What's wrong for playing for his country though? I respect that decision moreso than anything else. It shows he has principles and that's something incredibly rare in today's society where it's only "me-first". If anything, it shows his commitment to basketball and I'm sure that summer, if we had a game instead of Spain, he'd be suiting up for us then too.

His integrity is something we should admire.
