LONDON -- Hard fouls are fine. Carmelo Anthony has a problem with cheap shots.
The forward for the U.S. men's Olympic basketball team took one Monday night when Argentina guard Facundo Campazzo hit him in the groin while Anthony was shooting a 3-pointer in the closing seconds of the third quarter during the Americans' 126-97 victory.
"It was definitely a cheap shot. Something like that, I don't play like that, I don't agree with that," Anthony said Tuesday before practice. "If you're going to foul somebody ... foul them hard, but you don't take a shot like that. So I don't agree with that, but at this point there's really nothing that nobody can do about it."
