According to Colangelo, general manager of the US men's basketball team, the Los Angeles Lakers superstar LeBron James hopes to participate in the 2021 Tokyo Olympics. But in the current situation, no one can fully promise to fight.
Affected by the new crown epidemic, the Tokyo Olympics have been postponed to 2021. The NBA game this season has also been severely affected by the epidemic, and it is only now in the finals. More importantly, the NBA official still has no definite date for when the NBA game will start in the new season.
According to the NBA president
As the chief steward of the US men's basketball team, Colangelo is doing his best to build a strong enough team. Colangelo said: "I have communicated with NBA Vice President Mark Tatum. He said that various possibilities are already on the table, but the situation is changing every day. Some people say that the NBA will start from December. It’s started. Some people say that I have to wait until January next year. This makes my plan more and more tense. The NBA season usually takes 170 to 171 days to finish. Therefore, the NBA will conflict with the Olympics. In order to make room for the Olympics Time, we also discussed the possibility of suspending the NBA season."
The US men's basketball team has always been a collection of superstars, but usually the list of personnel is always determined at the last minute. Since the 2012 Olympics, LeBron has never represented the US men's basketball team in any competition. Colangelo said: "If the NBA season conflicts with the Olympics, I think we might choose players from 14 non-playoff teams. The International Olympic Committee requires the 12-man roster to be submitted in advance. But under the current situation , I hope they can put this rule aside. In this case, no one can promise anything. Take our coaching staff as an example. Popovich, Cole and Pierce are all NBA coaches. We need to wait until the NBA is determined. Only the start date of the new season can we figure out some things."
