Constructing a team of players who have never featured in an Olympics with the parameters of eligibilty, age, USA Basketball ties and position, Sports Illustrated’s Ben Golliver projects Lillard as one of three point guards to represent the red, white and blue in Tokyo. Writes Golliver: “After missing out in 2014, Portland’s two-time All-Star was out of consideration for Rio, and then back in, and then out again, citing a foot ailment when all was said and done. While Lillard’s volume three-point shooting is his biggest strength, his familiarity playing on and off the ball would be a nice asset if he shared a roster with both [Stephen] Curry and [John] Wall. Lillard’s off-criticized defense and his redundancy with Curry might lead to some fit questions, but he’s one of the few proven All-Star talents without Olympic experience who will still be under 30 in 2020.”
