    Aww! 

    The First Lady of the United States sat in the front row for the event, watching the action as Team USA dominated the French team (which included a hipster goggle wearing Tony Parker).

    "It's crazy, man," Team USA forward Kevin Durant told NBC Sports reporter Craig Sager about hugging the First Lady. "I'm just happy I'm here."

    The U.S. men's basketball team will hit the court again Tuesday when they face off against Tunisia.
