As Team USA wins the gold medal at the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games, the players give a shout-out to LeBron James as they drink his Lobos Tequila brand while celebrating in the bus.
For several decades now, The United State of America has been the strongest team in the world. Even though basketball is a more worldwide sport than before, The USA remains to be the most dominant country with the most talented players in their squad. Iconic players like Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Magic Johnson, Michael Jordan, Kobe Bryant, LeBron James among many others, all hail from the United States.
Like every year, this year too, Team USA constructed a deadly team, led by 2014 NBA MVP Kevin Durant. The team was stacked with All-Stars, superstars and future first-ballot Hall-Of-Famers. Alongside KD, were some big names like Damian Lillard, Devin Booker, Draymond Green, Bam Adebayo, Zach LaVine, to name a few, who were given the responsibility of representing their country to bring home their fourth consecutive gold medal.
Things appeared a bit unsteady for the Americans after they lost their first two exhibition games against Nigeria and Australia, before leaving for the Tokyo Games. Even though Gregg Popovich’s boys suffered an opening match loss against France, Team USA never looked back after that.
Team USA celebrates their gold medal win by drinking liquor. The players gave a shout-out to LeBron James as they consumed the Lakers superstar’s Lobos Tequila brand on the bus.
After their disappointing opening match loss to France, Team USA’s performance throughout the campaign was absolutely sensational. They finished 2nd in Group A with 2 wins and a loss, having the biggest points difference (82) among all the teams in the tournament.
After handing huge losses to powerhouses Spain and Australia in the quarterfinals and semi-finals, respectively, Kevin Durant and co. had to face the undefeated and motivated French team in their gold-medal bout. The finals was probably more hard-fought and action-packed than anybody could’ve expected. However, it was the defending gold-medallists who managed to win the encounter 87-82.
GOLD IS COMING HOME! 🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸
