It's Puerto Rican day. There was even a parade. With the way Barea played, he can bust out his flag if he wants.

I never thought you US fellows would have a problem with someone busting out the flag.

I mean, don't you guys bust out the stars and stripers for every celebration ever?

I think people need to understand that US players win the title every year. It's rarer some of these countries have players who win. So, when a player wins (like Barea) he breaks out the flag to show that his supporters in PR, he's thinking of you. Like Manu did with Argentina. I see no problem with it. I think it's great.
