so everybody is okay with all this money being made? If Americans want to win they should have no problems with kicking the extra bread to the players. Otherwise we have amateurs play and lose top dog status
how much money do you think the athletes who are on teams like the water polo, or 4x100 make??? they train year round for atleast four years and they are making pretty much nothing, and these divas who compared themselves to slaves want more money?

i dont matter though because ray ray is just salty his old a.ss never got picked. and the celtics are my fav team, just dont like the fu*king entitlement in sports these days.

Team USA players get a stipend while they're overseas so they can take care of themselves, besides that they're playing for the gold. Paying players to participate is silly to me, especially when players are expendable and participating is optional. I do however think that the country should provide a bonus for winning a medal. People train their entire lives to compete in the Olympics just based on sheer glory and pride. Patriotism and the need to prove that their country is the best and that they are the best is all the motivation I think they need. All of the training, the blood, sweat & tears, is meant to be a showing of patriotism. That's what the Olympics is for, patriotism, not to be some summer job.


I lost respect for Ray here.

yes but they aren't generating the money that the NBA PLAYERS do...

Its all about the percentages...if the NBA players are the attraction why shouldn't they get their cuts unless it an be proven that even if they dont play the faction would still earn the same amount of money.

I'll say again, if they don't like the deal they get then don't go. I'm sure there are others who would love to go and wouldn't need one dime to play. Plus, let's be totally real about it here. All of the best Olympic athletes especially the basketball players make a k!lling on endorsement deals.

Michael Jordan and his Olympic version Jordans are still a hot commodity. Those McDonald's commercials with Dream Team members that got blasted all over TV back then still gets them paid. Those Olympic cups with the players faces on it from the 92 and 96 teams got a lot of guys paid out the a.ss. There are ways for them to make money from a Gold Medal.

I'm not upset at them for trying to get paid because I understand. I just don't feel they should be paid to play in the Olympics.

the majority of people around the world do not give a sh*t about basketball, and basketball is nowhere near the top attraction of the summer olympics

I play overseas and the domestic players over here feel that their pro career is bigger than playing for their countries because if they get injured they don't paid for that season...If this is true for the NBA and contracts are voided for that reason than u gotta pay the players. Bump if you making money off my jersey, shoes, image, pay me damn it!

no offense but this isnt a problem with any other sport represented by Americans at the olympics. The ones complaining, causing drama, and acting like babies are ALWAYS the basketball players. Theyre so fu*king spoiled, it makes me nauseous that theyd pass on representing their country because they want to make money in a summer league or something. Maybe they should go back to when they wore jeans and throwbacks while sitting on the bench injured, makes me wanna puke. I dont even want you on my olympic team ray allen.

like I said before when cats play for their other countries that is as competitive as it gets for them, the NBA players play in a far better league and are far better players for the most part. The foreign dudes who play for other countries want nothing more than to beat the NBA dudes. Recently I see some fire from the USA squad but it will die down again once they win more frequently. Do you know how many athletes the US sends over? These people dont all see easy bucks from endorsements just like the 10th men on the Dream Team won't see anymore than he already did. For cats like Kobe it is your platform to show your greatness but if your Deron Williams you collect a trophy at the risk of your livelihood back home.
1. So the foriegn cat's don't risk thier livelihood either?? Tell that to the SPURS GM lol
2. It isn't 92 anymore, The USA has already lost NUMEROUS times to other countries...
3.Like I said besides them getting rapped on jersey sales, they still make out
4.U can't be a Jamal Hill and only want to pay college and olympic cats that play in black dominated sports.... And nobody has a bulletproof plan to to pay them equaly... And if they do, It's not gonna go threw anyway, so a mute point....

Manu is in his mid 30's, is injury prone, and Argentina has little to no chance of getting the Gold... Not to mention Argentina played somthing like 8 games in 10 days just to qualify lol.... Oberto has a heart condition and is washed up.. Thier gonna try to give it a go in the olympics though.... sh*t like that makes some of our players look bad, anyway u look at it... nobody is holding thsed cats at gunpoint to play anyway
