Stephen Curry has explained his decision to pass on playing for Team USA at the Tokyo Olympics, saying it “just wasn’t right for me.”

The Golden State Warriors’ point guard was on the U.S.’s gold-medal teams at the 2010 FIBA World Championship and 2014 FIBA World Cup but has never played in the Olympics.

However, this time, Curry decided not to take part in the Olympics and explained his decision.

“Very confident in that decision,” he told reporters at the Edgewood Tahoe Golf Course in Stateline.

“No regrets at all. Obviously being here, playing golf, having fun with my family — that’s a personal thing.

“But there’s always that itch to play and play on the biggest stage, like the Olympics. But it just wasn’t the right thing for me and the right time.”

Last season Curry played in 63 of 72 games, winning his second career scoring title by averaging 32 points per game, along with 5.8 assists and 5.5 rebounds.
