    Default Dwyane Wade eyes Olympic pay

    MIAMI -- Count two-time Olympian and Miami Heat guard Dwyane Wade among those who believe NBA players should be paid for playing with Team USA in the London Olympics.

    Wade, the leading scorer on the 2008 national team that won a gold medal in China, said he agreed with Boston Celtics guard Ray Allen that players should be compensated for their time participating in the Summer Games. Allen first addressed the issue Tuesday night in an interview with FoxSports.com before the Celtics beat the Heat in Miami.

    If you have to get paid to represent your country, well, then you're a selfish fraud.

    Agreed. I remember the good ole days when Pro athletes could not participate in the Olimpics. This is the exact reason why they shouldn't. Greed!

    i don't even know where to start. This could be one of the dumbest things I've ever heard. what a moron.

    I don't know what happened to him. I used to like Wade. He used to be pretty humble. But I guess a few rings and now having Lebron with him he's become a total douche.

    I thought he only has one ring.

    If that's what some of the prima donna pros have come to, I wouldn't be against just going back to sending amateur teams to the games.

    So we lose a few more games. At least, guys such as Wade and Allen, who apparently don't give a crap about representing this country, won't be there . . .
