LeBron James and Steph Curry possibly joining Team USA for 2024 Olympics after devastating loss at FIBA World Cup?

LeBron James has won the Olympic gold medal in the past. Fondly regarded as the NBA GOAT, LeBron has earned wide respect and numerous accolades through his appearances at every basketball competition including the Olympics. His wealth of experience and successful spells in the tournament has sparked speculations among basketball fans about his possible return to Team USA for the 2024 Olympics.

But it’s not just LeBron; Steph Curry, another famous basketball player, also shared his thoughts on playing for Team USA in 2024. The possibility of watching basketball greats teaming up once more for Team USA during the 2024 Olympics has sparked wide speculations among fans.

LeBron James’ cryptic comment on the 2024 Olympics roster suggests possible Team USA participation

LeBron James has recently made a cryptic comment on the photoshopped Team USA Olympics poster, including him and several other superstars. James, Kevin Durant, Devin Booker, Jayson Tatum, Anthony Davis, Jimmy Butler, Stephen Curry, Damian Lillard, and Kawhi Leonard were all featured in the photo.

NBA Central posted the photo on Twitter with a caption that said, “Could we see a last dance with LeBron in the Olympics?”

LeBron James replied to the post with the rolling eyes (👀) emoji, which shows that he may at least be considering an Olympics appearance as a possibility. LeBron created history with Team USA where he won bronze at the 2004 Summer Olympics and gold in 2008 and 2012. But he then opted against playing in 2016 and 2020.

The rumor about LeBron’s return to the Olympics came after the 2023 FIBA World Cup semifinal loss by Team USA to Germany on Friday. This means they will not win the World Cup for a second consecutive campaign. Needless to say, if LeBron’s return would make the US Team stronger.

Steph Curry offers his honest thoughts on joining Team USA for the 2024 Olympics

Even though Steph Curry is enjoying the off-season, he plays golf and even makes a hole-in-one at the American Century Golf Tournament. Curry still has basketball in mind regardless of all the fun he enjoys off the court. He has achieved almost everything he can in the league. He has been a nine-time All-Star, won the MVP award twice, has four NBA championships and one Finals MVP.

But he is yet to win a gold medal in the Olympics. Steph has never had the opportunity to play as part of Team USA. Malika Andrews asked Curry in a recent conversation with him if he plans on playing for Team USA at the 2024 Paris Olympics. Curry replied to Andrews by saying, “That’s the one piece of the resume [Steve Kerr] always likes to joke that I don’t have, so he’s already recruiting for next summer.”

“I’m rooting the guys on in the World Cup this year, I know they will represent the USA well and take him gold. I have no idea what next summer looks like and it’s obviously an extra bonus that coach Kerr is leading that charge. “, he continued.

It was then that Stephen Curry voiced his thoughts about a possible appearance in the 2024 Olympics, “I’d love to play for him any day of the week, so we’ll see how it goes come summer 2024.”
