Encyclopedia > Dream Team (basketball)

The Dream Team was the unofficial nickname of the United States men's basketball team that won the gold medal at the 1992 Summer Olympics in Barcelona, Spain. This team is often regarded as the greatest collection of talent on one competitive basketball team, and some regard the team as the greatest collection of talent in any sport.

Two years later, a second Dream Team competed in the 1994 Basketball World Championships, finishing first. In 1996 and 2000, Dream Teams III and IV once again captured gold medals. (No Dream Team competed in the 1998 World Championships as an NBA lockout prevented its players from competing.) Though the nickname was bestowed by some upon subsequent American national teams, the perfomances of the 2002 World Championship and 2004 Summer Olympic teams (which finished sixth and third, respectively) all but denied it, and perhaps future teams, the right to the "Dream Team" nickname. The 2004 team lost three games on its way to a bronze medal, a record that represented more losses in a single year than the country's Olympic teams had suffered in all previous Olympiads combined. It was also the first time since NBA professionals became eligible that the U.S. men's basketball team returned home without gold medals.

Because of this star line-up, the team's games usually featured pregame photos by the opposite team of their U.S. opponents — and idols.


The team won its games by huge margins, beating Croatia in the gold medal game by 32 points. Some have argued the U.S. players played slack defense, shrinking the victory margins[citation needed].


Stockton was the only Dream Team member to wear his NBA number in the Olympics (12), and the only one allowed to by international rules, which restrict player numbers to 4 through 15. All other Dream Team members normally wore numbers outside the allowable range.

This unheralded team, composed largely of players from the minor-league Continental Basketball Association, captured a bronze medal—considered a solid achievement given the team's complete lack of top-notch talent.

Dream Team IV

During the late 1990s, international basketball began to gather attention as more and more foreign players became stars in the NBA. Therefore, Dream Team IV had the enormous task of proving that American basketball was the best in the world. The new team that was assembled again featured NBA players, but this time few of them were considered to be true superstars, as several elite players elected not to participate. Since the team was more ordinary than a collection of the greatest ever to play, and not much better than other teams in the tournament, many fans do not believe that the name "Dream Team" should apply[citation needed] and instead use the term 2000 US Men's Basketball Team.

2004 US Men's Basketball Team

The humiliating outcome in 2002 prompted a number of NBA superstars to agree to join the team for the 2003 Tournament of the Americas, which the squad was required to participate in to qualify for the 2004 Summer Olympics. The team easily cruised to a first-place finish, earning it a spot in Athens, Greece the following summer. The 2004 Summer Olympics, officially known as the Games of the XXVIII Olympiad, were held in Athens, Greece, over a period of 17 days from August 13 to August 29, 2004. ...

However, the dominant team that competed in 2003 could not be kept together. Primarily due to security concerns, 10 of its 12 players elected not to participate in Athens, causing USA Basketball to scramble to fill their places. The revamped 2004 US Men's Basketball Team generally consisted of either young NBA players early in their careers, or veteran players thought to be somewhat beneath superstar status. The only established superstars on the team were Tim Duncan and Allen Iverson—not coincidentally, the only two players left from the 2003 roster.

Although this team was occasionally called a "Dream Team" because it was composed of NBA players, it is likely that the media will end the use of that nickname after its performance. Indeed, some media outlets took to calling it the "Nightmare Team." Many people criticized both Larry Brown and the players for a lack of dedication to the team. The 2004 US Men's Basketball Team was defeated by Italy by 17 points in an exhibition game in Cologne, Germany; two days later, also in Cologne, the US team needed a long Iverson three-pointer to keep its friendly game against Germany from going into overtime. For the very first time, the world saw that in fact a team composed of American players who played in the NBA was beatable. The vulnerability of the Americans was confirmed on August 15, 2004 when Puerto Rico defeated them 92–73 in the very first game of the 2004 Olympics in Athens. It was only the third Olympic basketball defeat ever in the history of the United States and the first one for a American team composed of professionals. Carlos Arroyo of Puerto Rico led the attack in the game, which suggested that the level of international basketball had caught up with that of the United States.

After winning close games against Greece and Australia, the U.S. team lost another game against Lithuania, dropping to 2–2 in the Olympic tournament.

Even though it managed to win easily against Angola, 89–53, because of the goal average rules 2004 US Men's Basketball Team entered the quarterfinal round in 4th place, the lowest seed of their group. The Americans faced undefeated Spain in their quarterfinal game and finally put up a dominant performance. Led by Stephon Marbury's 31 points, the 2004 US Men's Basketball Team defeated the Spaniards 102–94, eliminating them from medal contention. Stephon Xavier Marbury (born February 20, 1977 in Brooklyn, New York) is an American professional basketball player, currently playing point guard with the New York Knicks. ...


Any momentum gained from that victory was lost a game later, however, as the team was defeated by Argentina, led by Duncan's teammate Manu Ginobili, 89–81 in the semifinals, ending the Dream Team's lock on the gold medal. The 2004 US Men's Basketball Team ended the Olympics with a 104–96 win over Lithuania to win the bronze medal. It marked only the third time that an American team failed to win gold, and the first time for a American team composed of professionals. Before 2004, American teams had only lost two games in all previous Olympic tournaments, whereas in this one the American team lost three.

2006-2008 US Men's Basketball Team

Following the failure of the previous dream team, USA Basketball decided to move in a different direction. It appointed Jerry Colangelo to be solely responsible for selecting the team. Colangelo made it clear that he would ask players for a three-year commitment—the 2006 Worlds and the 2008 Summer Olympics. The same commitment is required of coaches, who are to be Mike Krzyzewski with assistants Jim Boeheim, Mike D'Antoni, and Nate McMillan. While some prominent players, such as Tim Duncan and Kevin Garnett have already stated that they do not plan to play for the team, superstars Kobe Bryant, LeBron James, Allen Iverson, and Shawn Marion have publicly announced their commitment for the 2006 Worlds and the 2008 Summer Olympics.
