December 1 marked the anniversary of the day Dr. James Naismith created the game of basketball in 1891, so it was nice to see Naismith honored on Instagram by superstar LeBron James, who has won four gold medals with USA Basketball, including a pair of Olympic golds.

  After winning gold in October with the USA Women’s National Team at the 2014 FIBA World Championship, Nnemkadi Ogwumike is playing for Russia’s Dynamo Kursk of the EuroLeague. Earning Player of the Week honors got her a shout-out here from her sister, Chiney, also a USA Basketball veteran. Why doesn’t Chiney want Nneka to thrive against Schio? Because that’s her EuroLeague team, of course.

  Happy Thanksgiving from USA Men’s World Cup gold medalist DeMarcus Cousins, who brings new meaning to the term “shake a leg.”

Cousins wasn’t the only Men’s National Team member in the holiday spirit last week, as James Harden shared this photo from the Thanksgiving meal he catered and served to families in the Houston area.

Caleb Swanigan, who helped the 2014 USA U17 World Championship Team win gold this summer, poses here with a couple of his youngest fans. The senior from Homestead H.S. in Fort Wayne, Indiana, had a big game Saturday night with 39 points, 21 boards and 12 assists – reaching 1,000 points for his prep career.


Anna Wilson, a member of the 2014 USA Basketball U17 World Championship Team that captured the gold medal at the 2014 FIBA U17 World Championship, offered birthday wishes to her brother – who also happens to be a fairly successful athlete…

--- … Wonder if Anna picked up a few new followers when her brother, Russell, gave her a shout-out?
