After failing to medal at the 2023 FIBA World Cup, Team USA is gearing up for redemption at the upcoming Olympics in Paris. The team has reportedly locked in 11 of the 12 players for its roster, with LeBron James and Stephen Curry headlining the star-studded lineup.

Here's a look at the finalized roster so far:

LeBron James (Los Angeles Lakers) - Forward
Stephen Curry (Golden State Warriors) - Guard
Kevin Durant (Phoenix Suns) - Forward
Joel Embiid (Philadelphia 76ers) - Center
Jayson Tatum (Boston Celtics) - Forward
Devin Booker (Phoenix Suns) - Guard
Jrue Holiday (Boston Celtics) - Guard
Anthony Davis (Los Angeles Lakers) - Center
Anthony Edwards (Minnesota Timberwolves) - Guard
Bam Adebayo (Miami Heat) - Center
Tyrese Haliburton (Indiana Pacers)

All players, except for Joel Embiid, have represented Team USA in major international competitions. Several of them, including James, Durant, and Curry, have Olympic gold medals under their belts.

Choosing the final roster was a tough task, with numerous All-Stars expressing their willingness to play. Paul George of the Los Angeles Clippers was among those interested but didn't make the cut this time.

With one spot still open, Team USA is keeping its options open. The extra slot provides flexibility, allowing the team to consider performances during the NBA playoffs and accommodate any potential injuries.

The road to Olympic gold won't be easy, as Team USA faces strong competition. World Cup champions Germany, bronze medalists Canada, and silver medalists Serbia are expected to field formidable teams. Hosts France will also be a force to be reckoned with, boasting a strong core from their 2020 Olympic silver medal squad.

Despite the challenges ahead, Team USA's star-studded roster, led by Coach Steve Kerr and managing director Grant Hill, is poised to compete at the highest level and bring home the gold.
