Brandon Armstrong, noted YouTube NBA impersonator, takes his hilarious talents to America's favorite late-night talk show.

SB Nation's Ali Sadiki reports the reigning league MVP will forgoe the Rio Olympics for rest. However, a number of players are skipping on the 31st Olympiad due to Zika Virus concerns.

The world awaits LeBron's "decision" concerning a fourth run at Olympic glory.
With the multitude of talent set to miss this Summer's Olympic games, one might feel as though Team USA's in a similar position as the 2004 bronze-medal unit. That summer many NBA stars elected to pass on the Athens based games due to terror concerns. This resulted in a poor performance and world-wide embarrassment for USA basketball.
While certain similarities do exist with the 2016 USA Olympic team, the league's deeper talent pool should still allow for a second-tier group of American players to capture gold rather easily.
In closing, while it's an honor to represent one's country in Olympic play, service to the salary-paying NBA franchise should come first. If a player needs rest, he should rest; if injured, he should not play. Simple as that.
