The last time LeBron James wore the red, white and blue, he was having a gold medal placed around his neck in London. And according to a report in July, it was possibly set to be the last time he represented his country on the basketball court.
However, via NBA.com, LeBron says he's interested in the 2016 games, but wants to see if he's physically fit enought to play first.
"No, I'm not officially in, just yet. But hopefully, I can be healthy enough and on top of my game at that point where I'll be taken."
That's not exactly an emphatic yes, but it's also not a no. And I'm pretty sure -- pretty sure -- that yeah, Coach K would probably select him for the squad.
There's a lot of chatter about LeBron's future for Team USA -- for some reason -- and this isn't the first time he gave this non-committal answer. In May, LeBron expressed interest, but was mostly non-committal.
"First, I've got to make sure I stay healthy," James said. "If I'm fortunate enough to be healthy, I would love to represent my country again. But that's a long time from now, so we'll see."
If LeBron were to make the trip and the U.S. were able to claim gold again, that would give him three gold medals (and a bronze).
