I want to win an Oscar, so I’ll say I will give it 4 tries, and then it’s complete.” Kawhi’s sense of humor remains strong, and he looks confident now that he has an opportunity to redeem himself for his absence from last season.

With the 2024 Olympics just around the corner, it is a good time for him to add another significant achievement to his already long list.

Kawhi has been called up for the national team on multiple occasions, once in 2012 and again in 2016, but had to withdraw both times due to injuries. He expressed his desire to participate with Team USA this summer but was unable to do so because of some prior obligations that required more attention. He clearly stated that if asked, he would be happy to offer his services to his national team.
