LeBron, are you going to the 2024 Paris Olympics? Paul Pierce “It’s gonna be his last Olympics…”
Former NBA star Paul Pierce appeared on Ticket & The Truth podcast on the 16th (Korea Standard Time) and mentioned LeBron James and the U.S. national basketball team. James expressed his opinion that he will compete in the 2024 Paris Olympics.
James last played for the U.S. national team in the 2012 London Olympics. As a member of the United States national team, he won a bronze medal at the 2004 Athens Olympics and won gold medals in both 2008 and 2012. He also competed at the 2006 World Championships and the FIBA America Championships, averaging 13.3 points, 3.9 rebounds, and 3.8 assists in 43 games organized by the FIBA.
However, he has not worn a U.S. national team uniform since then. He did not participate in the 2016 Rio Olympics and the 2021 Tokyo Olympics. Nevertheless, Pierce insisted that James would go to the Paris Olympics. 토토사이트
Pierce said, “I really think James will go to the Paris Olympics. This will be his last Olympics. I think Stephen Curry will also go to the Olympics.”
James will be 38 years old this year and 39 years old in 2024 when the Paris Olympics are held. Pierce expected James to compete in the Paris Olympics because it was his last chance to represent the United States before he turned 40.
Meanwhile, Curry, mentioned by Pierce, mentioned the possibility of joining the U.S. national team led by head coach Steve Kerr in an interview with local media ESPN in July.
Curry said at the time, “I don’t know what will happen next summer. The fact that Kerr will also be the coach at the Paris Olympics can certainly have a positive effect on joining the national team. I like to play for him, so I think we can wait and see what happens in the summer of 2024.”
