Olympics Rumors

Kyle Kuzma was included in the list of 57 players that were added to the pool for Team USA. The Los Angeles Lakers forward says he would relish the opportunity to represent his country at Tokyo Olympics. However, if the Lakers go all the way to the NBA Finals, he could be ineligible due to the playoffs schedule extending into the Olympics. “That’s a blessing. It’s an extreme honor,” he said. “Hopefully, I get to play. Last year I played a few games for Team USA and was cut short for my injury. Hopefully I have the opportunity to play in the Olympics and kind of not redeem myself but have that full moment with Team USA.”
Dwayne Wade and Carmelo Anthony Open up about being added to the 2004 Olympic team at the last minute. “We really had no clue what we were getting into. We were just happy to be named to the Olympic team and be playing.” …We got the call last minute and just saw ourselves as the roster fillers.” – Dwayne Wade “I think things could have been different but we didn’t have time. We came at the last minute. Me, D-Wade and LeBron. The way that we looked at it was we’re only here for the roster fillers.” – Carmelo Anthony
