With hopes of making the NBA Finals dashed, Lakers star LeBron James said he is choosing “toon squad” for the off-season instead of the Olympics.
“The King” will direct his focus on his upcoming cartoon movie, Space Jam 2, instead of representing the U.S.A. at the Olympics.

The Lakers are a first-round fizzle for the NBA playoffs after losing to the Phoenix Suns 113-100 in Game Six at the Staples Center on Thursday. With the Suns beating the Lakers four games to two, the Suns will advance to the finals to meet the Denver Nuggets.
The series loss makes the Lakers the first defending championship team to skulk off into the off-season with a first-round loss since the San Antonio Spurs went down in flames in 2015.
