On Monday, the 2016 U.S. Olympic Men’s Basketball Team was unveiled on social media but, a few kids in Harlem had the chance to be a part of the live reveal and were surprised when they had the chance to meet the team in person.

True shock and awe can be seen and heard coming from the priceless reactions of these very lucky preteens.

The aftershock of four young boys whose reactions to seeing some of their favorite players in the flesh gave true meaning to the phrase, “it’s lit.” They were literally jumping for joy, with one saying, “If I see Melo, I’m gonna cry. I’m gonna cry,” and another exclaiming “If I see Melo, I’m gonna give him a hug.”

As they bounce basketballs and emphatically explain how incredible it was to see players like Kevin Durant and Carmelo Anthony, you can’t help but smile and revel in the happiness with them. This is definitely an incredible memory that these boys will remember for the rest of their lives. Maybe one day, they’ll have the chance to meet the other players mentioned in the video. If they do, we imagine those reactions may look something like this..
