Team USA is getting ready for the Tokyo Olympics as they look to retain a gold medal; however, the start to the road is off to a bumpy start. The Gregg Popovich-led squad squared off against Nigeria in what would be a reality check. 

Despite the talent gap, Nigeria came away with a 90-87 victory over the Americans. Former NBA head coach Mike Brown led the Nigerians to the win in what is a wake-up call that the USA needed to understand that they won't be able to waltz their way to a gold medal. 

Here's some of the reaction to the historic win by Nigeria over the USA.

The USA's quest for a fourth straight gold medal begins on July 25th when they open up the preliminary round against France.
