Chris Paul Is Eyeing a Spot on the 2016 Olympic Team

Chris Paul Is Eyeing a Spot on the 2016 Olympic Team

A few days ago, it was reported that LeBron James was probably not going to return to Team USA, which is sad to hear but understandable. We weren't even going to get Chris Paul back up until this weekend, but a crucial return made the point guard reconsider.

Mike Krzyzewsk decided to come back as Team USA's head coach after leading the program to a 62-1 record and two consecutive Olympic gold medals. It was believed for a while that he wouldn't be leading the team to a third straight gold medal, but he changed his mind, and consequently, so has Paul. He told ESPN, "If it had been another coach than Coach K, I was prepared to be done."

Team USA is going to be a problem at the guard if Derrick Rose and Kyrie Irving are on board. Are we looking at three-peat in Rio De Janeiro?
