With 0 Olympic medals, Stephen Curry revealed that he will do the unthinkable, making fans unsteady
Stephen Curry is currently one of the most popular athletes on the planet. Due to his impressive basketball skills, the player has gained global stardom and is being called the best shooter in the NBA. With his unbelievable three-point shooting accuracy and his crazy ball-handling, Curry is the cornerstone of his team.
However, he is not only a great basketball player, but also an incredible golfer. He even participates in tournaments and has won a couple of them calling golf his ‘second love.’
But the superstar is currently in a dilemma about choosing between basketball and golf. Because the Tokyo Olympics and the Tahoe Golf tournament are clashing, Chef Curry has his priorities straight and chooses his first love, basketball.
Curry makes his choice between basketball and golf
Stephen Curry, known for his basketball skill and love of golf, finds himself at a crossroads when two of his interests collide next summer.
The annual American Century Championship golf event, a family tradition, will take place during the 2024 Summer Olympics in Paris. So when they asked Curry as to what will he be choosing he had a straightforward answer.
“I’d say chasing an Olympic gold medal would be the only reason that I would miss Tahoe,” Curry said. “I don’t know what the schedules look like next summer. I’m kind of staying in the now on that whole process. But I’ve already said I want to play in the Olympics and whatever it requires to prepare and get ready and be a part of the training camp, prelims, and all that. You know Tahoe will always be there but Paris 2024 will not, so it’s an easy decision.”
A gold medal with Team USA is still an important item on Curry’s list, as he has never won one. Despite missing the 2012 Olympics, quitting in 2016, and choosing recuperation over competition in 2020, Curry is determined in his pursuit of an Olympic medal in 2024.
The only possible obstacle in this quest is the short time frame. If Curry’s team reaches the NBA Finals, their campaign may last until June 23rd. Due to that, the 4x NBA champion will have only 33 days before the start of the Paris Olympics.
But how does the USA team look in the Olympics at the moment?
What is the roster of Team USA looking like as of now?
NBA superstars LeBron James, Steph Curry, and Kevin Durant are allegedly forming a star-studded Team USA for the 2024 Olympics in Paris. The only intention they have is to show who is the dominating country in the field of basketball.
Previously, team USA used to win in the Olympics easily, as they’d field the best talent from the NBA. However, in 2016, they experienced increased competition, ending in a fourth-place result at the FIBA World Cup.
LeBron James has stated his desire to play for Team USA, and he is working to build a powerful roster.
Curry and Durant, as well as other elite players like Devin Booker, Anthony Davis, Damian Lillard, Kyrie Irving, and De’Aaron Fox, might join James to complete this team.
Reflecting on their last FIBA World Cup performance, these NBA stars are motivated to restore the supremacy that defined the “Redeem Team” in 2008.
