OKC Loud Links: Team USA In Action Today

Team USA is back in action this afternoon, taking on the Tunisian powerhouse. One thing that I've noticed so far is that the Olympic broadcast has been extremely tight with its video production, so it's tough to find good video footage on Youtube of anything of consequence that happens. To that I say, way to go, President Rogge. Heaven forbid anyone might actually want to watch what is going on in these games when they have free time.

LeBron realizes what we all do - Kevin Durant is the most proficient scorer on the planet at this moment in time. It seems like LeBron would be quite content simply setting up KD 15-20 times a game and just let Durant finish plays. I like the fact that the two best players on the planet have learned to compliment each other so easily, despite their natural NBA rivalry.

After the jump, First Lady Michelle Obama has hugs for everyone, becoming the unofficial soccer mom for Team USA. Knowing how moms usually operate, I'm surprised she didn't try to pluck out some of Anthony Davis' unibrow.
