Team USA men's basketball has adorable singalong to Vanessa Carlton song

You've just played a pre-Olympics matchup against Venezuela, and you're back on the plane with your fellow USA Olympic Men's Basketball players. Do you rest?

@jimmybutler back at it.... Looking like Willie Beamen

Carmelo Anthony is probably wondering right now, "Just how long is this song, anyway?"

It's hard not to want to sing along (unless you're Anthony), but we understand how something like this could lead to serious dismay.

As does Carlton:

You guys keep doing you — and good luck at the Rio Olympics!
