The US Men's Basketball Team is Missing Someone

The U.S. Men's Basketball team feels like it is missing someone during the 2016 Olympic Games.  After only beating Australia by 10 points and then narrowly escaping Serbia and France by three last weekend, the men's team certainly does not have the same pieces as they had in the 2012 London games.

The man missing from the equation? The King, LeBron James.  

In London, James averaged 13 points, 6 rebounds, and 6 assists per game.  The U.S. team ended winning gold and scoring an average of 115 points per game.

"Every time I watch 'em, I wish I was out there," James said in an interview with ABC's "Good Morning America" Thursday morning. "I did not retire from Team USA. I just did not play this summer. So I still left the door open."

James also talked about his upbringing in Akron, Ohio and his journey living the America dream.

"I'm similar to these kids in every way, every way, shape or fashion," he said. "I walk the same roads as these kids. I breathe the same air as these kids. You know, I understand what they're going through, growing up in an inner city and having people just -- basically forget them. Like, there's no way they're gonna make it. I had days where I just felt like it was just me and Mom, you know, and no one cared, and there's no way that we're gonna be able to make it outta this.

"I definitely could've been a statistic. I mean, I grew up in a single-parent household. My mother was 16 when she had me. I grew up in the inner city."

James now has a net worth of $77 million dollars according to Forbes.
