US Olympic Basketball Team Solution.

The NBA players are a disgrace to America and they are probably going to lose again this year. NBA players lose in the Olympics because all they care about is themselves what their next paycheck is coming from. NBA players get paid millions of dollars thats what makes them different from the other Olympic athletes participating. The other Olympic athletes are not millionaires and are probably pretty poor yet they train their whole lives to honor their country by winning the gold medal. The NBA players barely care if they get the medal or not they just want their money. They care more about winning the NBA championship then the gold medal. And yes, Kobe Bryant and Lebron James are playing right now but still the best in the NBA are still not participating. Guys like Shaq, KG, Tim Duncan, Jermaine O’Neal, Paul Pierce, Ray Allen should all be there over guys like Tayshaun Prince, Carlos Boozer. Because after all aren’t they the best in the NBA? I know that they are injured and wanna get ready for the NBA season but if they really loved their country they would go no matter what. The real Olympic athletes will never miss the Olympics they have some honor. Remember Magic Johnson, Larry Bird, Michael Jordan these were the best and they all went to the Olympics. The NBA players have disgraced America. So, my solution is simple stop making NBA players play in the Olympics and instead let College basketball players play instead. It would be a good experience for them to get ready for the NBA. And most importantly they don’t have millions of dollars yet and will play hard to get the attention of NBA scouts. To make this even around the world I think that all NBA players should be banned from the Olympics that means no Yao Ming playing for China, no Manu Ginobili playing for Argentina. Look a college team roster with guys like Demar DeRozan, Brandon Jennings, B.J. Mullens, Tyreke Evans, Greg Monroe don’t look bad at all anyways there going to be future NBA stars.
