LeBron James to skip Rio Olympics


After obtaining what could be considered the biggest piece missing from his career list of achievements, basketball star LeBron James has decided to not compete in the 2016 Olympics in Rio de Janeiro, according to Cleveland.com.

James, 31, capped off an unprecedented comeback in the NBA Finals earlier this week, winning three straight, including a game 7 on the road to take the Larry O’Brien Trophy back to his home state of Ohio.

James told the paper he plans to use the time for rest.

James has already won two gold medals and now has three NBA championships.
