During Team USA's quarterfinal victory over Australia Wednesday, Kobe Bryant displayed his clutchness when he came into the second half hot, dropping 20 points.

After the victory, however, the Black Mamba was drug tested, as the New York Post reports.

The source says that Bryant was the USA player chosen to take a mandatory random drug test. However, it seems like a coincidence that they would pick him, especially after his performance.

Bryant would arrive back to the hotel with his teammates at 2 AM, hours after USA already arrived earlier at 10. It must have been a weird experience.

It's not surprising how Bryant did this. Australia only has one good player basically on their team in Patty Mills and everyone knew they weren't going to stop USA.

Oh well, at least after all of this, Bryant can walk out of London with a gold medal.
