Olympic Games Rumors
Q: Do you expect LeBron James to be playing for USA in the Olympics next year? Colangelo: He is one of the greatest players of all time. If he wants to be on the team, how is he not going to be on the team? It’s really not my call. It’s really his call. If that is still important to him and what he wants to do, I truly believe that’s what he wants, than he will be there.
Colangelo: I understand his disappointment. He’s a great player. For whatever reason, the times he’s been with us he just hasn’t played as well as he’s capable of playing. That happens to be at a position where we are overloaded. There is no question about that. And so that’s not a knock on him. I have a great respect for him as a player and through the course of an NBA season, he shows how great he is. The fact that he wasn’t selected really hurt him. He was extended an invitation, but I don’t think he’s coming.
