Steph Curry, widely recognized as one of the NBA’s most prominent stars, has announced his absence from the United States national team competing in this summer’s World Cup, taking place in Japan, Indonesia, and the Philippines. However, the talented point guard has left the door open for potential participation in the American team at the upcoming Olympic Games in Paris next year.

Notably, the head coach for the national team will be none other than Steve Kerr, who also serves as Curry’s coach at the Golden State Warriors. The elusive Olympic gold medal remains the only accolade missing from Curry’s remarkable career. Curry is set on completing his collection with four NBA championships to his name and past success as a world champion with Team USA in 2010 and 2014.

Curry shared, “He’s already kind of recruiting for next summer. I’m rooting for the guys now who are going to play in the World Cup. I know they’ll represent USA well and take home the gold. I have no idea what the next summer will look like. It obviously is an extra bonus that coach Kerr is leading that charge. I love to play for him any day of the week. We’ll see how it goes come the summer of 2024.

While Curry’s absence from the World Cup may disappoint fans, the possibility of witnessing his impressive skills on the Olympic stage next year brings hope and anticipation. With the combination of Curry’s unmatched talent and coaching expertise, Kerr has the potential to create a formidable force in pursuit of Olympic glory. Fans eagerly await further developments and the potential union of Curry and Kerr in the American national team as they strive to achieve the ultimate success in Paris.
