US Men’s Olympic Basketball All-Time Dream Team

List Criteria: Only players who have played in the U.S. Men's Olympic Basketball team since 1992

US Men's Olympic Basketball All-Time Dream Team includes the very best American-born professional basketball players to ever wear the red, white and blue in the Summer Olympics. These are some of the best basketball players to ever play the game and all helped the US Men's Olympic Basketball team win medals and earn the praise of fans around the world.

It's easy to say that the 1992 US Men's Basketball Team, stacked with talent with the likes of Michael Jordan, Scottie Pippen, Larry Bird, Charles Barkley and Magic Johnson, was the best ever. Known simply as the Dream Team, these legends of the sport dominated in every aspect of the 1992 Summer Olympics by winning each game by at least 32 points and winning the gold medal.

That 1992 Dream Team became the gold standard for any other team to come after them, and while Team USA has won Olympic gold medals in the years since, the 1992 team remains the one to which all subsequent teams are compared. It would be hard to ever top the level of talent seen on that dream team but there are certainly other players that come close.

After the US lost in the 2004 Summer Olympics, a new set of stars, known as the Redeem Team competed in 2008 to bring the title back to the states. That team, led by stars like LeBron James, Dwyane Wade, Kobe Bryany, Carmelo Anthony and Chris Bosh, did just that and returned the gold medal to America. These future hall of famers, many of whom are the best basketball players of the 2000s, are primed to return for another gold medal in 2012.

The US Men's Olympic Basketball All-Time Dream Team is not about one specific team though. This list represents the best to ever represent the United States in international basketball competition. Which of these athletes is the best of them all? You decide that one basketball fans by voting for the players you think were the best ever to play for Team USA.
