thanx for not posting the story and only the website just so u can confuse others.

Rio de Janeiro was just named host for the 2016 Summer Olympics. Is Denver Nuggets’ center Nene, a native of Brazil, expecting to then play for his home country? “In seven years, I’m retired in seven years,” Nene said in an interview Saturday with FanHouse.

Nene, entering his eighth season, turned 27 last month, and would seem to still have some good years left in 2016 and beyond. Is he serious about retiring before the Rio de Janeiro Olympics, when he will be just 33? “Oh yeah,” he said. “I’m serious.”

I'm confused, is he upset that Brazil got the Olympics?

Interesting. It would be a shame if he did this, but it's his decision.
