DUMB and UNJUST: Despite Being Top 4 in the WNBA in 3’s and Assists, Caitlin Clark SNUBBED and Left Off Olympic Team

CBS is reporting that Caitlin Clark, the women’s basketball player in history, is being left off of the Olympic team. 

A bunch of women basketball players who most people don’t even know will be representing the US Olympic team in Paris in 2024.  Caitlin Clark will not be one of them.

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.

In her first 14 games, she has averaged 16.8 points, 5.3 rebounds, 6.3 assists and 1.5 steals per game. She 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:

David Portnoy from Barstool Sports had this to say about the news:

All right. I’m at Saratoga Belmont Day. Looking spectacular, per usual shoes, bang. But this is about Caitlin Clark being left off the Olympic team. How dumb are these women? How dumb? I don’t know who’s making the decision, women’s Olympic Committee, whatever it is. I don’t care if you don’t think Caitlin Clark talent-wise belongs on this team, even though she does put up 37 to 13, like the most points in the history of the league for a rookie.

None of it matters. These women, and I love women, I’m a pro-woman-guy, women-guy. They complain and they cry about equal rights, equal wages, blah, blah, blah, blah. Hey, dummies, for the first time in the history of basketball, you have arguably a player who is the most popular player in the world. You could argue right now, Caitlin Clark is the most talked about, discussed, most popular, most puts asses in the seats, single basketball player in the world. You could argue that. Yeah, you could say maybe LeBron, Luca, whatever you want, but you can argue it. And you leave her off the Olympic team. It’s not only a showcase for her, it’s for the sport and the other WNBA players who are on this team.

How dumb, how brain dead, how idiotic do the people running this thing have to be? It was one thing after another with her. The business part of my brain is like, these people, and maybe it’s guy, whoever it is, I don’t ever want to hear you complain about flying commercial or not getting salaries or this, that. You’re too dumb. You’re too dumb. You have a cash cow. This can bring the Olympic basketball, women’s basketball, be like the number one thing people watch with Caitlin Clark. As it is, I’d rather watch grass grow. I’d rather watch paint dry. I’d rather watch dirt just be moved around because Caitlin Clark is not on the team. If she’s there, it’s appointment TV. You people, whoever did this, honestly, hey, take your brain, put it in a museum, and study it for how dumb you are.

Here are the stats to date in the WNBA this season as of June 8, 2024.  

In total points scored this season, Clark is 7th in the WNBA. Only four women selected to the Olympic team are ahead of Clark (Copper, Stewart, Collier, and Wilson).

In scoring average per game Clark is 13th in the WNBA.  Only 8 girls on the Olympic Team have game averages in scoring better than Clark (Wilson, Copper, Collier, Stewart, Lloyd, Plum, Young and Ionescu).

In three pointers made this season, Clark is second in the WNBA.  No woman on the Olympic team has made more 3’s than Caitlin Clark!

In three pointers made per game this year in the WNBA, Clark is 4th in the league.  Only two women on the Olympic team averaged more 3s made per game than Caitlin Clark (Plum and Taurasi).

In total assists to date this year in the WNBA, Clark is 3rd in the League.  Only one woman on the Olympic team has more assists than Caitlin Clark this year (Thomas).

In assists per game this year in the WNBA, Clark is 4th in the WNBA.  Only two woman on the Olympic team have more assists per game (Thomas and Young).

Despite these numbers and breaking nearly every scoring and assist record imaginable during her illustrious career at Iowa, Caitlin Clark is not on the Olympic team.   This is a travesty.

  1. To be honest, I think the uproar on Caitlin Clark presumed to NOT be on this year’s Olympic team is premature and possibly unwanted by Clark.

    I’m inclined to believe that if I was in Caitlin Clark’s shoes and in:
    my first WNBA season,
    just opened my rookie season with 11 games in 20 with (2) back to backs in there,
    and I just started to get time for some meaningful mid season practices with her new team with a loosing record…
    I don’t think I’d want to be on the Olympic team this summer.

    Maybe Caitlin Clark would rather not be on the Olympic team either this year. I suggest we have a little restraint on the outrage on her behalf… before we even know if it is something she even wants (this year).

  2. This was just mean and hateful. And it’s another proof outstanding that shows that women shouldn’t be in charge of decisions of a business nature or decisions in government. Our decisions are emotional and many times just plain dumb. But you can be sure there’s so much jealousy involved in this that the green in their eyes is showing. It’s ridiculous, hurtful, and just plain hateful.

    • A cool breeze was whispering among the leaves…. you could see the dust being lifted slightly…then swirling a bit, and dropping back onto the dirt pack. Looking up into the sky, taking my eyes off the dirt pack for 3 seconds….. TWIN MINIATURE DUST DEVILS swirled up, merged and became one then just disappeared! Wow! What show. My wife called out the kitchen window…’honey…the Olympic trials are starting!!! You were so excited to watch…so hurry inside! It’s getting a tad windy out there. You know how bad the dust affects your breathing!”
      Yes yes I say to myself….but are you kidding? I missed by 3 seconds the dbl dust twister merge with an instant dump….and I will miss that to watch a buncha losers throw around a ball and try to look entertaining? HA! I found MY sport. When it is the WNBA or the dust pack under the tire swing of my 10 year old girl? I am all over the dust pack! My best friend ( and neighbor-lucky me), saw a triple dust twister which was smacked down by a single raindrop that was the size of a ping pong ball!!!!
      This is gonna be a super great dust pack swirling season.
      WNBA? well…no offense, but can you imagine the combined IQ score of that Olympic Committee? These are the same people that want to tell ME that those years of hard school work, getting an “A” in English with extra-credit for comprehension and grammar, and college level vocabulary ( I was in 9th grade when they started testing for possible college exams, and what areas need improvement). I tested Junior year college for vocabulary. Now a misfit who looks like their 5 year old dressed them for the day’s special “clown day” is telling ME I mis-spoke when I “mis-gendered” this person?
      I will be damned and ASK to go to Hell the day I bend to the will of government to DEMAND of me to use improper grammar when I speak or write, or answer to “THE LAW”. THAT is not law. TYRANNY? Yes. Law? pffft…as my dog would say…pffft

  6. It is a women’s basketball league. Caitlin is winning but should not be playing with women because he was IS a man with all the testosterone and strength benefits that he has. It is ridiculous.
