USA Basketball has finalized its roster for the 2024 Paris Olympics.

For these Olympic Games, the United States presents a solid team. Superstars like Lebron James, Stephen Curry, Kevin Durant, Jayson Tatum and more come together to try to win gold.

A new era

The United States won the gold medal in 2020; however, many stars, like James and Curry, chose not to play on the team. This is the most comprehensive list the United States has seen in years. The answer comes after finishing in fourth place at the 2023 FIBA ​​Basketball World Cup.

James has not competed in the Olympics for the past 12 years. This will be James’ fourth time on the team, and he is aiming for his third gold medal after winning it in 2008 and 2012. This will be Durant’s fourth time competing for Team USA.

Curry, although he competed for Team USA in the FIBA ​​World Cup, never competed at the Olympic level. Steve Kerr will coach and reunite with Durant.

Complete list

The full list includes Anthony Davis, Anthony Edwards, Devin Booker, Joel Embiid, Jrue Holiday, Bam Adebayo and Tyrese Haliburton. There is still one spot left on the roster, and many are wondering who it might go to. Jimmy Butler, Jaylen Brown and Paul George are all favorites.

Dominance of the United States

The United States is looking to win its fifth consecutive Olympic gold medal. The last time they didn’t reach the gold medal game was 2004; however, it will not be as easy as in previous years. Other countries have caught up with the United States in terms of skills. Many NBA players will compete for their home countries, such as Giannis Antetokounmpo for Greece, Nikola Jokic for Serbia and Shai Gilgeous-Alexander for Canada.

USA Basketball will look to once again show the world that they are the team to beat this summer in Paris.
