LeBron James says he never played for a "super team". Really?

"For us to be able to add another category to the Olympics, another basketball category, I think it's pretty great", James said.

The International Olympic Committee confirmed a new 3-on-3 basketball competition Friday, as one of five new events slated to take place at the 2020 Tokyo Games.

If you guessed Michael Jordan and Magic Johnson, then you are correct. He retired from Team USA after the London Olympics.

James isn't the only player unenthusiastic about the new Olympic event. Draymond Green believes, however, that the new event gives people outside of the National Basketball Association a chance to compete and win.

"I think it's great for basketball", LeBron said. I stay out of the 1-on-1 matchups during our practice, the 2-on-2 and the 3-on-3s. I'm not quite sure.

While James said fans shouldn't expect to see him in the competition - it's still unclear if the National Basketball Association will even allow its players to compete - he is happy the new hoops tournament was added. "So, probably not. I probably won't be a part of the 3-on-3 matchup that it has to offer". It's unclear exactly who would compose the 3-on-3 teams. I think we all know by this point who really coaches the Cavs - and while Tyronn Lue is drawing up plays after timeouts and giving motivational speeches in the locker room - it's James who is constantly adjusting on the fly and orchestrating the Cleveland offense on the floor.

"But as far as that team, they're going to be here for a while". "The Three Kings" they were dubbed, and they played like National Basketball Association royalty.

The comments don't come as a surprise - chances are James won't be playing full court for Team USA either in 2020, having skipped the 2016 games in Rio after winning consecutive gold medals in 2008 and 2012. "They will definitely want to reward countries that have been doing a lot of 3-on-3 activities". He also has a bronze medal from the 2004 Olympics in Greece. I think that can be like that for 3-on-3.
