Photos: Team USA basketball celebrates with Michael Phelps

|

Tuesday night, Michael Phelps continued to make Olympic history when he took home his 21st Gold medal, his 25th overall. After his dominant performance, the USA basketball team decided to have a little fun with the record-setting swimmer.

NBC Sports shared a picture of Kevin Durant, DeAndre Jordan, Draymond Green and Klay Thompson hanging out in the stands and cheering on their fellow American Olympian. Team USA’s basketball team has made a habit of showing up to support American swimmers throughout the years in the aquatic center.

Phelps then hung out with a number of the team members behind the pool and they seemed to be all smiles.

Witnessed greatness tonight๐Ÿ… #20 #21

Team USA is looking to bring home another Gold medal later this month. They certainly have the right motivation after witnessing history.’
