Team USA is just about ready to get underway for the 2019 FIBA World Cup in China.
Several big-name NBA players have dropped out of participating with the Team USA roster this summer, but it appears that things have solidified as we enter late August.
To that end, we now have confirmation about who Team USA’s captains will be moving forward.
According to Kemba Walker, he and fellow Boston Celtics teammate Marcus Smart will be the captains for the international squad in this year’s World Cup.
This is a point of pride for Celtics fans, and Walker and Smart appear to be two excellent choices as captains of this young Team USA roster.
It’s not going to be easy for Team USA to win the World Cup.
Walker and Smart should provide leadership and calmness for a team that will have many challengers who view them as vulnerable.
