The big thing on social media lately if you haven't seen it has been the Ice Bucket Challenge, in which people dump ice water on themselves to raise awareness for ALS research while challenging others to do the same.  DeMarcus Cousins, Rudy Gay and other Team USA members got into the spirit of things recently by taking part in the challenge themselves, as evidenced by this video from Cousins' Instagram.

Here's another angle from Rudy Gay's Instagram:

Cousins' reaction is priceless.  However, I couldn't help but notice that DeMar DeRozan is wearing socks with sandals.  Raptors fans must be worried to know their star player has transformed into a 45 year old father of three.

Of course, the main part of this challenge is to raise awareness for ALS.  If you would like to donate to the ALS Association, here is the link.  If you're unfamiliar with what ALS is, you can go here for more information on the disease.
