LeBron's days with Team USA over?
LeBron James might never suit up for Team USA again, according to a report.
Yahoo! Sports reported Wednesday that James will not play for USA Basketball in the 2014 world championships in Spain and is not expected to play for Team USA in the 2016 Olympics in Brazil.
USA Basketball executive director Jerry Colangelo told Yahoo! Sports he doesn't expect James to play in Spain next summer and he doesn't plan to ask the 28-year-old Miami Heat forward.
James has played for Team USA in three Olympics, winning two gold medals and one bronze since 2004.
"LeBron is going to be three years older during the next Olympics. He will have two older boys. He has a lot to endure with his family," a source told Yahoo! Sports. "He played in three Olympics. Everyone that knows LeBron knows it's always based on a decision at that moment. But if the moment was today, the answer would be no."
The report cited the fact James, who played a lot of basketball while leading the Heat to back-to-back NBA championships the past two season, will be three years older by the time the 2016 Olympics come around, along with the fact his children will be three years older by then, as factors in the speculation about James' international future.
Along with James, the report said fellow veteran players Kobe Bryant (34), Dwyane Wade (31), Chris Bosh (29) and Chris Paul (28) also could be cutting back on how much they'll be playing after the NBA season ends.
According to multiple reports, Kevin Durant and Kevin Love have committed to play for Team USA in next year's world championships.
