National Post Sports

HUGS FOR EVERYBODY: In their first game, the United States men’s team thrashed France 98-71. Durant paced the Americans with 22 points. And then after the game, the team lined up, one by one, to get hugs from the First Lady, Michelle Obama.
Seeing some of the most famous athletes in the world line up for embraces with Mrs. Obama, dressed casually in a grey sweater, was a surreal sight. There were kisses of cheeks, and little-kid smiles from superstars. It was almost as if she was the mother of a son’s little-league team, ready to give all of the players frozen treats after a game.
