USA Men's Olympic Basketball Team Roster and Players

Defending champions, USA is by far the most successful country in Olympic men’s basketball. Over the years, Team USA have won 15 medals in 18 men's Olympic Games basketball tournaments. From 1936 through 1968, they have won seven consecutive titles. The not so star-studded USA men's basketball team, head coached by Gregg Popovich, will look to win their fourth straight gold in the competition scheduled to take place in July and August 2021, with their first game against France in the opener on July 25 in Saitama.

With three straight gold medals, Team USA’s dominance from the last 12 years might seem to fade with the rise of talent around the world. They finished seventh in the 2019 FIBA World Cup which snapped their 12-year run of dominance of winning gold in every international tournament they participated in (Olympics: 2008, 2012, 2016; FIBA World Cup: 2010, 2014 and the 2017 FIBA Americas). Team USA’s performance so far in exhibition play has been 0-2 after a 91-83 loss to Australia in Las Vegas. With the likes of Lillard, Kevin Durant, Bradley Beal, Jayson Tatum and Draymond Green, it’s only a matter of time that’ll tell if they are far from being the gold medal favorite or not.
