LeBron wants to play in fourth Olympics

 

LeBron James wants to step inside the Olympic rings a fourth time. Fresh off winning a gold medal in London with the U.S. men’s team, the NBA’s reigning MVP said Sunday that if he’s healthy – and if the rules allow – he would like to play again at the Rio Games in 2016. James said he’s “done the math, and I’ll be 31,” but he’d love the opportunity to represent his country again. James is one of just three players to be on three U.S. Olympic teams. James was honored during the eighth inning of the minor league Akron Aeros’ game for giving back to his hometown. James was given a warm reception – there were a few boos and catcalls – when he walked on the field, but a malfunctioning microphone prevented him from addressing the crowd. – AP
