The super team Basketball that the United States will witness in the Olympic Games :: El Litoral – News – Santa Fe – Argentina
Those coached by Greg Popovich completed the 12-man roster. Most of them are considered superstars in their NBA franchises.
In the middle of defining the NBA playoffs, the NBA team has already set its sights on the upcoming Tokyo 2021 Olympics and has identified, for now, 12 players who will be part of the team.
Not surprisingly for a competition of this caliber and with the United States recently failing at the 2019 World Cup in China, the initial roster is brimming with stars.
While it wouldn’t be the best team coach Greg Popovich could put together, just reading the names generates “fear” for the World Cup.
12 NBAs confirmed for the United States:
Kevin Durant (Brooklyn Nets)
Damian Lillard (Portland Trail Blazers)
Bradley Beal (Washington Wizards)
Jason Tatum (Boston Celtics)
Devin Booker (Phoenix Suns)
Zach Lavigne (Chicago Bulls)
Kevin Love (Cleveland Cavaliers)
Pam Adebayo (Miami Heat)
Draymond Green (Golden State Warriors)
Jrue Holiday (Milwaukee Bucks)
Chris Middleton (Milwaukee Bucks)
Jeremy Grant (Detroit Pistons)
Some of the more significant victims are: LeBron James (the rest), James Harden (the injury), Stephen Curry (the rest) and Chris Paul (the rest).
Rookie Anthony Edwards has been invited to participate in training before the Games, so the definition of the 12 called up will be extended. In addition, part of this group trained on campus in previous years, where the number of attendees was also higher, so the window is open to changes.
