Maybe it’s the water in Rio or simply just needing rest, but LeBron James has made a decision on chasing Olympic gold again. is reporting that James has declined his invitation to lead Team USA, succumbing to the need for rest after leading the Cavaliers to the NBA Finals. 

LeBron James informed USA Basketball that he would not participate in the 2016 Olympics in Rio de Janeiro in August, citing the glut of court time he’s logged through six consecutive trips to the Finals.

James’ agent Rich Paul informed Team USA managing director Jerry Colangelo Thursday of James’ decision.

“I could use the rest,” James told

It was a quiet way of informing USA basketball that he could be done chasing Olympic medals, with James now being 31 and already having won two gold medals (in 2012 and 2008) and a bronze (2004).

James is Team USA’s all-time leading scorer (273 points) and second-leading rebounder (95 rebounds).

Michael Jordan Once Shut Down Bulls' Draft Day Trade of Scottie Pippen for Tracy McGrady

Michael Jordan and Scottie Pippen will be forever joined at the hip, and according to this story from Tracy McGrady, it was MJ who made sure of that.

McGrady, while appearing on ESPN’s “The Jump,” told the story of Jordan nixing a 1997 draft night deal that would have sent Pippen to Toronto and McGrady to play sidekick with His Airness.

The Bulls were coming off a second straight championship, and MJ made the decision to have Scottie around for one last season rather than allow the Bulls to start over fresh.

McGrady entered the NBA straight out of high school after being selected in the 1997 NBA draft with the ninth overall pick in the first round by the Raptors.
