Watch: Kevin Durant, Kyrie Irving and DeMarcus Cousins Really Got Into This Game of Taboo

Watch: Kevin Durant, Kyrie Irving and DeMarcus Cousins Really Got Into This Game of Taboo

A funny team building exercise.

Published July 26, 2016

Team USA doesn't have any worries on its road to Rio for the 2016 Olympics.

You wouldn't either if you defeated Argentina and China by a combined 86 points in exhibition action thus far.

That could explain why three of the team's stars — Kevin DurantKyrie Irving and DeMarcus Cousins — took some time out to play Taboo against GQ magazine staffers.

And from the looks of this video, KD, Uncle Drew and Boogie all play board games similarly to the way they ball on the hardwood.

Cousins, much like he is on the court, is intense as ever, barking out, "another word for terrified," before giving up and saying, "Oh my God!" Ha!

Laid back as can be, KD followed, leading his teammates to two successful clues for correct answers.

But Kyrie played Taboo like he was having flashbacks to Game 7 of the NBA Finals, firing off one clue after another and racking up those points for his squad.

Was his effort enough to beat GQ, though? Take a look.

Funny stuff...and a team-building exercise in the process. Hey, why not?

Like this game of Taboo, Team USA will probably have many more memorable moments off the court once they touch down in Rio for the 2016 Olympics.

In the meantime, Team USA faces China on Tuesday night at Oracle Arena in Oakland in another exhibition game.

For Golden State Warriors fans, it will be their first look at watching KD and the future of the squad on their home court since he signed with the team earlier this month.

Remember, Team USA also includes Durant's Warriors teammates Klay Thompson and Draymond Green.
