Colangelo Skeptical About Age Restriction On Olympics

David Stern has openly talked about his desire to make the Olympics a 23-and-under event.

"I think we got a lot out of the Olympics," Stern said ominously last month. "We helped grow the game. The result has been extraordinary. But I think it's appropriate to step back and take stock of where we're going."

USA Basketball is taking a wait and see approach to Stern’s proposal.

"I don't want to change anything, because I like what we have," chairman Jerry Colangelo said Sunday. "We take care of our players and I think we do the right things.

"You need a lot of things to fall into place in order for all of this [age restriction] to happen. You need the cooperation and the votes and support of a lot of people. So when I hear something like this, I say it may happen. The real question is when. Is it '16, is it 2020? Don't know at this point. It's a long way from the finish line."
