Dwight Howard Wants To Play For Team USA In 2016 Olympics
After missing the 2012 Olympics, Dwight Howard expressed his interest in playing for Team USA in Rio de Janeiro in 2016.
"No doubt," Howard said when asked if he wants to play for the men's national team in the next Olympiad.
Howard, who will be 30 when the 2016 Olympics arrive, was not able to participate last summer with a back injury but had been invited to be a member of the team.
"I was pissed off," Howard said. "I was mad I couldn't play in the playoffs. I was mad I couldn't play in the Olympics. I was pissed. I was looking forward to going to London. I was looking forward to making a big run in the playoffs last season, so I wasn't too happy about the fact that I had to have surgery and miss a lot of basketball."
