LeBron James announced this summer is not included in the World Basketball Championship, but did not rule out that next year the US team will be at the Olympic Games in Tokyo.
"I really like Gregg Popovich's captain, but this is not the right summer for me," said the Los Angeles Lakers star, who is not traveling to China, for example, because he's filming Space Jam 2. " Olympics depend on how I feel, but I really like the five-ring games. "
The 34-year-old basketball team confirmed last year's patience with the Californian team, but their first season failed well as the Lakers were sixth behind the NBA playoffs. For the rest of the regular season, James is no longer on track to hurt his cannon damage and be full of next season.
So far James has been involved in three Olympics: he was a gold medalist at the 2008 Beijing Games and London in 2012 and won a bronze medal in 2004 in Athens. (MTI)
