RUMOR: Warriors star Stephen Curry’s true feelings on joining Team USA for Tokyo Olympics
Stephen Curry is still undecided about joining Team USA for the Tokyo Olympics, but the Golden State Warriors star is not closing his doors.
According to Joe Vardon of The Athletic, Curry is pondering on the Olympic idea and is currently torn in half whether he would go or not.
Curry, according to a source, is “50-50” on whether he takes his first crack at Olympic gold. Lillard is believed to have strong interest in playing, though no final decision has been made.
For what it’s worth, there is not much time for Stephen Curry since the Olympics is a little over a month away (starting July 24 until August 8). With that said, the Warriors guard could make his decision sooner rather than later as the preparation heats up.
Team USA can certainly benefit from Curry’s presence, especially since he is fresh off one of the best individual seasons of his career–one highlighted by the scoring title after averaging 32.0 points per game in the 2020-21 campaign.
Curry has also not won an Olympic gold, so it could be a great opportunity for him to check that on his bucket list.
However, some in the Warriors’ front office and fans might be concerned given Curry’s age. He is already 33 years old, and while he showed this past season he is still at his peak, an argument could be made it will be better for him to rest in order to give the Dubs a better chance of competing for the title in 2021-22.
Regardless of what he decides to do, though, we’re pretty sure Steph will get a lot of support.
