph Curry and Sabrina Ionescu will take on Warriors' Klay Thompson and Caitlin Clark. 


It was not only in the reports, shortly after the game was over, Sabrina herself quoted about collaborating with Clark. She said, "This was so authentic for the both of us to be here."

"Obviously, very thankful to kind of make this dream that we both had a possibility, and knowing that it's changed the landscape of how people are going to view what we're doing, and we're very excited to see what the future has to hold with more people having the opportunity to do stuff like this," she added.
