OUTRAGEOUS: Caitlin Clark Makes More 3s in WNBA in 24′ than Anyone on Olympic Team, Yet Brittney Griner with 11 Points Total YTD Makes Team

 

It’s clear that the selection of women’s basketball players to the Olympic team is not based on results or merit, it’s based on politics. 

The roster of the 2024 US Women’s Olympic team is out and Caitlin Clark, who broke every record possible in college, and who has made more threes than any other woman in the WNBA this year, is not on the team.  OUTRAGEOUS.

CBS Sports reported (Per The Gateway Pundit):

Indiana Fever rookie Caitlin Clark is expected to be left off the Team USA women’s basketball roster for the upcoming Summer Olympics in Paris, David Eickholt of 247Sports confirms.

USA Today’s Christine Brennan first reported shortly after midnight Saturday.

Clark became the college basketball all-time leading scorer earlier this year, and she is currently putting up some impressive numbers in the WNBA.

… Clark has also already put up two 30-point games — one of them being during the Fever’s 85-83 win over the Washington Mystics in which she reached a career-high seven 3-pointers. With that performance, Clark became the fastest rookie in WNBA history to record 200+ points and 50+ assists.

The list of women on the US basketball roster is reportedly as follows:

Clark has brought more people to women’s basketball than anyone in history.  She owns nearly every women’s NCAA basketball record for scoring and assists.

Clark has more 3-pointers made to date this season in the WNBA than any woman selected to the Olympic team. 

Brittney Griner has played in only one game this year in the WNBA.  She made 11 points.

 

This year, Clark blew away Griner’s record for most points in a career in college.  But this doesn’t matter to the Olympic committee choosing the WNBA team. 

What may be influencing the committee is that Griner may be more famous for being arrested in Russia than for her basketball.

Griner was arrested in Russia after trying to bring an illegal substance into the country.

“The customs inspection of the hand luggage being carried by the US citizen confirmed the presence of vapes with specifically smelling liquid, and an expert determined that the liquid was cannabis oil (hash oil), which is a narcotic substance.”

Griner was eventually set free via a prisoner exchange in December 2022.

 WNBA star Brittney Griner was free Thursday after the Biden administration negotiated her release from a Russian penal colony in exchange for an arms dealer, according to a senior administration official.

President Joe Biden signed off on the trade, which took place in the United Arab Emirates, even though it meant leaving behind Paul Whelan, a U.S. corporate security executive who remains jailed in Russia…

Some on the right attacked Griner as being less deserving of release than Whelan, because she once protested during the playing of the national anthem at WNBA games to raise awareness of racial justice issues.

After that experience, Griner said that the only way she’ll play basketball overseas again is if she’s representing her country in international competition.

This is all politics.

  1. Ayn Rand pined it down.
    It’s not rasist as much as it is marxist.
    Exceptionalism can not be tollerated by communists.

    • I agree!! They love to scream racism. They just prove how racist they can be! I won’t be watching. They chose Ms.? Brittney Griner, who won’t acknowledge the OUR National Anthem, was traded for an ARMS DEALER, left Paul Whelan in jail. Is she/it supposed to now represent OUR COUNTRY, OUR FLAG, OUR ANTHEM???? Besides the fact that she isn’t even half the player that Caitlin Clark is.

  2. Caitlin Clark surely deserves a spot on the team. It’s sad that so many black women, and black players think that because Clark has gotten so much attention that it takes away from their game. The WNBA, despite the many great players, has not been a sport that many watch or even follow. Caitlin has brought the league the attention that they have wanted but they don’t like the way it came. They hate Caitlin because she alone has brought the attendance, the charter flights they have begged for and eventually higher salaries for all. They see Caitlin and blame her for all the things that they have wanted. It’s not Caitlin’s fault, all this woman wanted was to play basketball with the great players in the league and mainly to continue to play the game that she has played ever since she could hold a basketball and do it at the highest degree that she can. I’m afraid for her if they finally ask her to play and she accepts. The team does not want her and I believe that her playing with them will not be the great joy and proud accomplishment that she has envisioned.
