"Lakers' LeBron James on whether he will play for USA Basketball at 2020 Tokyo Olympics: "[I'll weigh] how my body is feeling...

The 2020 U.S. Olympic men's basketball team roster is beginning to take shape.

Kevin Love and newly acquired Andre Drummond are both finalists for the 2020 U.S. Olympic Men's Basketball Team.

The U.S. men have been the dominant force in Olympic men's basketball collecting a medal in all 18 Olympics in which they have competed, including 15 gold medals, one silver and two bronze medals.

USA Basketball managing director Jerry Colangelo stated to The Associated Press that the selection was made with equity in mind.

Prior to their game against the Phoenix Suns, James, Davis and three other Lakers were named finalists for the 2020 United States Men's Olympic Basketball Team roster.

The Miami Heat has two All-Stars this year in Jimmy Butler and Bam Adebayo but they could end up having two players on Team USA as well.

The panel includes nine members of the 2016 team that won the gold medal in Rio, and seven from the gold-medal-winning squad from London 2012. Durant, who is recovering from a ruptured Achilles, was a star on the USA gold medal-winning teams at the 2012 and 2016 Olympics. But Team USA would roll out the red carpet for James-it's just a matter of whether he wants to put in the commitment, in terms of times and physical wear-and-tear.

Also included in the pool are 15 of the 16 players from the USA who are scheduled to play in Sunday's NBA All-Star Game.

Despite being in Year 17 of his already illustrious career, LeBron James has not shown many signs of decline during the 2019-20 National Basketball Association season.

Also on the list are former Thunder players Russell Westbrook, Kevin Durant, and James Harden. We don't know. So we have the rest of the season to monitor, to watch. The Celtics contingent, however, seemed to be well-liked by everyone involved, including head coach Gregg Popovich who lauded Smart's tenacity and reportedly told Jayson Tatum he could be like Paul George or Kawhi Leonard. "But when we select our 12, they will be 12 who are absolutely in with all fours".
