Golden State Warriors on Rio-Bound Plane

The Golden State Warriors are headed to Rio.

Guard Klay Thompson posted a picture on Instagram on Tuesday of him, alongside forwards Harrison Barnes and Draymond Green on a plane, along with other members of the men's and women's Team USA basketball teams. Newly hired Warriors Kevin Durant was also on the plane, though he was selected to play for Team USA while still a star for the Oklahoma City Thunder.

Thompson's fellow passengers are smiling and Thompson wrote: "Rio bound with the squads. #Questforgold."

The Warriors are the only NBA team with three representatives on the Olympic squad; every other team representing the United States is only sending one player. This summer, Barnes left the Warriors to play for the Dallas Mavericks.
