The United States Olympic basketball team beat China’s best today in Rio de Janeiro. The some of the best players in the world who represent Team USA dominated in a contest I would call a glorified exhibition, and that is being too kind.   What a waste of fine natural basketball talent.  Men against boys would not be telling the truth. The Olympic basketball set-up with professional basketball players is a joke.  Let the non-professionals in this sport participate, and make an age limit of 22, stopping countries to pretend that their 35 year old players are not professionals.
