Biden Wrongfully Calls WNBA Champion A Coach

President Biden welcomed the back-to-back reigning WNBA champions, the Las Vegas Aces, to the White House on Thursday but made a flub in his speech.

Recently retired Candace Parker was a member of the squad, playing in 18 games during the season.

While she did not play in the playoffs, she still earned her third championship ring as a player.

Parker announced her retirement on April 28 following an illustrious career.

She did not make the trip to the nation’s capital, but Biden made sure to single her out. However, he called her “one of the greatest all-time coaches” in WNBA history. Parker has not coached a game.

“And while she couldn’t be here, I want to acknowledge someone who will be considered one of the greatest all-time coaches, Candace Parker,” Biden said, followed by applause. “She played 16 seasons in the league, two Olympic Gold Medals, two regular season MVPs, and a Final MVP.  And look — and going out on top of the world with her third ring, she announced her retirement from the game.”
