French Basketball Federation president slams Embiid’s choice of U.S. team for Olympics

Jean-Pierre Siutat, president of the French Basketball Federation, has slammed NBA star Joel Embiid for choosing to represent the U.S. over his native France at the 2024 Summer Olympics.

Embiid was born in Cameroon, but he received French citizenship in 2014 and U.S. citizenship in 2019. He could have chosen to represent any of those three countries at the Olympics.

In an interview, Siutad said, “Embiid’s choice of Team USA for the Olympics is a great loss for French basketball. He is a great player and we wanted him to represent France in the Olympics. But it’s his choice and we respect his decision.”

Siutad also said that France will play in the Olympics without Embiid. He said, “We have a very strong team and we are confident of doing well in the Olympics even without Embiid.”

Embiid had previously said he wanted to represent France in the Olympics, but he ultimately chose to represent the United States. He said he wanted to win the gold medal with Team USA.

Embiid’s choice sparked controversy in the French basketball community. Some criticized him for choosing Team USA, while others said they respected his decision.
