I'm going to say bad. Taking the the NBA/Thunder/Oklahoma City/personal brand worldwide through the Olympics is a huge benefit. Sure there's an injury risk, but as has been said many times, these guys would be playing basketball anyway. You think there wasn't an injury risk at Rucker Park when Kevin Durant dropped 60-something point and got mobbed by fans? There's risk in everything. The potential reward is far greater. I don't want to claim that as my worldview. I think about risk too, and if I was Mark Cuban I'd probably look at it like he does. But the world's greatest player, or someone who like Durant is in the discussion, belongs in the world's games, the Olympics.
Hope someone asks him soon. I'm interested to hear what he says about it after the Olympics. Hopefully Darnell Mayberry will get that chance when KD gets back from London.
