With the Olympics underway, USA TODAY NBA reporters Sam Amick and Jeff Zillgitt take a look at USA Basketball and how they were pushed to the limit by Australia. The guys discuss how that game will be important to the Americans as they try to win another gold medal.
They discuss the situation in Rio, trying to get to the various events and practices. They talk a little about the Olympics experience and the USA TODAY coverage of the games.
Then they talk about some of the other sports they’ve been able to check out while they’re in Rio and how the USA Basketball team is just as star struck with some of the other super athletes as folks are to them.
Sam and Jeff pull back the curtain a little and talk about what it’s like to cover these games, from the accommodations to the food.
The guys then share a conversation with Kevin Durant and DeMar DeRozan.
