All three of these athletes have this quality, so it’s no surprise that Middleton, Holiday and Booker have been selected for the U.S. Olympic team. Surprisingly, however, they accepted the invitation.
After all, the NBA had a shrinking 722 game season just 1 day after winning the 2020 NBA title on a campus bubble in Los Angeles. The U.S. Olympic team will play the opening game against France on Sunday, followed by games against Iran (July 27) and the Czech Republic (July 31). It gives Middleton, Holiday and Booker three to five days to travel to Tokyo and to prepare for Team USA’s first game, depending on when the NBA Finals end.
