Team USA hang out with Bayern Munich in Chicago in preparation for the Rio Olympics

Team USA really seem to be enjoying themselves as of late. Not only did they dismantle China into oblivion over the course of two warm-up games totalling a 99-point winning margin, but they're finding time to hang out with some fellow sports superstars, too.

While the American's await their next exhibition game against Venezuela in Chicago, German football champions Bayern Munich also happen to be in the Windy City as they continue their pre-season preparations.

Harrison Barnes and DeMarcus Cousins found time to hang out with several members of the German heavyweights, including Frank Ribery, Xabi Alonso and Javi Martinez.

Several pictures and videos have surfaced on twitter showing the footballers and basketball stars meshing seamlessly. They even used a trash can as a basketball rim for Boogie to emphatically dunk home, albeit uncontested.

Team USA will have to get serious in eight days time when the Olympic Games tip off and they compete for their third gold medal in a row. The U.S. national team may well be the runaway favourites, but they also have a major target on their back and every single nation they face will be desperate to claim such a scalp.

Barnes has been on the periphery thus far with the likes of Kevin Durant and Carmelo Anthony ahead of the new Dallas Mavericks star at the small forward position.

Cousins, on the other hand, has thoroughly impressed at the pivot for Team USA, sharing his minutes with DeAndre Jordan and even Draymond Green when Mike Krzyzewski operates with a smaller lineup.

With serious question marks surrounding Cousins' temperament on the court at times, it's good to see him enjoying himself and relaxing off of it.
