LeBron James hasn’t played for Team USA in more than 10 years, with the 2012 London Olympics being his last at the Olympics, where he won a gold medal. However, the 39-year-old “King” may return to the U.S. team at the Paris Olympics next summer to solve the disaster for the United States, which despite winning the gold medal at the Tokyo 20 Olympics has failed to win two consecutive games at the world championships. A disastrous defeat. cup.
LeBron himself deleted the message with a suggestive eye emoji, in which he responded to a tweet from the NBA Central Twitter account that posted a picture full of the American League’s top stars dressing up Team USA, with “LeBron” written on it. middle.
“Will we see LeBron James’ last dance at the Olympics?” the text read, and the NBA’s all-time scoring leader didn’t hesitate to express it with this emoji.
In an impressive image, the Lakers star was replaced by Jayson Tatum, Kevin Durant, Jimmy Butler, Devin Booker, Kawhi Leonard, Dami Surrounded by Ann Lillard, Stephen Curry and Anthony Davis.
There’s reason to think the U.S. could take this “seriously” and show off its real star lineup in Paris, given that wearing the “B” jerseys is no longer valid, the anger of the World Cup failure, and the fury of the U.S. since the 1992 U.S. Since the team brought NBA stars to Barcelona, they have won 7 of the 8 Olympic gold medals, which is reflected in the presence of stars from the first league to the Olympics.
The background may be similar to what happened at the 2008 Beijing Olympics. At that time, the US team, which only won bronze medals in the 2004 Olympics and the 2006 World Cup, had accumulated a lot of momentum after experiencing so much “humiliation”, and he appeared There is a huge team in the Olympic Games that can be compared with the Dream Team: Kobe Bryant, LeBron himself, Jason Kidd, Dwight Howard, Chris Paul, Dwyane Wade, etc. . The rest is known, as Spain pushed the United States to the limit in an unforgettable final (107-118).
Additionally, there are some stars who have personal motivations for wanting to play in Paris 24, as Stephen Curry missed out on Olympic gold and Kawhi Leonard never played for Team USA despite being plagued by injuries. And he is already 33 years old, so this does not seem to be the most appropriate time to debut. Regardless, LeBron seems willing to take matters into his own hands.
