Steph Curry on his excitement to play in the Olympics

USA Basketball will feature one of the best rosters with their 2024 Olympic team. One of the players who will get to play for the team is Steph Curry. NBA legend Charles Barkley, who had the experience of playing for USA Basketball, asked Curry about his excitement level heading to the summer games.

"I'm beyond excited," Curry said. "I've played in two world championship teams so I've had international experience. I'm excited about this opportunity knowing I have an amazing team... There's no greater experience.

Barkley was part of the iconic 1992 Dream Team. For Curry, he has a chance to win the gold medal this summer as their roster slightly looks like another iteration of the Dream Team.

This summer will be Curry's first time competing on the Olympic stage as he wasn't able to join the previous teams. The Warriors star has the potential to add another piece of hardware to his collection of trophies, medals and awards.
