After Disappointing FIBA World Cup, LeBron James is Recruiting Stars to Revive Team USA in 2024 Paris Olympics

If you’re a basketball fan in America and you’ve been sadly disappointed by the under-performing international competition of Team USA, you’re not alone. One basketball player is, too, and he’s the one who can do something about it. On Monday, The Athletic reported that LeBron James is planning to join Team USA for the 2024 Olympics in Paris. It’s James’ final attempt at a gold medal, and he’s not alone. James is also recruiting some of the NBA’s veteran stars to try and right the sinking ship that’s become USA Basketball.


The list of stars reportedly open to a Team USA reunion include: Steph Curry, Anthony Davis, Chris Paul, Draymond Green, Jayson Tatum, Devin Booker and Kevin Durant. That’s eight veteran superstars who could make a massive impact on the quality and experience of the Team USA roster. And while the FIBA World Cup isn’t always heralded as the truest measure of a nation’s best players, the Olympics certainly are.


All eight players listed above have previously won a gold medal with Team USA. If they all jump aboard, expect more all-stars like Damian Lillard, Jaylen Brown and Jimmy Butler to potentially fill out the roster. Team USA failed to medal (finishing 7th & 4th) in each of the last two FIBA World Cups.
