Since the end of the Basketball World Cup, rumors have been rife regarding Team USA. To make matters worse, LeBron James had the misfortune of inviting himself to the party for the next Olympic Games organized in Paris, believing that his participation as well as that of a bunch of other superstars could be beneficial to his country. Therefore the question seriously arises as to Stephen Curry’s interest in the situation. And that could affect his NBA season with the Warriors.
After a disappointing fourth place at the World Cup which has just ended, Team USA could bring out the heavy artillery for the Olympic Games next year. LeBron James, Kevin Durant and even Stephen Curry could join the party in an attempt to win a fifth consecutive title in the competition. Will the United States recreate a Dream Team during the next Olympic getaway? If we are to believe the first rumors, it is very likely. The insider of The Athletic Shams Charaniareports that the Team USA roster that will appear at the Paris Olympic Games in the summer of 2024 risks being filled with future Hall of Famers.

Stephen Curry has never made the Olympics
However, the leader of Golden State Warriors, Stephen Curry, is not necessarily the first name that would come to mind for this type of event due to its lack of consideration for the American selection. Indeed, the Dubs superstar has yet to even represent Team USA at the Olympics, only representing Team USA at the U-19 World Championship in 2007 and the 2010 and 2014 World Cups, two tournaments that ended with a gold medal for the Americans.
Curry wants to reunite with Team USA
With Steve Kerr currently in the role of head coach of Team USA, this could increase the chances of Curry to represent the Americans next summer at the Olympic Games. Regardless, he seemed interested in participating when discussing the topic with NBA reporter, Marc Steinin January 2023: “ I am beyond excited about the opportunity to do this. Knowing that Coach Kerr is taking the lead and… I played on both of these world championship teams and anyone who has ever been through both never hesitates to mention how different the Olympics are. They all say it’s not even close in terms of atmosphere, atmosphere, rush, adrenaline and all that. I don’t know what the chances are, because you don’t know what’s going to happen, but I would definitely like to experience that at some point. ” dropped The Baby Faced Assassin. In short, at almost 36 years old, it is now or never for him to achieve Olympic Gold, which would further consolidate his legacy in the world of basketball and sport in general. Hoping for the Warriors that this does not prevent Curry from giving his all in the NBA, especially at the end of the season, where injuries are most regular.
