Many reasons to tune into Olympic hoops for NBA fans

Sure, the United States men's basketball team is fun to watch in this year's Olympics, just like every other year. But there are 47 overseas NBA players representing non-U.S. countries in the men's basketball event, and you can catch that list right here via NBA.com's John Schuhmann.

Then there's the list of players who haven't yet played in the NBA but have their draft rights held by NBA teams. My favorite from the list is Zhou Qi, a lanky 7-foot-2 center from China who was drafted in the second round this year by Houston.


Paul, you're not in Indiana anymore

A funny moment from Paul George was caught on camera during a break when he finished a water cup and reached back to hand it to a phantom water-person. Sorry, Paul, you have to dispose of your own cups in Rio.
