I imagine the type of schedule that he has with the NBA and The German National team will take a toll on your body after a while. I'm starting to notice alot of players are declining to play for their country this year. And with Lebron and Wade complaining about being tired before half way through the season, I can only imagine somebody doing it for 7-8 years, playing in 82 regular games and then playing in the post season.
He didn't fizzle in last years playoffs so I say no.
