Unless you’re French, the most entertaining part of today’s France-United States men’s basketball game was what happened at halftime.

During halftime, a basketball shooting robot was putting on an exhibition and was programmed to hit free throws, three pointers, and half-court shots with pinpoint accuracy. As you can see, despite it taking forever to shoot, the robot is pretty good.

Social media had something to say about the basketball shooting robot, with jokes about who the robot resembles and where it could play.

At least those watching for Team USA had a little bit of fun after seeing their team lose 83-76. Maybe they could use the robot.
