LONDON (AP)

This summer is shaping up to be LeBron James' defining moment.

Two years after his infamous decision to broadcast that he was leaving Cleveland threatened to sidetrack his career, James is back on the Olympic stage.

He is two wins from adding to his collection of awards.

If the Americans, who play Argentina in the semifinals on Friday, win their second straight Olympic gold, James will have swept the highest hoops honors possible.

In the past few months, James has been named the NBA regular-season MVP for a third time, the NBA finals MVP and won the elusive championship he needed to validate his place among the greats.

James says the negative backlash he received in the aftermath of ''The Decision'' changed him, but that he's never felt better.
