Part of the Olympic experience for athletes is just getting to be fans of other sport stars.
That's the position Kevin Durant and his Team USA teammates found themselves in Tuesday night, congratulating Michael Phelps after the swimmer won the 200-meter butterfly for his 20th gold medal.
The night would only get sweeter for Phelps, too, as he tacked on his 21st gold medal, anchoring the 4x200 freestyle relay later on.
Watching from the stands in Rio de Janeiro, Team USA Basketball seemed to especially love Phelps's Dikembe Mutombo-like "no, no, no" finger wag in the direction of his rival, South African Chad le Clos.
No need for the #PhelpsFace on Tuesday night.
