Today, Celtic star Tatum, who is preparing for the Olympic Games, was interviewed by the media.
Talking about the reasons for participating in the Olympic Games, Tatum said: “I (suffering from injury) failed to participate in the 2019 FIBA World Cup. It was painful to watch the game. I watched your teammates play and you couldn’t help it, Part of the reason I want to play this time is to try to get that revenge. ”
In the 2019 men’s Basketball World Cup, the United States lost 79-89 to France in the quarter finals and was eliminated from the final four of the world cup.
