Celtics All-Star Isaiah Thomas emerged as one of the best guards in the NBA last season, but it didn’t earn him an invite to the Team USA training camp in Las Vegas next month. However, there is a chance that IT could still get an invite to tryout for the team that will compete at the Rio Olympics this August, especially with many of his fellow All-Stars withdrawing from the competition this year.
Thomas has put it out there that he’d love to be apart of Team USA, or at least get a tryout. With Chris Paul, John Wall, Stephen Curry and Russell Westbrook all withdrawing that leaves USAB with Damian Lillard, Mike Conley and Kyrie Irving at the position.
I wish I could get a chance to play on the USA team! Looking at the history of it I've never seen a small guard get selected 2 even try out
