Suns star Devin Booker said he’d play for Team USA in the Tokyo Olympics no matter how far Phoenix advances in the NBA playoffs.
But he’s 24.
all three have committed to traveling quickly to Japan by private plane, Colangelo said.
That could be a tight turnaround.
The NBA Finals are set to end between July 14 and July 22. The U.S. men’s basketball team is scheduled to play its first game in Japan on July 25.
Both the Suns and Bucks are favored to win their conference finals (though the Hawks are making it hard on Milwaukee).
But it’s cool how Booker, Middleton and Holiday are so committed to playing basketball and representing their country that they’ll make the timeline work.
