When you think of the most loved and hated players in the WNBA, top names like Angel Reese, Chennedy Carter and Caitlin Clark immediately come to mind.

As is the case with other great athletes like Patrick Mahomes, Aaron Rodgers, LeBron James, Connor McDavid and Cristiano Ronaldo, players like Angel Reese and Caitlin Clark will have a giant list of haters to complement their massive fanbases.

In a new study, the BetOnline sportsbook recently used X/Twitter data to determine who the most hated player in the WNBA is. The sportsbook looked for negative-based posts about WNBA players, such as “I hate Angel Reese”.

And according to that data, the Chicago Sky rookie is the most hated player in the WNBA right now by a country mile, with Carter a distant second. Clark rounds out the top three, with Indiana Fever teammates Aliyah Boston and Kelsey Mitchell placing fourth and fifth, respectively.

Angel Reese and Chennedy Carter received widespread criticism when the Sky visited the Fever on June 1. Carter delivered an unnecessary shoulder check on Clark late in the third quarter after making a shot, and Reese was seen celebrating the hit on the sidelines.

Both Reese and Carter refused to apologize, with the former LSU Tigers star stating that she’s fine being labeled as the villain. Reese was fined $1,000 by the WNBA for refusing to make herself available to reporters after that June 1 game.

Angel Reese Is Off To A Strong Start As A Pro

The No. 7 pick of the 2024 WNBA Draft has not disappointed since turning professional, averaging 11.6 points, 9.6 rebounds, 1.9 assists and as many steals per contest through her first 10 games.

Reese had her best game against the Washington Mystics on June 6, racking up 16 points, 11 rebounds, three assists and five steals in a 79-71 victory. Chicago will now aim to improve to 5-6 when they welcome the 10-1 Connecticut Sun on Wednesday evening.
