The USA Basketball team has been hard at work to bring home the gold! Hoop Mixtape put out a video of the highlights of Day 1 and Day 2 of the Team USA practices.

Rock Star Ish: Dwyane Wade Rocks Matte Black Toe Nail Polish! 

All the stars of the national team were balling, but in particular it was Blake Griffin who was jamming down “Power Layups” as Kevin Durant called them.

Say What? Melo Frightens People At The Wax Museum! 

One big surprise, though, was youngster Kyrie Irving. The young baller is not on the Olympic team, but he’s been a standout for the scout team.

The Cleveland Cavaliers point guard makes some of the national team players look just silly. He can dunk. He can post up on Melo. He easily freezes up Russell Westbrook.

The craziest feat is 23 seconds into the video, where Irving crosses up Kobe Bryant and Kevin Durant, spins off James Harden, and then dribbles between his legs from behind to get past Kobe again! Kyrie is hearkening back to those AND1 Mixtapes and pulling Rafer Alston-type swag.

This dude is incredible and everybody is at the edge of their seats to see what the NBA’s next superstar, Kyrie Irving, will come up with next!

Check out the video here and cheer for the USA when they head out to London!
