Following Team USA Basketball’s recent exit from the FIBA World Cup, talks have emerged regarding the upcoming 2024 Summer Olympics. Seasoned NBA players, disheartened by their performance in the World Cup, are now contemplating the prospect of striving for Olympic Gold in Paris 2024. This presents a fresh opportunity for them to reclaim their glory on the grand international platform.
Can LeBron James lead Team USA to the Olympics?
Although basketball has become more globally connected, there is a need to consider forming another Dream Team for Paris, as suggested by head coach Steve Kerr. The NBA Central X account tweeted an image featuring all the exceptional American players currently in the league. Athletes such as LeBron James, Chris Paul, and Kevin Durant have already achieved оlympic gold medals. Surprisingly, Stephen Curry has never participated in an оlympic game, despite his remarkable career. While he has previously won two FIBA World Cup championships, various factors prevented him from competing for an оlympic gold medal.
Jayson Tatum finds himself in a star-studded company in a photo that features LeBron James, Jimmy Butler, Devin Booker, Kawhi Leonard, Damian Lillard, Stephen Curry, and Anthony Davis. Imagining a team consisting of these players participating in the 2020 Summer Olympics in Paris is simply thrilling. This imaginative lineup possesses the potential to not only compete but potentially surpass the achievements of previous Olympic gold-medal winning teams. Nevertheless, bringing together such a gathering of superstars for the summer games has always been a difficult endeavor. Yet, one cannot help but wonder if they would consider the idea, especially if approached with an enticing proposal similar to the Netflix documentary “The Last Dance.”
