U.S. Olympic Men's Basketball Team Singing 'A Thousand Miles' Is Us On Every Road Trip

"Making my way downtown ..."

On their flight to Rio de Janeiro, the U.S. Olympic men's basketball team broke out in what we'd call one of the best-traveling songs of all time: Vanessa Carlton's "A Thousand Miles."

In footage posted on DeMarcus Cousins and DeMar DeRozan's Instagram account, Chicago Bulls' Jimmy Butler leads the group through the song, playing air piano while some other team members join in, recording a few videos and laughing along.

For a group that's about to take on an incredibly difficult challenge at the Olympics — their first game is on Saturday — we think a little light sing-along is the perfect destresser.
