The NBA to Allow its Players to Participate in the 2021 Olympic Games

After a few months of speculations, it has been settled.

According to IOC President Thomas Bach, team owners and the NBPA has agreed on a shortened season in order to allow its players to participate in the 2021 Olympics in Tokyo, Japan.

“The owners of NBA teams have agreed with the players’ association on an early and shortened NBA season starting on Dec. 22,” Bach said in a news conference. “This is what the players want. This is what the movement wants and may National Olympic Committees want very much. It is excellent news.”

The Tokyo Games were originally slated for this past summer, but as you could’ve guessed, the COVID-19 pandemic had different plans. That being said, there is growing confidence that the Olympics will take place next year in what will probably inside of a bubble – at least that’s what I think.

As for Canada Basketball, they will forced to win a last-chance tournament next summer if they hope to keep their Olympics dream alive.
