him possibly never getting a Gold medal would certainly drop him from the list of best evers. Though he should easily still make the 2020 team.

Playing in the Olympics is a great opportunity. However, I understand him taking time off for his health.

I don't blame anyone for not wanting to go due to Zika.

I have a feeling quite a few more players will be withdrawing from consideration due to the Zika virus under the guise of an injury.

Quote:
San Antonio Spurs forward LaMarcus Aldridge will miss the upcoming Summer Olympics due to a lingering finger injury, sources told ESPN.

Sources said that Aldridge joins Golden State Warriors guard Stephen Curry, who announced his removal from consideration Monday, and four other top players from USA Basketball's original 31-man player pool to skip the Olympics due to health.

It's a group that includes Clippers stars Blake Griffin (knee) and Chris Paul (hand), as well as Pelicans forward Anthony Davis (knee, shoulder) and Wizards guard John Wall (knee).

Is an olympic gold medal a prerequisite for that title (best ever) in the men's game?
