Team USA takes Ice Bucket Challenge

Someone challenged Team USA to the Ice Bucket Challenge. Who are they to decline?

Apparently Kyrie Irving and Miles Plumlee decided not to participate. Team USA challenged President Barack Obama, NBA commissioner Adam Silver and Oprah Winfrey to take the challenge and raise awareness for ALS.

More on that in a second.

The next person to take the challenge was former Team USA and current NBA MVP Kevin Durant taking the challenge:

Steve Nash and J.R. Smith issued the challenge to Durant. Durant returned the favor to teammates Russell Westbrook and Kendrick Perkins and Cavs forward LeBron James.

Who is next?

What is the Ice Bucket Challenge? It is a social media movement going around to raise awareness for ALS (aka Lou Gherig’s Disease). The movement has helped raise $2.9 million for the ALS Association as of July 29.
