In an announcement this morning, Hawks sharpshooter Kyle Korver was named to the 28-man pool for the US Men’s National Team for the upcoming 2014-16 series, which will include the 2014 World Championships and likely the 2016 Olympic Games. It’s a rather impressive honor for Korver, as historically the team is made up not only of the elite of elite of US basketball players, but also tends to skew younger. Korver, who turns 33 in March, nevertheless has made himself a deserved candidate for inclusion.

It’s worth mentioning for a minute what a surprise this might have been just a few short years ago. Despite being one of the best perimeter shooters since entering the league in 2003-04, Korver rarely started for most of his career before coming to Atlanta. That’s not particularly common in a young man’s game like professional basketball, and it’s a huge credit to the hard work he’s put in to improve his game. In his 11th season, Korver has the highest true-shooting percentage of his career at 64.6%. To put into perspective how impressive that figure is, consider it is second highest in the NBA amongst players averaging more than 20 minutes a game, trailing only LeBron James at 66.1% (which is ab-surd).

Having the guy with the NBA record of 110 straight games with a made 3 (and counting!) makes a lot of sense for Team USA, as international basketball favors teams that can stroke from long distance to keep the lane from getting clogged.  With 28 players available in the pool, Korver will still have work to do to gain a spot on the team that ends up representing the stars and stripes, but simply being named is excellent recognition for the player he is and the player he has become.

Congrats Kyle!
