For the 4th time in a row, the USA men’s basketball team won gold at the olympics. One of the country’s most decorated athletes, Tom Brady, was proud of the display they put on in Tokyo.
Team USA got off to a rough start to their Olympics campaign. After losing to Nigeria in a practice match, Gregg Popovich’s men also lost their first game at the Olympics to France, 83-76.
But after that (slightly humiliating) loss, the Americans picked up the slack and went undefeated for the rest of the tournament. Led by Kevin Durant, they beat Iran and the Czech Republic convincingly to escape the group stage,
They then went on to win over Spain, Australia, and finally France in the final to take home the gold medal. KD dropped 29 points in the crucial game, winning his 3rd Olympic gold medal.

New team. Same dream. @usabasketball silences the doubters by letting their game speak for itself.
When did they make you believe?
