Rio de Janeiro, Brazil — We’ve all heard the phrase, “I want to be like Mike!” in reference to Michael Jordan.
Today, NBA stars Jimmy Butler and DeAndre Jordan, shared who they would want to be like and it isn’t another player from the NBA. However they named a few of the women from our National Team currently representing the US in the Rio Olympics.
The praise of wanting to play like these women didn’t stop there. Newly NBA Champion, Kyrie Irving also gave his thoughts on the greatness of the women and being able to watch them play together in Rio and the “unique style” they bring to the game.
