Kids Go Bonkers When Meeting USA Basketball Players (Video)

When meeting USA Basketball players – the likes of Carmelo Anthony and Kevin Durant – kids tend to go nuts, wherever it may go down.

Forget the age, grown adults would lose their mind if put in this situation.

Nick Schwartz of Fox Sports had the story first. Team USA Basketball unveiled their official 12-player team on Monday.


The squad visited Rucker Park and the Dunlevy Milbank Center.

Once there, the lucky youngsters on hand to witness the 12-man unveiling lost their minds at the sight of their favorite NBA superstars.

No, there isn’t a LeBron James or Kobe Bryant this time around, but the likes of Kevin Durant, Carmelo Anthony, Paul George, Kyrie Irving, and DeMar DeRozan adjusted the excitement lever on high just fine:

From Rucker Park today to the Rio Olympics in a little over a month, Team USA is ready.
