Love and Basketball: Inside Caitlin Clark and Connor McCaffrey’s Relationship

IOWAS power couple! 

Caitlin Clark and Connor McCaffrey have been dating for we do not know how long, but they are adorable together.

Imagine this they come from the same realm (they both play basketball) and both of them hail from the basketball royalty. 

It might look and sound like a plot from the movies, but for some, it has become a reality.

Around August of last year, Caitlin hard launched her relationship with Connor McCaffrey with a simple Instagram post, HeTexted.com reports.

The basketball player posted a snap and captioned it ‘Best end to summer’ which got her a reply from the other basketball player ‘U CUTIE’ and a heart emoji from Clark.

The post got soooo many comments and Clark replied to some of them, one of them said ‘must be launching szn’ while Caitlin replied ‘stay launching always’.

And two weeks ago Connor posted on Instagram wishing her the best 22nd birthday ever, by captioning it:

“Happy Birthday 22 🤞🏼🤍 Wish I was there to celebrate with you – you deserve the best day ❤️ Golden Bday / T Swift year will be the best yet. With all that you’ve already accomplished, there is so much more in store for you and your special self. I admire you in every way and I love you”

This got him a reply from a Swiftie fan and you might know who that is, Caitlin herself.

She called him out for pretending to be a Taylor Swift fan but she will let that slide since it’s her birthday and he replied by saying that he would become just for her.

Connor stood up for Caitlin

Sheryl Swoopes isn’t exactly thrilled about Caitlin Clark potentially breaking the record for the highest scorer in women’s college basketball history. 

She made it clear that she doesn’t think Iowa’s superstar is deserving of such a title. 

Sherly is a legendary player with four WNBA championships and three MVP titles and is often regarded as one of the top 10 players in the history of the league.

Her basketball skills are truly remarkable, but her understanding of the current era of the sport doesn’t quite match up to her incredible career achievements according to Connor. 

Especially after her comments about his girlfriend questioning whenever she deserves something she worked hard for.

“Just imagine doing an interview and being this misinformed 😂😂😂😂😂 I don’t even understand what she’s trying to say,” McCaffery wrote on X formerly known as Twitter.

Who is Connor McCaffrey?

McCaffrey got his talent from his dad and mom!

Connor’s dad is the head coach of the University of Iowa men’s basketball team, and his mom was a star player at the University of Notre Dame. During his time at the University of Iowa, Connor played both basketball and baseball. 

After finishing college, Connor decided to pursue a career in the NBA. Currently, he works as a team assistant for the Indiana Pacers, helping out with different coaching tasks like scouting and studying game footage. 

Despite his busy schedule, Connor always supports Caitlin’s basketball career and publicly celebrates her accomplishments.

Although Caitlin and Connor have been in a committed relationship for a while. They both seem focused on their own careers and supporting each other’s goals. 

Basketball is a shared passion between them, and their relationship appears to be strong as they navigate their paths in the sports world.
