The 2012 Olympic USA Basketball Team roster is composed of 12 of the finest professional basketball players from the United States and will compete for a gold medal at the 2012 Summer Olympics in London, England. After losing many strong finalists to injury, the 12-member team for the 2012 Olympics was announced on July 7, 2012.

What is the best Summer Olympics sport?

Like many editions of the squad from the past, the 2012 US Men's Basketball team will enter the Summer Olympics with big expectations to dominate the tournament and bring home a gold medal. This was also the case in 1992 when the "Dream Team," composed of some of the best basketball players of all time, won the gold medal in glorious fashion. Other teams in the years since were less successful, such as the 2004 squad, but the US bounced back to win a gold medal in 2008.

Many of the players from that 2008 team returned for the 2012 campaign. Comprised completely of National Basketball Association players, the 2012 roster includes some of the best in professional basketball right now such as Kobe Bryant, Kevin Durant, LeBron James, Kevin Love and Carmelo Anthony. Additionally, Blake Griffin, Andre Iguodala and James Harden were named final members the team.

Thought not as strong as originally projected, the US Men's Olympic Basketball team is still expected to be one of those with the most potential at the 2012 Olympics. Think they're destined for gold or do you see a supreme upset in their future? Tell us what you think and why by leaving a comment below.
