On representing his nation at the Olympic Games

“The food. I love eating, and the cafeteria is phenomenal. There is food of every kind.” “I remember walking into my first opening ceremony with Vince Carter and David Robinson on either side of me. Both of them were amazed at the experience. If an NBA star is at a loss for words, imagine how everyone else must be feeling!”
Tony Azevedo
Rio is one of a kind. For someone coming to Brazil for the Olympic Games, it is going to be like going to Disneyland for the first time. I hope and feel like the Rio Games will be remembered forever.
