US Men’s Basketball beats France, gets hugs from Michelle Obama
Team USA beat France at the Olympic games 98-71, but the real story was the first Lady.
Michelle Obama was front and center to hug all of the NBA stars. As the team broke a postgame huddle, LeBron James led his teammates in single file across the court to the first lady’s front-row seat.
“For her to be sitting there while we’re out there competing — not just for us, but for our country — for her to be there, we gave her a hug to thank her for coming,” said Carmelo Anthony. “And she thanked us for going out there and doing what we’re doing for America.”
Later, Mrs. O. met with military families at Mildenhall and Lakenheath U.S. Air Force Base at RAF Mildenhall before she boarded a jet to head back home to Washington.
