Nike Basketball and Chance the Rapper release a new anthem for the USA Basketball Team.

The Olympic Games represent a time for the globe to come together in a celebration of sport. On the basketball court, it’s a time for 24 players from 16 rival cities to come together to play for their country. To celebrate this moment in sports and culture, Nike Basketball called upon rising hip-hop star Chance The Rapper to write a song -- an anthem our national teams could call their own. The song marks a time when the U.S. is confronting the challenges of political conflict and societal division, and the Olympics provided a unique opportunity to celebrate unity and the unifying power of sport. The USA is the home of basketball —and this summer it will bring us back together.

Nike Basketball has also, for the first time ever, shot the official Olympics USA Basketball team photo with both the men’s and women’s teams, together. The official photo, from celebrated music photographer Danny Clinch, shows the global basketball superpower as a united front.
