USA basketball announces star-studded squad for Paris Olympics

Posted : 16 April 2024

In response to the disappointing fourth-place finish in the last MundoBasket, Steve Kerr's USA basketball team is gearing up for redemption at the upcoming Paris Olympics. As revealed in an ESPN report, Kerr has finalized the squad, assembling a roster packed with superstars like LeBron James and Steph Curry, aiming to secure a fifth consecutive Olympic gold in what is anticipated to be the most challenging and competitive tournament to date.


LeBron James, making his return to the national team after a hiatus since 2012, will lead the star-studded lineup, dubbed as a "dream team" under his guidance. The roster boasts an array of talent, including newcomers like Kevin Durant and Anthony Davis, alongside seasoned veterans like Curry. Additionally, the inclusion of Joel Embiid, who opted to represent the USA over his native Cameroon or France, adds further depth to the formidable squad.


Completing the roster are standout players such as Devin Booker, Anthony Edwards, Jayson Tatum, Jrue Holiday, Bam Adebayo, and Tyrese Halliburton. The final spot on the 12-player roster will be decided after a training camp in July, held in Las Vegas. Notably absent from the current selection are names like Kawhi Leonard, Jimmy Butler, Jaylen Brunson, and Jaylen Brown, reflecting the tough decisions faced by the coaching staff in finalizing the lineup.


The Olympics represent the pinnacle of international basketball, akin to the playoffs in the NBA, where players strive to showcase their talents on the global stage. With a legacy of dominance, the USA aims to maintain its stronghold in basketball, having secured gold in every Olympics since Barcelona 1992, with the exception of Athens 2004. As anticipation builds for the Paris Olympics, the stage is set for an exhilarating display of talent and determination from the world's best players.
