MVP LeBron James has decided he will not join this summer’s Team USA for the Olympics in Rio.

James said he needs a rest after a long season with the Cleveland Cavaliers, which ended with him leading the team to the city’s first major sports title in 52 years. He already has two Olympic gold medals, from the 2012 and 2008 games, and a bronze from 2004.

This summer’s USA team has already lost Stephen Curry, Russell Westbrook, James Harden, LaMarcus Aldridge and Chris Paul.
