But, in one important way, the baddest basketball team on the planet is just like us. How, you ask? It's simple: They love Instagram!

For the past few weeks, LeBron James, Kevin Durant and company have been training, bonding and playing a series of exhibition games in the States and Europe. And they've been documenting and sharing the whole thing with some pretty amazing Instagram shots -- giant humans on Segways, Kevin Love posing with a miniature doppleganger and James Harden looking like a KO'd Kimbo Slice while passed out on the team bus with mouth agape, just to name a few examples.

Scroll through the gallery above to see some of our favorite Instagram shots from Team USA.
