Chris Paul reconsiders Olympic role
By ESPN Los Angeles
LAS VEGAS -- Chris Paul has changed his mind and is leaning toward playing in the 2016 Olympics.
The Los Angeles Clippers point guard, who was on the 2008 and 2012 gold medal teams, said he was leaning heavily toward bypassing the 2016 Games -- until Duke's Mike Krzyzewski announced he was returning to coach the team.
"If it had been another coach than Coach K, I was prepared to be done," Paul told ESPN.com.
