With the NBA Season over, doesn't mean Hoops Talk is over because now the focus turns to Tokyo. The 2020 Olympics is here and both the men and women's USA basketball teams are looking for Gold Medal yet again. On the women's side, going for a seventh straight Gold Medal is the journey. With Dawn Stanley coaching, Sue Bird and Diana Taursai leading the team, the USA Women's are primed and ready for number seven. On the men's side however, there are some questions going into Tokyo.
