After suffering a major blow to its pride at the Basketball World Cup, the United States may be looking to build a spectacular “Redeem” team to redeem itself at the 2024 Olympics in Paris.
“The superstars of the National Basketball Association (NBA) are showing interest in competing in the 2024 Paris Olympics. LeBron James, Anthony Davis (Los Angeles Lakers) and Steph Curry (Golden State) are among the leading candidates.”
The U.S. finished last at the recently concluded FIBA Basketball World Cup 2023. They were swept by Germany in the semifinals and Canada in the third- and fourth-place games.
So next year’s Paris Olympics will likely feature a star-studded roster in an effort to restore the tattered pride of American basketball.
After winning the 1992 Barcelona Olympics with its first “Dream Team,” which included NBA stars such as Michael Jordan, Larry Bird and Karl Malone, the U.S. finished with a bronze medal in Athens in 2004 and 카지노사이트 a poor showing at the Basketball World Cup, so it assembled a “Redemption Team” in Beijing in 2008.
James, Kobe Bryant, and other stars led the charge, and it was the start of the U.S.’s fourth consecutive Olympic title before Tokyo.
All eyes will be on Curry and James, two of the NBA’s biggest stars, as they team up for the first time to try to win a fifth straight Olympic title. Unlike James, who has competed in multiple Olympic Games, Curry has never played in an Olympic Games.
