Boston Celtics star Jayson Tatum and Team USA will be headed across the wide expanses of the Pacific Ocean soon to make the trip to Japan for the pandemic-delayed 2020 Tokyo Olympics soon. Headed there in order to compete for a Gold medal after a tough start and solid finish to a slate of exhibition games hosted in Las Vegas, Nevada, it is a “dream come true” for the Duke product.

USA Basketball got their act together after dropping their two initial friendlies to the Nigerian and Australian national teams before garnering wins against the Argentinian and Spanish national teams (a rematch with Australia was canceled over COVID concerns).

Let’s take a look at the schedule of Team USA in the 2020 Tokyo Olympics Men’s 5-on-5 competition.
