no they wouldnt lol. the US still had a double digit avg margin of victory over spain over the course of two games. they would get their a.sses handed to them by our jv and freshman squads, as long as they were put together nicely.
The gold medal game wasn't decided till the closing minutes... Imo, I wouldn't be over confident in a 2nd or 3rd squad dominating them... I feel U on constructing the right kind of players to play though...

I thought Ray was 1 of the more classier players in the league, I didn't expect this from him
I still fu*ks with Ray, but he has his moments

1. Saying it was a conspiracy that the Sixers beat the Bucks in the ECF before
2. sh*tting on Rafer Alston, when he played on the bucks.. prolly called for though lol
3. He kinda looked foolish on his David West comments, when he didn't want to play in boston

n*ggas dont understand the fact that they are business men at the end of the day. Companies are making millions of dollars using their brand and they get nothing in return.

1. Is just a player saying what everybody knew already. You guys ahve already let this country and the media brainwash you. These guys are used by this country in a event that earns this world billions. And you guys have an outcry when a player ask for his money? It's like Cuban said before these guys are idiots when they play for free.

Whatever happened to playing for your country, not money? It should be looked at as a privilege to represent your country, not a job.

there´s a whole business behind olympics ,world championships etc
Why shouldnt they get paid ?
All this patriotism talk dont make sense when all this is a business... u think he would be less proud with a check he earned

i never heard that they dont get paid in other countries
These kids are blinded by patriotism. By a country that doesnt give a rats a.ss about ya'll and lies to you everyday.

It's no diff than when a player backs up their organization. When the day that player becomes crippled or retires is just a cast off.

He's right. They are making mad money of the players and the players don't see sh*t. How is that fair?

Ray needs to k!ll that noise.

The exposure you get in the Olympics boosts your stock when you get back to the NBA. It's international exposure and they still give you $25k on top of that.

If Ray was thinking like a business man, he'd shut the fu*k up, get his international fame on and get a bunch of new fans to buy his tired Celtics jersey.

they acting like the nba players don't get comped the whole time that they are there. if you don't like the fact that you're not getting payed from the jersey sales then don't play. its not like addias,nike,any other shoe company are not cutting you a check when your over there

some of you idiots probably aren't aware that host cities generally lose money on the olympics. you think somebody is just lining their pockets and making away like bandits. it costs a sh*t ton of money to put on an event like that.

There's so many people making millions off the Olympics, it only makes sense that the players would want some of that.
Exactly.

The people on the Olympic committees make ridiculous salaries and leave the deficit on the taxpayers. They make all that money off a competition for so called 'pride and honor', yet they don't practice what they preach. Hustle or get hustled is the bottomline





I'd be asking for my cut too if you wanna get rich off my talents, capitalism at its finest People just attacking Wade/Allen because theyre alot more visible than the business people behind the the Olympics

Exactly...the Chinese are in debt for like 40 billion...Montreal JUST paid off their debt. n*ggas don't see the money coming out of people pockets for this sh*t, but expect participants to be laced up with cash with no financial risk. It's elementary logic...n*ggas too stuck on that us v. the man bullsh*t to see how silly, financially, it would be to pay n*ggas to show up at a voluntary stage.

Because you're talking about an event that has a legacy of having willing competitors compete on the biggest stage for NATIONAL glory...not for another paycheck. And then, the winners all the way down to bronze GET a winners check. But n*ggas is complaining because they free travel and once in a lifetime experience ain't accompanied with a check.

i don't know of anybody who wouldn't prefer to get paid vs. doing something for free. where i draw the line is saying you wouldn't participate unless they pay you. i wouldn't want those kind of players representing the country anyway if the motivation isn't enough.

part of the reason the olympics lose money is because of things like the article you posted. the cities create a business plan and a budget and then end up spending 10 times that much and are lucky to break even. it costs upwards of $20 billion to host an olympics.
