While Stephen Curry has implied that he could be present at the Paris Olympic Games in 2024, Evan Fournier has pushed a new rant against the organization. To date, the basket has still not found a place to play its Olympic tournament. The negotiations between FIBA and the OCOG are, for the moment, not leading to anything.
” I haven’t finished yet… because I have to go and play for Coach Kerr in 2024 in Paris. It’s not a ‘I’ll go’ huh, that’s what he said! “. Just crowned with a fourth championship title NBA and his first Finals MVP trophy, Stephen Curry lit a first wick in view of the Olympic Games 2024. As recalled Steve Kerrcoach of Golden State Warriors and of United States team, it is the only small lack in its prize list. Seeing the best shooter in history in Paris is a possibility. Provided that FIBA and the Organizing Committee of the Olympic Games find an agreement for the discipline to be played… in Paris.
The basket is still without place for the 2024 Olympics
For months, the subject has been talked about. While the Olympic authorities initially wanted to place the basket tournament at the Parc des Expositions, several players from the France team stepped up to the plate, including Evan Fournier. ” How can we agree to see the basket, the most popular Co sport at the Olympics, being sent to the exhibition center? Ceiling too low, room unsuitable. We can’t let this pass!!! I think I’m dreaming! “, launched the player of Knicks on his account Twitter. Since then, negotiations have stalled. The OCOG offered the Pierre Mauroy stadium in Lille, but FIBA refused out of hand. ” We believe that minimum conditions for our players – not those currently on the table -, as in previous Olympics, should be respected. I am talking about being able to be accommodated in Paris, at the Village, of being located one hour from the Olympic sites, not three, of a site that meets the technical criteria of our discipline, which guarantees a safe floor (reference to the concern for air air conditioning and humidity in hall 6, which could also arise in Lille), during the hottest days of summer », demanded Andreas ZagklisSecretary General of FIBA, in remarks relayed by The Team.

“Steph who wants to come to Paris. But we will explain to him that the Paris 2024 Olympics are not in Paris.
To pay Evan FournierOlympic vice-champion in Tokyo during the Olympic Games 2020 and figurehead of the French team, an unsuitable site would jeopardize the attractiveness of the tournament, especially with regard to players NBA. ” We are not immune that the franchises, when they understand, will put pressure on their players not to go there “, pestered the French winger. After Stephen Curry’s announcement, Evan Fournier put a layer back on his account Twitter : “ Steph who wants to come to Paris. But we will explain to him that the Paris 2024 Olympics are not in Paris because the basket is a “category 2” discipline. Haha well done guys!!! “. This has the merit of being clear… At two years of Olympic Gamestime is running out for FIBA and the OCOG.
