Israeli basketball star Omri Casspi, who plays for the Sacremento Kings, was not chosen to participate in the 2016 Taco Bell Skills Three-Point Challenge on Saturday night, despite his high three-point record this year.

Casspi, who is among the NBA leaders in three-point percentage at 44%, expressed his displeasure with the announcement on social media, and tweeted "Smh" (shaking my head) on Friday.

The announcement was made by the National Basketball Association on Thursday, and will feature Golden State's Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson, among others.
