The NBA was founded in New York City in 1946 and has entertained fans over the decades with incredible feats of athleticism, colorful characters, and larger-than-life personalities.

Every year some of the best players in the league gather together to participate in the NBA All-Star game. But many basketball historians say the greatest squad to ever play together was the 1992 Olympic Dream Team. This was the first time professional players from the NBA were allowed to compete in the Olympics. Prior to this, the International Basketball Federation banned NBA players. But in 1988, the United States' team was composed of amateurs and only took home the bronze medal. It was the United States' worst finish in Olympic basketball history, and the rules were changed ahead of the 1992 Olympics. This squad was composed of some of the best basketball players, including Michael Jordan, Larry Bird, and Charles Barkley. As a nod to when only amateurs could play, the team added one college player: Christian Laettner, who played at Duke University. This team beat its opponents by an average of 44 points and defeated Croatia to take home the gold medal.
