    Al Horford: I did not join the USA national team because I am Dominican!!!!

    SANTO DOMINGO.- La República Dominicana puede darse el lujo de decir que tiene algo que desea tener el Dream Team de los Estados Unidos: un jugador como Al Horford.

    He basically said he was invited to join the national team but he said no because he is Dominican.

    How ignorant, all he cares about is the American dollars. If you can't fight for America, what are you doing, getting paid in America. I say ship his dominican ***** back offshore.

    Yea I agree. If you're invited to play for the United States of America you don't turn your nose up at that. Period. Makes you seem very selfish.

    This must be one of the most idiotic things I've read in here (and I've read a lot).

    How is he ignorant exactly, the man was rocking the dominican flag and his heritage ever since he was winning titles in Florida and always declared he was Dominican. The guy is just proud of his roots and there is nothing wrong with that. It would be wrong however if he only came to play for the US national team just so that he could get his name more heard out there by double crossing his country. He's keeping it real whether you like to admit it or not. Al's just a classy guy.

    Who doesn't? But how about all the American players overseas, shouldn't they get kicked out too. Stop being so racist.

    Yeah, who cares where Horford plays. If he's Dominican, he has every right to play for the Dominican Republic. Nobody makes a big deal about Dirk playing in Germany, so why does he care about Al?

    does dirk need to suit up too? how about Pau? Nash? give me a break with this foxnews, rush limbaugh, fake patriotism tirades. he said he's dominican, that's what he is. The same way Manny, Pedro, tejada and many others suit up for the Dominicans during the world baseball classic. Are you insulted by that? Appreciate the fact that this country has the best pro leagues and gets the best talent and move on. Players still represent the countries that they claim.

    If you're so pro american representation, then I'm sure you're all for mexican immigrants working here, being allowed to become citizens as well right? Thought so, don't be a hypocrite!

    this thread is based on pure ignorance.
