Carmelo Anthony told The Vertical's Michael Lee:

“That's at the top of the sport, of any sport. I think if you have the opportunity to do it, and enjoy it, and take advantage of it, I think you should do it. (The Olympics are) the throne for sports as a whole. I'm going to take a little more time to think about it. I'm not in a rush. NBA season is still going on, so I'm going to see how I feel physically. Am I ready to take on – I don't want to say burden, but – that load? If I'm ready, I'll do it. If not, my body won't lie to me.”
