Paris Olympics on the radar for NBA stars after World Cup disappointment

After Team USA’s dismal performance at the Basketball World Championships, many star players are keen to compete in the Paris Olympics. For Stephen Curry, it would be a first.

SAN FRANCISCO (DPA) – Following NBA star Kevin Durant of the Phoenix Suns, numerous other U.S. professional players have expressed interest in participating in next year’s Olympics in Paris.

For example, at the North American Professional Basketball League’s media day, Stephen Curry of the Golden State Warriors said, “I definitely want to go, it’s one thing I haven’t done yet.”

The head coach for this draft is Steve Kerr, who has guided Curry and the Warriors to four championships. At this summer’s World Cup, most of Team USA’s stars were absent. The U.S. finished fourth after falling to eventual world champions Germany in the semifinals.

Kerr will have more top players to choose from for the Olympics. Among them are All-Stars DeMar DeRozan, Devin Booker, Jaylen Brown, Donovan Mitchell, Khris Middleton and Julius Randle, who announced Monday that they will travel to Paris for the games. Superstar LeBron James also said he would not attend.” James, 38, an Olympic champion in 2008 and 2012, said, “I don’t think it will be too much of a burden. Durant could even become the first men’s basketball player to win a fourth Olympic gold medal in Paris.

Philadelphia 76ers’ Joel Embiid is a special case, as his dual citizenship means he can still decide whether to represent the United States or host France. The center is still flirting with Cameroon, the country of his birth.” My goal is to play in the Olympics,” Embiid emphasized, “and I like all three options.” If Cameroon is able to qualify for the Olympics, “it will be an easy decision.”
