Bryant is one of the most competitive players in these Summer Games, but he had to oblige to an opponent’s request yesterday.

This type of royal treatment was also seen during the 1992 Olympics with the Dream Team. Some opponents were more concerned with trying to snag a picture with the players rather than figuring out a way to beat them.

Tunisia competed well against the Americans in the first half, but eventually the Americans came out on top. Although the Tunisian players surprised many with their play, you could tell they understood the USA was just too powerful.
