Team USA unites as basketball players Kevin Durant, Draymond Green, Klay Thompson, DeAndre Jordan and DeMarcus Cousins show out to support Olympic swimmer Michael Phelps and the swim team. Peep their congratulatory pics and video of them fanning out inside….
Olympic swimmer Michael Phelps, the most decorated American Olympian ever, won his record setting 21st Olympic gold medal last night. And USA basketball players were in the mix to celebrate the historic accomplishment.
After the swimmers won big in last night's relay, NBA ballers Kevin Durant, Draymond Green, Klay Thompson, DeAndre Jordan and DeMarcus Cousins met up with Michael and the rest of the swim team to show their support.
And, of course, capturing the moment with flicks.
They also congratulated Olympic swimmer Katie Ledecky -- who is KILLING IT by the way --after she took home another gold in the 200m freestyle.
Kevin fanned out about meeting Michael. On Instagram, he said, "In the presence of greatness." The new Golden State Warriors baller said previously he tried to meet Michael during the opening ceremony, but never got the chance to link up. He finally got his chance last night.
He also showed Katie some hometown love. They're both D.C. natives.
Draymond nabbed a pic with the Olympic G.O.A.T. as well.
Check out the clip below of the NBA ballers dappin' up the swim team:
In the stands..
Team USA ballers and more put on a united front in the stands to cheer on the swim team as they battled for gold.
The basketball squad was in full celebration mode. Hilar.

In unfortunate news, two Olympic boxers have been arrested for sexual assault in Rio. According to reports, 22-year-old Jonas Junius, a light welterweight for Namibia and served as their flag bearer during the opening ceremonies, was arrested by Brazilian police for allegedly attempting to force himself on a maid in Olympic Village.
Days earlier, Olympic boxer Hassan Saada of Morocco was arrested last Friday for allegedly sexually assaulting two waitresses who were employed at the Olympic Village at Barra da Tijuca.
They’ve got to do better!
