Article Summary:

With the Olympics just around the corner Team USA has a chance to right the wrongs of last summer and show the rest of the world that it still the country to beat on the Olympic stage. Popovich is taking over for Duke University coach Mike Krzyzewski, who previously led Team USA to three consecutive gold medals.

“Anyone who follows international basketball knows there are many really good players from all around the world, and therefore there are many excellent national teams,” Popovich said. “International basketball has improved so much from the days of the Dream Team. The Olympics in 2020 will be a true competition, and there are many teams that will have a legitimate shot at capturing gold.”

USA Basketball hasn’t lost a game at the Olympics since the 2004 Games, where the team finished with a bronze medal.
