There's no other way to put it: Team USA dominates Olympic men's basketball.

The American men have won four straight gold medals dating back to 2008, and have a record of 16 overall golds since the sport debuted in 1936.

But things could be a bit more difficult in 2024 as the rest of the world continues developing legitimate star players. Former NBA MVPs Nikola Jokic (Serbia) and Giannis Antetokounmpo (Greece) will battle for glory in Paris this summer, as well as young stars Victor Wembanyama (France) and Shai Gilgeous-Alexander (Canada).

Team USA is still loaded with NBA talent, but the margin for error is slimmer than it has been in arguably decades. The Stars and Stripes will be led by a veteran roster of LeBron James, Steph Curry and Kevin Durant, among others.
