Howard eyes trip to Rio
By Nick Borges
Dwight Howard was forced to miss the 2012 Olympics in London due to his back surgery and he wants another chance to win a gold medal. That's why he's looking at being in the squad down in Rio for the 2016 Oympics.
"No doubt," Howard told Dave McMenamin of ESPNLosAngeles.com on Thursday.
Team USA will likely have a different coaching staff at that time as Mike Krzyzewski said he has no desire to remain as the head coach. Howard says he has no idea who will take over that position.
"My only concern right now is winning a championship with the Lakers and how we can get better," Howard said. "I can't control what happens in the Olympics."
