Magic Johnson advised Caitlin Clark to seek advice from a former NBA star amid her rivalry with Angel Reese. Clark and Reese, rivals since college at Iowa and LSU, saw tensions rise when Reese cheered a teammate’s body check on Clark. On Jimmy Kimmel Live, Johnson suggested Clark consult a former rival of his.

“Let me give Caitlin some advice,” Johnson began. “Call Larry Bird, ask him for advice … Indiana, he’s already there [, and he could give her great advice on how to handle this situation because he went through it himself. 

“So, it would be a perfect situation. He already lived there, grew up in Indiana, on and on and on. I think it would be great.”
