With just over a year left before the 2016 Olympics are to be held, the basketball players and coaches are already getting ready to represent their country. Last time we mentioned that over 40 players would have the chance to get picked for the team, but only 12 would actually get selected.
It seems the USA wants to continue to prove that they are the powerful nation when it comes to this particular sport, especially since they are the driving force in the whole world. They have won a total of 14 gold medals, and would like to continue winning them.
The USA team is currently in Las Vegas, and they are getting ready to participate in their training camp. For those fans that want to see all the elite players in one place can actually watch them training using NBA TV, who will stream the camp live on Tuesday, August 11 at 3 p.m. EST.
Players that you may see at the training camp include:
- Stephen Curry
- LeBron James
- Kevin Durant
- Carmelo Anthony
- Anthony Davis
- DeMarcus Cousins
- Chris Paul
- Blake Griffin
- Paul George
- Russell Westbrook
They won’t be picking the final 12 players that will play on the Olympic team until next summer, right before the games start. So, be sure see which basketball players are looking better in order to predict which your Dream Team should be.
