Most poignantly, Brunson elaborated on his court testimony that the incident that led to charges of attempted criminal sexual assault, criminal sexual abuse, aggravated battery and domestic battery was part of an ongoing extramarital relationship and emphatically defended his son, who led Stevenson High to its first state championship and recently earned MVP honors as USA Basketball won gold at the FIBA under-19 world championships in Greece. “It has been hell,” Brunson said. “My son is one of the toughest kids I’ve ever seen. If it was me, I would never have been able to handle what he handled, people taunting him. He’s an 18-year-old kid trying to have fun playing basketball and enjoy himself in high school. This senior year was unbelievable for him. He had to be so mentally strong. And he knew deep down this was all lies, but we had to wait to prove that in a court of law. “I let my wife down. I let my family down. I’m supposed to be an example for my kids. I did something morally wrong. But I didn’t do anything criminally wrong.”
Brunson is looking for brighter days ahead, for Jalen at Villanova and for him at points unknown. He is seeking new coaching opportunities. “I’m tired of people putting an 18-year-old kid in my BS,” he said. “This is a kid who doesn’t get paid to play basketball. He doesn’t deserve to be written about in a negative light of his father. A woman lied. We fought it and did it the right way in a court of law. “We raised Jalen the right way. He didn’t react to anything and did a great job handling this with dignity. None of this is going to break him or us.”
