Team USA celebrates gold medal on Snapchat

Sunday August 21st, 2016

The USA men’s basketball team took home Olympic gold on Sunday afternoon, and had a grand old time celebrating the victory afterward.

The United States blew out Serbia, 96–66, led by Kevin Durant’s 30 points and DeMarcus Cousins’s 15 rebounds, and has now won three straight Olympic golds.

Here is some behind-the-scenes footage of the team screaming and dancing and singing, from the Snapchats of Carmelo Anthony, Harrison Barnes and Draymond Green. 

The team received several congratulations from NBA players everywhere. Anthony announced after the game that he would retire from play with Team USA.
