Melo: Team must move on after reports of brothel visit

RIO DE JANEIRO (AP) Carmelo Anthony says his US men's basketball teammates need to accept responsibility and move on after reports that three players visited a legal brothel in Rio de Janeiro.

''What's done is done. We have time off and guys did what they did. We accept those responsibilities and move on,'' said Anthony, a four-time Olympian and the elder statesmen of the team. The Americans dominated China 119-62.

Anthony was responding to questions about a TMZ report that several players thought they were walking into a spa on their day off Wednesday night, but wound up in a brothel.

Coach Mike Krzyzewski did not address the situation during his postgame news conference.
