Team USA takes on ALS Ice Bucket Challenge

Aug 16, 2014, 9:30 AM EDT

Team USA #alsicebucketchallenge… We all were challenged by somebody so we did it together.@sydelcurry and Wes Matthews challenged me. We nominate Barack Obama, Adam Silver, and Chicago’s own @Oprah

The ALS Ice Bucket Challenge — raising awareness of ALS and seeking donations to help fight the disease — continues to sweep through the NBA. A bunch of players have taken part.

Next up, Team USA.

    A bunch of millionaires deciding to get the ice water rather than donate the $. I hope they all still donated.

      Who the f*** put you in charge of their money? STFU, a-hole and donate your own lousy money.

      A lot of the famous people are doing both.

      That said, Curry didn’t get much on him. Whoever was pouring his was too nice.

      the disease is already cured. Why would they waste their money lining the pockets of scam artists who prey on your ignorance. Google DR JOEL WALLACH ALZHEIMERS to know the cure.

        uh trevore what the alzheimers has to do with als its different! Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis(ALS) is a whole different IT IS NOT CURED Look it up!

      • trevor123698 - Aug 20, 2014 at 12:08 AM

        you are a moron with no clue whatsoever to what cures disease. It is the same exact thing. Here is a doctor explaining why and then how to cure them. Wake up fool. you are a joke

      • susypmarshall - Aug 20, 2014 at 9:46 PM

        don’t call people morons that is mean but I WILL look into it

      • susypmarshall - Aug 21, 2014 at 5:27 PM

        That is not a cure

        Alzheimers and ALS (Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis) are completely different diseases.

      • trevor123698 - Aug 18, 2014 at 5:13 PM

        wake up fool

    I hope they donated as well and not just have cold water poured on them.

    This is so weak. Ice baths are tougher than 3 seconds of ice water dumped on you.

    I wish all these celebrities would choose to donate to causes they believed in because they wanted to do good, not just when they do some trendy promotional stunt.

    Too funny! Adam Silver, Oprah, and the President all called out by team USA. All of them will have to support the ALS campaign by making donations, if only to avoid criticism. Hopefully they get ice bucket showers too, lol.

    That’s why these type of “gimmicks”, as some would say, are worthwhile and can make a significant difference raising money and support.
