The younger members of the U.S. men's basketball team made their love of Vanessa Carlton's song "A Thousand Miles" well-known over the weekend. In a video posted by DeMarcus Cousins, veteran Carmelo Anthony is clearly not impressed:
After Monday's final tuneup for Team USA before the Olympics (a 110-66 victory over Nigeria), Melo apologized to Carlton and clarified that his issue was not with the song, but with mornings -- and likely his teammates' shenanigans.

Carlton tweeted over the weekend that she understood where Melo was coming from.

Perhaps there's a halftime duet in the works?
