There’s one large accomplishment missing from the resume of Golden State Warriors superstar guard Stephen Curry — an Olympic gold medal with Team USA basketball. But with a highly-anticipated NBA regular season on the horizon, Curry says he has “no regrets” about opting to skip this summer’s Tokyo games.
Curry as a lot of preparation in mind for the upcoming Warriors campaign, when his Splash Brother, G Klay Thompson returns from two season’s worth of injuries. It’s no surprise he wants to maximize his offseason with individual work.
It must help at least a little that Curry has won gold, just not Olympic gold. He was a member of he 2010 and 2014 U.S. teams that won the FIBA World Cup. Additionally, with how well Curry has performed lately despite turning 33 years old must give him hope he can play in the 2024 Olympic games.
They’ll need a spot-up shooter, right? It will be fun to watch Curry’s career in its twilight, especially because his No. 1 skill — shooting, of course — will remain strong. But for now, we’ll have to wait until October to witness Curry’s brilliance again.
