RIO DE JANEIRO (AP) — Carmelo Anthony says his US men’s basketball teammates need to accept responsibility and move on after reports that three players visited a legal brothel in Rio de Janeiro.
“What’s done is done. We have time off and guys did what they did. We accept those responsibilities and move on,” said Anthony, a four-time Olympian and the elder statesmen of the team. The Americans dominated China 119-62.
Anthony was responding to questions about a TMZ report that several players thought they were walking into a spa on their day off Wednesday night, but wound up in a brothel.
Coach Mike Krzyzewski did not address the situation during his postgame news conference.
