Basketball Star Caitlin Clark Shows Unexpected Kindness To Her Little Fans

Basketball star Caitlin Clark demonstrated unexpected kindness to a handful of her little fans.

Athletes are a group of people that many children gravitate toward. Children’s eyes stay glued to and remain focused on the screen whenever a game is shown on television. The youngsters are amazed by and in awe of their superior athletic ability and hope to emulate them and their skills on the field or court. 

Given their position, athletes are role models, whether they like it or not, with many eyes watching their every move. What an athlete says and does on and off the court can impact and influence children. That’s why what Indiana Fever star Caitlin Clark did was so noteworthy.

In a clip posted on social media, Caitlin is at a red carpet event. She goes down the carpet as everyone snaps pictures of her every move. But instead of speaking to the media or posing for photos, she does something unexpected.

The young woman ducked under the rope that separated herself from the other people at the event who were trying to get a glimpse of the basketball star. After going underneath the barrier, Caitlin, with a big smile, walked right up to several young women wearing her No. 22 Indiana Fever jersey.

Caitlin begins signing autographs as the young ladies giggle, seemingly unable to believe she would take the time to greet and interact with them. 

Caitlin has scored more points than any person in NCAA basketball history, man or woman. She was the top pick in the WNBA draft and is arguably the most famous athlete on the planet. However, she still took the time to show a little kindness to a group of young women.

That is a moment those little kids will probably remember forever, and it had nothing to do with what Caitlin did on the basketball court.

Ephesians 4:32 “And be kind to one another, full of pity, having forgiveness for one another, even as God in Christ had forgiveness for you.”
