Mesut Ozil is a man that knows a thing or two about winning World Cups. The Arsenal and Germany man lifted the FIFA World Cup trophy down in Brazil this summer thanks to a 1-0 victory over Argentina in the final and the playmaker was on hand to give a few tips about taking the title to USA Basketball stars during their Las Vegas camp.
The midfielder has been given time off by club boss Arsene Wenger after his exploits in South America to rest and recuperate along with teammates Per Mertesacker and Lukas Podolski.
And it seems the 25-year old has chosen to spend his well deserved rest in Vegas, linking up with the 'Dream Team' as they get ready for the FIBA World Cup which tips off at the end of this month.
Durant and Rose
The FA Cup winner met and spoke with Chicago Bulls point guard Derrick Rose, the two are sponsored by Adidas and have appeared in the same commercials over the years, as well as 2014 NBA MVP Kevin Durant, who actually recognised the Arsenal star and congratulated him on winning the biggest prize in World Football.
Ozil even had a little time to practice his jumper in the gym, but judging from the video evidence he could use some pointers from Durant and co.
Germany failed to qualify for the tournament this time around so i'm sure that Dallas Mavericks star Dirk Nowitzki won't be too troubled by his countryman hanging around with another team.
