Team USA boss thinks ‘time is over’ for LeBron James in selection

It smacks of the end of an international career for LeBron James, who will not compete in the Tokyo Olympics with the United States. This is what Team USA manager Jerry Colangelo suggests.

NBA superstar LeBron James will likely no longer play for the United States national team, according to Team USA manager Jerry Colangelo. James, leader of the Los Angeles Lakers, has twice won the Olympic gold medal and was a four-time NBA champion, but he chose not to participate in the last two Olympic tournaments, partly because of the physical requirement imposed by the North American league.

“He gave of his time”

“Time is doing its thing,” Colangelo said of the 36-year-old champion on ESPN on Wednesday. “If you’re a human being, your body is built to last so long depending on your sport, and then it’s a downswing.” “LeBron chose not to compete in the last two Olympics because he is very busy in his life,” he added. “So he gave of his time, he made a contribution that is very much appreciated, but I think his time is over.”

LeBron James was one of the US Olympic teams that triumphed in 2008 and 2012. He was also a member of the 2004 US team that settled for bronze in Athens, playing mostly a reserve role.

The list of twelve American players selected for the Olympic Games in Tokyo includes two players present in 2016, Kevin Durant and Draymond Green, and a new generation of NBA talent. Lebron James, he tried his hand at the 7th art and plays the main role in the animated film “Space Jam: A New Legacy”, which is scheduled for release in mid-July.
