Spurs’ Keldon Johnson flexing on everybody at Summer League after Olympic gold
NBA Summer League has kicked off in Las Vegas and NBA players are coming from everywhere to get a glimpse of the new players that are going to be on their squads when the season comes around. San Antonio Spurs young phenom Keldon Johnson made his way to the games and was repping his gold medal from the Tokyo Olympics, with no shame.

Rock that medal! Johnson was named as a replacement after Team USA had to find other guys to take the spots of Bradley Beal and Kevin Love. They landed on JaVale McGee and Johnson, the young Spurs wing who landed with his head coach, Gregg Popovich.
Johnson made his way to Vegas and is showing off his gold, and deservedly so. After Team USA’s early struggles, it looked as if they were going to have a hard time winning the gold–or medaling at all.
But, a late surge and some rust being shaken off were enough for them to win it all.
Johnson is one of the young risers in the NBA, and with the Spurs youth movement in full force after the departures of DeMar DeRozan and Patty Mills, Johnson should play a bigger role this upcoming season in San Antonio.
