LeBron James Wants To Return To Olympics In 2016

Despite already being one of three U.S. players to be on three different Olympic teams, LeBron James is looking to be part of a fourth when the RIo Games roll back around in 2016, according to Sports Illustrated.

James, just a week removed from taking the gold medal home from London, has said that as long as he's healthy and the rules still allow it, he would like to be that veteran presence on one final team.

James says he's "done the math" and he'll be 31 when the next games occur. While that may seem old to some, to put it in perspective, Earvin "Magic" Johnson was 32 when he was a key contributor on the original "Dream Team," with Larry Bird clocking in at a cool 35.

James still hasn't showed the slightest sign of decline despite the tread on his tires, averaging 27.1 points, 7.9 rebounds and 6.2 assists per game in last year's NBA MVP campaign.
