LeBron James' Team USA career is likely over according to sources close to LeBron as well as hints from Jerry Colangelo.
"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," the source told Y! 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."
Here is Colangelo discussing the state of the team.
A-Rod and the Yankees are clashing yet again. Rodriguez had a doctor go on WFAN and explain that his MRI was clean and there wasn't any reason he couldn't play, but there were two problems. The first is that the doctor he chose to hire was reprimanded for prescribing steroids earlier this year. The second is that getting a second opinion without permission from the team may be a violation of the CBA. So as well as continuing to shovel dirt on his reputation, he might find himself out of a contract. Dope.
Anyway, after all that "sources" close to A-Rod say he thinks the Yankees are against him. Ummm duhhhh!!!!
