James Harden Commits To Play For Team USA In 2021 Olympics

James Harden- "Not To Brag Or Anything, But I’m Really Good At This Game.”

James Harden is taking his talents to Tokyo this summer as he committed to play for Team USA in the 2021 Olympic Games. The Brooklyn Nets guard comes from having an injury-filled season where he couldn't deliver as expected, resulting in the Nets being eliminated in the second round of the playoffs. 

Now Harden is focused on a different goal: regain the prestige Team USA had in international basketball. After a terrible performance in the 2019 FIBA World Cup, plenty of stars decided to represent the country in the upcoming tournament. 

The Beard joins a list of superstars that includes Nets teammate Kevin Durant, Damian Lillard, Bam Adebayo, Draymond Green, and more. 

This team is already looking great, and more big names could join this group in the next couple of days. Stephen Curry is yet to announce his decision but seeing the quality of players already committed, maybe Steph doesn't need to think much. 

James Harden averaged 24.6 points, 7.9 rebounds, and 10.8 assists per game in his first season with the Nets.
