LeBron James, on his relationship with Coach K and USA Basketball, "I think between me, Coach K, CP and Melo we’ve been through it all. We were part of the whole rebuilding of the USA team trying to back to where it was before. I was a part of it in ‘04 with me and Melo, and that was the lowest point for the USA team. Then Coach K and Jerry took over and then we lost the World Championship in ‘06. But we made that three-year commitment in ‘05 and we just tried to keep getting better each and every summer. We were able to win the Worlds in Las Vegas. We were able to win gold in ‘08 and that was a big step for us and four years later, being put in this position once again, we kind of all share the same traits. It’s been a long road for USA Basketball and like I said, I am happy to be in a position where I can say I had something to do with us being back on top." Sulia
