The Tokyo Olympics are nearing. Team USA men's basketball team are already preparing for the tournament. Nine NBA star players already practicing for the team with three are still playing in the NBA Finals.

LeBron James won't be part of Team USA men's basketball team for Tokyo Olympics but the Lakers' forward still wishes the team a 'good luck' for their upcoming tournament on July 24 in Tokyo, Japan.

James has already skipped two Olympic tournament. One in Rio in 2016 and this time the 2020 Tokyo Olympics. He is already 36 years old and will turn 37 on December. The 2012 London Olympics might be the last Olympic tournament that he played for Team USA. Nevertheless, he has already two Olympic gold medal.

The men's basketball tournament will begin on July 24. Iran and Czech Republic will battle in the first day, while USA Basketball will begin its campaign on July 25 against Rudy Gobert's France. The USA will then play again on July 28 against Iran and July 31 against Tomas Satoransky's Czech Republic.

With or without James, Team USA are always the favorite to to win it all. But Luka Doncic's Slovenia, the Gasol brothers' Spain, Patty Mills' Australia and Rudy Gobert's France will surely put a good fight for it.
