The ‘King’ returns to the USA Basketball team.
The United States national basketball team
which suffered a “no-medal” finish at the FIBA World Cup that ended on Tuesday, will look to redeem itself at next year’s Paris Olympics, 카지노사이트 led by “King” LeBron James (39-LA Lakers) and Steph Curry (35-Golden State).
James and Curry have already announced their intention to join the basketball team for the Paris Olympics before the results of the World Cup, ESPN reported on Nov. 11. The news comes on the heels of Team USA’s poor World Cup showing, and the Paris 2024 squad is already being dubbed “redeem Team 2.
The story of Team USA’s legion of professional basketball stars who sought to restore their honor at the 2008 Beijing Olympics was made into a documentary of the same name on Netflix last year.
Is how the U.S. National Basketball Team called the 2008 Beijing Olympics team, led by Kobe Bryant (1978-2020) and James, an army of National Basketball Association (NBA) superstars who came back to redeem themselves after failing to win gold (bronze) at the 2004 Athens Olympics.
James and Curry
The NBA’s “one-two punch,” had never played together on a national team before. James hasn’t played for the national team since London 2012 (gold medal). Curry has won two World Cup gold medals (2010, 2014) with his national team, but has never played at the Olympics.
“James views the Paris Games as his ‘last dance’ with the national team,” said a USA Basketball official. James, who played alongside fellow NBA star Kevin Durant (35, Phoenix) at the London 2012 Olympics, has reportedly been in talks with Curry and Durant recently about playing one last time with the team.
Curry’s inclusion in the squad was largely due to the fact that Golden State’s head coach, Stephen Kerr, is also the head coach of the USA Basketball National Team.
Gave an affirmative answer last month when asked if he would participate in the Paris Olympics.
“He always teases me that the last thing on your resume is an Olympic gold medal,” Curry told EPSN’s NBA Today last month when asked about playing in Paris, adding, “It’s a bonus for me to have him leading the team.”
In addition to Curry and James, 온라인카지노 Chris Paul (38-Golden State) and Anthony Davis (30-LA Lakers) have announced their intentions to join the team. Jayson Tatum (25-Boston), Devin Booker (27-Phoenix) and Draymond Green (33-Golden State), who were all part of the 2021 Tokyo Olympics gold medal squad, are also hoping to return to the Olympic team next year.
The United States
Is the most decorated FIBA Basketball World Cup team of all time (five), but hasn’t won a title since 2014, when it ended a two-game losing streak. The lack of participation from active NBA stars has been a major reason for the lack of success, with the last two tournaments (2019 in China and 2023 in the Philippines, India, and Indonesia) taking place in Asia, far from the United States.
The United States has swept the gold medals in the last four Olympic Games (Beijing 2008, London 2012, Rio 2016, Tokyo 2021) 카지노사이트존 with NBA stars.
