LeBron James Could Play In 2020 Tokyo Olympics

"With the Lakers" season being so truncated - at least by LeBron's standards; the organization has missed the postseason for six years running - there was speculation last week that he might fill some of his time by joining Team USA for the FIBA World Cup in China.

"Yeah, that's a possibility", James said. The Lakers were officially eliminated from the playoffs by former Laker D'Angelo Russell and the Brooklyn Nets on March 22. The team shut down James so he could have more time to heal his injured left groin.

It's not just the recovery from injury that makes it a hard time crunch for James, but filming is also expected to begin on his new movie, "Space Jam 2". I'm figuring out now how to get as much as I can out of two months of extra time for training. "We're looking at it in an entirely new way". The film, which is produced by James' SpringHill Entertainment, is scheduled to release in July 2021 - 25 years after the original film starring Michael Jordan was released in 1996.

"I love everything about Pop, obviously", James told The Athletic.

Though he won't be wearing the red-white-and-blue this summer, that doesn't necessarily mean that his worldwide career is over, as James didn't rule out potentially playing for Popovich and Team USA in the 2020 Olympics in Tokyo. "But this is not a good summer for me".

Facebook's Zuckerberg calls for a 'more active' government role in regulating internet
In a column for the Washington Post , Zuckerberg said "a more active role" was needed for governments and regulators. Data portability refers to the ability to move data shared with one service to another service.

And LeBron James' season is finished because of, well, there's simply no reason to play the 33-year-old with the Lakers eliminated from the playoff hunt.

LeBron James won gold medals with USA Basketball at the 2008 and 2012 Olympics. It depends on how I feel.

In 55 games this season, LeBron averaged 27.4 points, 8.5 rebounds, and 8.3 assists.

LeBron's career has largely been major-injury free, which is why it was a bit of a shock to watch him miss 17 games this season after initially straining his groin on Christmas Day.
