With Chris Paul announcing that he isn’t going to play in the upcoming Rio de Janeiro Olympics, reporters asked his good friend and USA Basketball stalwart Carmelo Anthony about whether he would going to follow suit. Via the New York Daily News:

“From a morale standpoint as a player, if you’ve been through the things I’ve been through the past couple of years you want to feel what that success feels like. You want that success,” he said. “So the Olympics for me is great timing.”
