So, an interesting topic has been brought up on 950 the fan with alfred and scott...
Everything has been good and fun with the USA BBall. But now with Melo getting hurt, issues are raised.
It's easy for guys to say "oh nba players don't care" blah blah blah like they have in this thread. But what happens if somebody got hurt seriously?
I mean think about this. What if Carmelo was never the same? What if Champ Bailey blew out his knee in a Pro Bowl and was never the same? Same goes for baseball and hockey.
I mean, I think you have to play for your country if you are invited, but there are risks, and it's not just as easy as getting another trophy.
