Kevin Durant chances of winning a title is not over yet, as he should be on board for the Tokyo 2020 Olympics with team USA.
The small forward missed out on the conference finals, after his team Brooklyn Nets were beaten by Milwaukee Bucks.
The Nets star is expected to commit to Team USA for the Tokyo Olympics this summer, according to The Athletic.
With his post season form KD is expected to dominate the Olympics.
The news came after Durant poured in 48 points in a losing effort of Game 7 of the Eastern Conference semifinals. He averaged 34.3 points, 9.3 rebounds and 4.4 assists in 12 playoff games for the Nets before getting eliminated by Milwaukee.
With this development an Olympic gold medal, instead of an NBA championship ring maybe what KD would cling to.
Six other Nets were in the preliminary pool of players for Team USA with the team slated to be picked by the end of this month. Spencer Dinwiddie who has been in Los Angeles rehabbing from a partially torn ACL suffered on Dec. 27, 2020 — is expected to play for Nigeria.
