It appears King James has outgrown the U.S. national team.

LeBron James, according to Yahoo! Sports sources, will not play for his country at the 2014 world championship and is "doubtful" to wear his nation's colours at the Rio Olympics.

USA Basketball head Jerry Colangelo confirmed to the website he doesn't expect James at next year's event in Spain.

"LeBron is going to be three years older during the next Olympics. He will have two older boys. He has a lot to endure with his family," the source said. "He played in three Olympics. Everyone that knows LeBron knows it's always based on a decision at that moment.

"But if the moment was today, the answer would be no."
