Lebron James Won’t be Playing For Team USA Anymore?

Olympics: Basketball-Men's Quarterfinal-USA vs AUS

Well it looks like the end for Lebron playing for Team USA in the 2014 world championships in Spain and is doubtful to participate in the 2016 Olympics in Brazil, a source close to the Miami Heat forward told Yahoo! Sports on Wednesday. The USA Director Executive Director Jerry Colengelo has confirmed that he doesn’t expect Lebron to play next summer and doesn’t plan on asking him either… Ouch!

They feel he would benefit by resting instead of playing. Since winning his second straight title with the Heat last month, James has had a busy summer with trips to China and the Philippines, commercial shoots, his prep basketball camp in Las Vegas, business meetings – and planning for his upcoming wedding. Colangelo proclaimed Kevin Durant as “kind of the face of USA Basketball going forward” to reporters after Wednesday’s minicamp practice. Durant and Kevin Love announced they will play for the U.S. next summer. Colangelo said he expects another “two or four” members from the past Olympics team to play next year. I wonder how Lebron Feels about this????
