Team USA basketball camp is underway in Las Vegas in preparation for the upcoming FIBA World Cup Tournament. Some are calling it 'Team Shamrock' because there could be as many as four Boston Celtics on the roster.
Kemba Walker, Marcus Smart, Jayson Tatum and Jaylen Brown are four of the 15 NBA in camp. Head coach Gregg Popovich will keep 12.
