Russia, U.S.: Becky Hammon

FP's Passport starts a discussion on whether the U.S. basketball player who'll play for Russia at the Olympics is “a traitor or a savvy capitalist.”

  • I think she is doing right on her behalf. One must have freedom of thoughts and freedom of practicality.
    If she is playing on behalf of Russia, then i think its just because of her basket ball carrer, not a US/Russia controvercies or betraying your country. Since Mother USA also depicts human rights, freedom & independence so i believe Hammon must also have a freedom in all walks of her life.
    Best of luck Becky
    I am with you.
