I am nearly lost for words getting to see the USA Olympic Team today. Nike put together an incredible event that will be remembered by many of the people in attendance. Posted after the jump are several (35 to be exact) photos from the day with brief captions.

Some shots that many of you should enjoy are the Olympic PEs for Lebron, Carmelo, Chris Paul, and the rest of the squad.
