American men’s basketball is determined to win Olympic gold in 2020 when he summons a $ 1 billion squad with a preliminary list of 44 players.
The American men’s basketball team caused great disappointment at the FIBA World Cup 2019 when it was eliminated from the quarterfinals by France Tel. It is a huge shock because the country of chess is the home of basketball and they own the most prestigious tournament of this game – NBA (American professional league).
Receiving criticism from the home audience, the American basketball federation is determined to “revenge” at the 2020 Olympics. Recently, the American basketball federation has issued a preliminary list of 44 male athletes preparing for the Olympics. In the summer, the tournament they are winning 3 consecutive gold medals with all the players of the “land of flowers”.
The brightest names in the current basketball village such as Lebron James (Lakers), Step Curry (Golden States Warriors), Kawhi Leonard (Clippers), James Harden (Rockets) all participated. Even two stars with long-term injury, Klay Thompson (Golden State Warriors) and Kevin Durant (Nets) are also present on this list, showing how big the determination to win gold of the US Tel.
To imagine the “awful” of this list, look at the total salary of these 44 players in the 2019/20 season in the NBA is $ 1,004,986,273. The number is too terrible for any team in any sport.
Of course, this is only a preliminary list and only 12 players are brought to Japan by the “godfather” Gregg Popovich in the summer. The 71-year-old teacher will also find it difficult when there are so many good players that only choose less than 1/3. Anyway, the American men’s basketball team will be very formidable at the 2020 Olympics.
