Social Media Reacts To USA Men’s Basketball Losing To France At Olympics

USA was supposed to come in and dominate the Men’s Basketball Olympics as they were large favorites to take home gold.


Today, USA fans and backers were slapped in the face as they lost their opening round robin game against France 83 – 76. Team USA led 74-67 with 3:41 remaining, before Evan Fournier ignited a 14-0 run that helped France take over the game and get the win. This was their first loss since the 2004 Olympics.

Social media was quick to poke fun at everyone and everything about Team USA.

The men’s team will take on Iran Wednesday July 28th at 12:40 AM EST as they look to avenge their opening game loss.
