HUMAN mawala si Paul George sa Indiana tungod sa pagkabali sa tuo nga tikod niini atol sa scrimmage, ang high scoring sa Oklahoma City Thunder nga si Kevin Durant mi-atras usab sa iyang partisipasyon sa USA Basketball team.

“This was an extremely difficult decision as I take great pride in representing our country,” matod ni Durant, kinsa nalakip national team nga naka-gold sa London Olympics ug sa 2010 world championships, sa iyang pamahayag nga gipadangat sa USA team.

“After going through training camp ... I realized I could not fulfill my responsibilities to the team from both a time and energy standpoint. I need to take a step back and take some time away, both mentally and physically in order to prepare for the upcoming NBA season.”

Si USA Basketball chief Jerry Colangelo nagkanayon nga gipasabot ni Durant ngadto kaniya ug ni head coach Mike Krzyzewski kagahapon kon nganong nakahukom siya niini.

“His well being is the most important thing to us and we support him taking the time to get ready for next season,” padayag ni Colangelo.

“He’s been part of the national team program for eight years and a big part of the success we have achieved, and we look forward to him being part of our success in the future as well.”

Si Durant maoy pina­ka­importante sa nahabiling 16 ka mga players nga nagtinguha nga malakip sa 12-man team nga morepresent sa US sa Fiba World Cup nga salmotan sa 24 ka nasod sugod karong Agusto 30 sa Spain.

Sa uwahing semana, si Kevin Love, Blake Griffin, LaMarcus Aldridge ug NBA Finals MVP Kawhi Leonard ang mi-withdraw usab sa US team tungod sa manag­lahing rason. JBM/abs-cbnnews.com
