From practice, Dwyane Wade on Olympics: "We're not playing for the dollar but it would be nice if we were to get compensated.''

It's basketball. He's a paid athlete so he should get paid for his work.

Well some Olympic athletes get paid a bonus if they get a medal, me personally wouldn't really care about getting paid for the Olympics but I'm not mad at Wade either for wanting to

Nah, it's just a game of basketball in the Olympics.

These guys are putting in work to accomplish a goal so despite the fact that they're already getting paid millions of dollars to play in the NBA...they should also get paid for services in the Olympics.

Who's gonna pay them? Those of you who support his comments...would you pay taxes for these guys to play in the olympics?
Strength does not come from physical capacity. It comes from an indomitable will.

No they shouldn't get paid. They're dedicating their services for this. They don't have to be on the team, it's an honor to play in the olympics. He needs to be [expletive]ing grateful he gets that opportunity to represent his country.

Olympic athletes already get paid if the get medals it's not like their gonna be adding new taxes or taking money from something more important to pay them I'm sure there's like some Olympic fund or something like that, but I'm not saying I support his view but I'm not against it.
