Carmelo Anthony was in no mood to sing along during Team USA flight

Team USA are in high spirits right now after four straight blowout wins over Argentina, China and Venezuela. After their latest win in Chicago, they are heading to Houston, Texas, for their final stop before Brazil as they prepare to play Nigeria in their last warm-up game.

Having spent so much time together over the past two weeks, the players have built up quite the camaraderie and Toronto Raptors shooting guard DeMar DeRozan posted a video on his Instagram of the players singing along to the famous song: A Thousand Miles by Vanessa Carlton.

But there was one player who seemed in no mood to sing along. New York Knicks forward and the leader of the team Carmelo Anthony can be seen towards the end of the video looking glum as he stares into the camera with a blank expression on his face.

His attitude didn't stop Jimmy Butler and Kyrie Irving, who put their hearts and souls into the performance.


With just seven days to go until the Olympics men's basketball competition tips off, the United States are making their final preparations as they go in search of a third consecutive gold medal.

Not much can be read into their performances so far as the level of competition has been below average. However, the manner of the huge victories will be pleasing to the coaching staff. They may not have the superstar talent of LeBron James, Stephen Curry or Russell Westbrook, but they have a togetherness that has escaped teams in the past, don't let Melo's face fool you.
