The USA Basketball team accidentally ends up in brothel

Published Add your comment

The U.S. men’s basketball team arrived in Rio for the Olympics this week. The participated in the parade of nations and looked extremely happy to be a part of the festivities.

Things haven’t been all great for the men’s squad. They reportedly found themselves lost in Rio on Wednesday night. DeAndre Jordan, DeMarcus Cousins, DeMar DeRozan and other unidentified players found themselves in a venue called Termas Monte Carlo.

That would be fine if the establishment was just a bar or a spa which it claims that it is on the business’ website. Rolling Stone, however, alleges that this spa is actually a “high-end brothel” which of course is problematic on a number of levels.

Olympic officials have warned many athletes to be aware of their surroundings and exercise caution around the city. Moments like this one show why that is such good advice for traveling competitors.

A source close to the team told TMZ: “They realized it wasn’t the right place for them and immediately left.” The team didn’t linger long once they figured out where they were and that shows that they will be more careful going forward.

The U.S. team is actually staying in a cruise liner where the opportunities to run into trouble will be at a minimum. Athletes in the Olympic village will have to brave the troubles present in those buildings before they can worry about the streets.

The village required all sorts of changes and repairs in preparation for the games. There were pipe problems and wiring issues that presented some real danger for the competitors staying in the suites.

Most of those problems have been ironed out but there is virtually no chance that these stories will be the last of participants finding themselves in awkward positions over the following weeks.

Brazil’s contests have just started and things have already proved entertaining.
