No one wanted by the top scorer on the 1996 USA basketball team

Grant Hill says no one wanted by the top scorer on the 1996 USA basketball team:

It was actually pretty funny - nobody on the team wanted to be the leading scorer in those games, in the Olympic games. Because whoever was the leading scorer, ended up having to be drug tested.

And the reason for that is the drug testing process, you'd be there for two hours after the game. And so nobody wanted to be there and have to go through that whole process.

So if you watch those games and you watch the highlights at the end of the games, everyone is being super unselfish passing the ball. Because no one wants to shoot (laughs).
