LeBron James, Carmelo Anthony and Steph Curry were among 30 players selected on Monday as finalists for the USA team that will attempt in Rio de Janeiro to win a third straight gold medal.
The final 12-player roster will be chosen later this summer. Ten of the players named on Monday have played for the Americans in the Olympics before, but Curry isn’t among them. He wasn’t chosen for the team last time 2012, shortly before the NBA’s MVP broke out as one of the game’s biggest superstars.
