The lesson from the incident: don't believe everything you hear over the phone

MANILA, Philippines – It’s easy to get lost when you’re trying to discover foreign lands, and where you end up may sometimes get you into trouble – like ending up on TMZ.

According to a report by the website, Team USA’s NBA players DeAndre Jordan, DeMarcus Cousins, DeMar Derozan, and “possibly 3 other players” planned on visiting a spa while at Rio ee Janeiro but accidentally ended up in a brothel.

A few days before the opening ceremony of the Olympic Games, the Team USA players wound up at Termas Monte Carlo, which Rolling Stone called as “one of the high end brothels in Rio.”

The players are currently in the city for the 2016 Olympic Games, which officially opened Friday, August 5 (Saturday morning, Manila time).

The TMZ report indicates that “when you call the place, they’ll tell you it’s a spa that plays music… and it’s just for male customers.” Apparently, a full bar is also available for patronage.

However, a source told the website that the fooled NBA players were only hanging out inside the bar to have drinks, and once they realized what the place actually was, they immediately left.

Just this past week, another member of Team USA, Draymond Green, received heat after accidentally posting a picture of his penis on his Snapchat account.

Team USA, which opens its campaign for a third straight gold medal against China, is the favorite to win the crown once again. Their biggest difficulty so far has been staying away from embarrassing headlines.
