   Without taking shots at them or their motivation, I just don't agree that they should be paid.  I actually don't even think NBA players should be participants (for the United States, I realize other countries permit it) in the first place, but that's a separate issue.  



The Olympic games is an opportunity to represent your Country against athletes from other countries in pursuit of Gold, Silver or Bronze medals.  Nobody is forcing athletes to compete (they are invited), and if pursuit of Gold and honor for Country are not enough, I respect that, but then don't go.  




Yes, that may (probably will) mean that the United States is not guaranteed a gold (doesn't bother me) but if winning comes at a price, I say no-thank you.  I fully understand that the host city, NIKE and the like make money off the athletes.  I don't agree that "entitles" NBA players to be paid above, whatever any of the other athletes are receiving.
