Michael Garcia - July 10, 2012

The USA Basketball team will play their first exhibition game against the Dominican Republic on Thursday night in Las Vegas. In the meantime, they've been practicing and scrimmaging against each other.

If this mixtape is any indication, they will provide plenty of highlights if nothing else. Kyrie Irving puts on a crazy ball handling display, Blake Griffin does his usual insane dunking. The team is a good mix of vets like Kobe Bryant and LeBron James, and young guys like Kevin Durant, Griffin and Irving.

The one thing that's really missing from the team is the presence of multiple true big men. Hopefully that won't be a problem in the Olympics.
