New York Knicks guard Jalen Brunson has shared his reaction to being left off the Team USA roster for the 2024 Paris Olympics.

Despite his impressive performance throughout the season, including a notable contribution to Team USA in the 2023 FIBA World Cup, Brunson was not included in the final Olympic squad.

Speaking about the snub, Brunson revealed that his focus was primarily on the playoffs and that he hadn’t even looked at the roster list until after the decision had been made.

“I was just focused on playoffs, I didn’t even look at the list,” he said, vie Knicks Videos.

The 12-man Team USA roster features a star-studded lineup, including NBA icons like LeBron James, Stephen Curry, Kevin Durant, and Kawhi Leonard.

Despite not making the cut for the Olympics, Brunson’s regular-season stats speak volumes about his talent and contribution to the Knicks, where he averaged 28.7 points, 3.8 rebounds, and 6.7 assists per game.
