RIO DE JANEIRO – Carmelo Anthony says his U.S. 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 in an opener on Saturday.
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.
