2. Dwyane Wade
1 Gold Medal, 1 Bronze Medal
Dubbed “The Redeem Team” for avenging the subpar performance of the bronze-winning 2004 squad, the 2008 U.S. Men’s basketball team evoked memories of the original Dream Team, sweeping undefeated through the entire Olympic tournament. At the heart of this run was Wade, whose leadership and heady play helped the Americans reclaim the mantle of world basketball superiority. This perennial NBA All-Star is poised to add a second gold medal to his collection in London.
