They say the key to success is preparation, but it seems the men's basketball team have been getting entirely the wrong kind of warm-up in Rio.
At least three members of the men's team - DeAndre Jordan, DeMarcus 'Boogie' Cousins and DeMar Derozan - have allegedly been caught in a brothel in the city.
The trio were busted going into Termas Monte Carlo, an establishment described by Rolling Stone as 'one of the high-end brothels in Rio', according to reports.
According to TMZ, the gentleman's club presents itself as a spa and staff have been instructed to give callers that line.The only indication of the shop's true purpose is when callers are told that it is for men only, and stocks a full bar.
The basketball team say the players took staff at their word and didn't realize what they were walking into until they arrived.
A source told TMZ: 'They realized it wasn't the right place for them and immediately left.'
Did they really get fooled or is this just a cover story....?
