The American basketball team is looking forward to winning their fourth consecutive olympic gold. High-expectatives are set in coach Gregg Popovich to lead US to the same glory Krzyewski did in the last three Games.

“I’m excited to represent the United States in our quest to earn a gold medal in Tokyo.”

A team of 12 selected players is led by now three-time Olympian Kevin Durant, who won Olympic gold both in London and Rio de Janeiro. Other remarkable players will also be playing for the US such as Rio gold awarded Draymond Green and Devin Booker. All three stars feature a huge amount of likes.
