When the Olympic games hit Rio in 2016, John Wall and DeMarcus Cousins could be parading the opening ceremony with Team USA as member’s of the basketball team. FIBA rejected the 2016 under-23 rule proposal from David Stern and the NBA over the weekend, meaning your dream of seeing Wall and Cousins together again, representing America against the world, is not over yet. Cousins was a near-miss for this year’s Olympic squad and is on his way to being a top three American big man, while Wall will hopefully be one of the league’s premier point guards in four years. That 2016 team could also include guys like Anthony Davis and Michael-Kidd Gilchrist.
1,445 days until the opening ceremony.
