The 2024 Paris Olympics basketball schedule is quite busy and involves many countries. But US viewers are likely wondering when the Dream Team, which includes Lebron James, Kevin Durant, Steph Curry, and more, will be competing in July and August 2024. The time difference between France and the United States makes watching Team USA live difficult. Fortunately, there are several ways for fans to watch games either online digitally or on various networks like NBC and USA. Here’s when and how to watch Men’s 5×5 basketball for the 2024 Paris Olympics.

But given that the USA has won a gold medal in the event for four straight Olympics (2008, 2012, 2016, and 2020), we expect that the 2024 Dream Team will win it again.
