USA Men's Basketball Team To Play Exhibition Game In D.C.

D.C. basketball lovers, it's your lucky day.

Not only are you just hours away from watching NBA All-Star Weekend, but it has just been announced that LeBron James, Kobe Bryant, and the rest of the USA Men's Basketball Team are coming to town in July to train and play an exhibition game against Brazil.

Finally a reason to cheer for LeBron at Verizon Center!

Unless, of course, you're Brazilian.  

The game will take place on July 16 as part of a double-header with USA women's basketball who will also be taking on Brazil.

It is part of a world exhibition tour for the team which will have them play against Argentina, Brazil, Dominican Republic, Great Britain, and Spain in Las Vegas, D.C., Manchester, England, and Barcelona. 

Team USA will train in D.C. from July 13-15 and then play Brazil at the Verizon Center on the 16th.

Ticket information will be released at a later date.
