LeBron says he'd want Magic, Jordan as his 3-on-3 teammates

Given his many talents, they've focused more on what he hasn't done rather than what he has, which is why something as silly as not participating in the NBA Slam Dunk Contest has been used as a point against him.

The addition is the latest move from the International Olympic Committee to bring in street sports, following BMX Freestyle cycling that was confirmed earlier this year.

James' feeling on 3-on-3 basketball seems to be representative of a larger trend across the league as more speculation of potential lineups have taken over the imaginations of NBA fans. It's quite possible National Basketball Association players won't be involved. Rest and age are probably the big factors here-King James will be 35 by the time the 2020 Olympics come around-and there's no reason to be ashamed of that.

OK, we're not buying the faux humility with the "I'm not very good in a 3-on-3 thing" here, LeBron. I'm kidding guys. LeBron has nothing to prove.

Pentagon gets authority to set troop levels in Afghanistan

"I stay out of the one-on-one matchups during our practice, the two-on-twos and the three-on-threes. So probably not. I probably won't be part of the 3-on-3 matchup".

Despite his reluctance to play, James does approve.

"I think it's great for basketball", James is quoted by ESPN. I haven't seen the full layout of how they plan on executing it. are they going to use National Basketball Association guys, are they going to use college guys.

Speaking to media on Sunday ahead of Game 5 of The Finals, LeBron James was asked if he would be interested in playing in the half court for his country, and he chose to politely, and self-deprecatingly decline the potential offer. Alex Kennedy, NBA writer for HoopsHype, said the "general consensus is NBA stars won't compete". "I'd be happy to", she said.
