Stephen Curry and Damian Lillard commit to 2020 USA Olympic squad

“I plan on being a part of that. I plan on playing,” Lillard told during a trip to Syndey, Australia, on a promotional run as an Adidas global ambassador. He responded “definitely” when asked if he wanted to add a gold medal to his trophy cabinet as well.

“For us, it’s not really about what people are saying because we always come and show up,” Lillard said. “It’s almost better that they’re not expecting it to be us, that under-the-radar type of coming in and doing what we got to do.”

Curry echoed Lillard’s statement with a bold one of his own.

“We’re still the best,” Curry told ESPN. “If we get the guys that are supposed to be there, in terms of, you know, representing us in the Olympic stage, and the commitment’s been there, and I think it’ll be there next year.”

Once again, it’s on. Now let’s see who follows their lead.

I like to describe myself as a pen pro. I believe everything begins with the pen. To no fault of its own, this generation has turned in its pen for a keyboard, but the concept remains the same: Write from the heart… Write from the start.
