Team USA basketball

A history of dominance

No team has dominated an Olympics sport to the extent Team USA has dominated men's basketball. In 16 Olympic Games, the U.S. has a 122-5 record, winning 13 gold medals, one silver medal, and two bronze medals. Look back at each U.S. apperance, from 1936, when basketball was first introduced as an official Olympic sport, to the Redeem Team in 2008.
