    LeBron James will no longer participate with Team USA.

    That's disappointing but it's hard to hold anything against him considering how much time he's given to USA Basketball over the past decade. Perhaps he'll feel differently in three years.

    I'll be curious to see if others from his generation follow his lead, though the progression of younger players could render such concerns moot by 2016.

    It looks like Kyrie Irving and Anthony Davis are going to make the team. They impressed Coach K during the final scrimmage.

    Yes, I wish him well for the rest of his NBA career. I think that the 2006 - 2008 superstars are moving on to focus on their NBA career due to their respective age. Early this year, LeBron James and Dwight Howard expressed interest in suiting up for 2016, but given the relative timeline from present to 2016, it is a stretch with a lot of changing mindsets.

    I think the young members of Team USA from 2010 to 2012 will still be called up for 2016, dubbed as Coach K's last dance.

    Chris Paul is open for a 2016 stint with Team USA as Coach K's influence is a huge factor. Paul is a gold medalist in the 2008 Beijing Olympics and the 2012 London Olympics.
