Former Lakers star Pau Gasol has been involved with the WNBA lately, in particular a player he considers to be like his ‘sister' on the New York Liberty: Sabrina Ionescu. The Liberty beat Caitlin Clark and the Indiana Fever by a final score of 91-80 on Saturday.

It was the Liberty's second win of the young season against Clark and the Fever after previously locking down Clark on defense behind the stellar play of Betnijah-Laney Hamilton. Breanna Stewart's incredible turnaround has helped the Liberty in surprising ways lately.

On Saturday, Gasol released a message meant for a Liberty hooper he considers his ‘sister,' as part of a sweet message on social media.

Gasol's Heartfelt Message 

The message was posted to Twitter by the former Los Angeles Laker, during which he gave a shout-out to his “little sister” saying that he loves watching her play. The 26-year-old New York Liberty guard is averaging 14.5 points, seven rebounds and 5.5 assists with one steal so far on the young season for coach Sandy Brondello's team.

Ionescu scored 12 points and added five assists on Saturday while Stewart scored 24 to lead the Liberty. Clark notched 22 points and six rebounds along with eight assists for the Fever, who fell to 0-3 on the season.

Liberty Schedule Continues With Two Home Games 

The Liberty's schedule includes a home matchup with the Seattle Storm on Monday, May 20, followed by another home game against the Chicago Sky three days later.

The Liberty likely won't have the same star power in attendance vs. non-Caitlin Clark related teams, but one thing's for sure: stars like the Lakers legend Gasol will continue to root for them whether in-person or from afar.

Last season's runner-up finish and WNBA Finals loss to the Las Vegas Aces appears to have rallied the troops for Coach Brondello and Ionescu's team. Now, the task will be to keep up the positive momentum in pursuit of what would be the Liberty's first league title in franchise history, as the franchise is the only one left in the league that has never won an WNBA title.
