This dream collection of players has combined to earn eight NBA MVPs, 12 NBA titles, and 78 NBA All-Star selections. The final roster spot has reportedly yet to be determined with notable players in the pool including Kawhi Leonard, Paul George, and Jalen Brunson.

While James, Durant, and Davis were among the players on the famed 2012 roster, superstars like Curry, Embiid, and Tatum are set to compete in their first Olympics. Team USA is trying to win its fifth consecutive Olympic gold medal, an accomplishment the Americans achieved when they won the first seven basketball golds from 1936 to 1968.
