Teams in competition:

Since basketball became an official Olympic sport in 1936 the game has drawn more fans at every Olympics.

In the past few decades, Europe has joined America in its mania for basketball fever, as the level of play outside the US threatens to outshine top teams where the sport was born. The international level of play is top notch and the games are fun to watch even if you're not a BBall fanatic.

In 2012, watch for the U.S. to defend its gold medal standing at the top of the heap in world basketball with another "dream team" starting lineup including LeBron James, Dwayne Wade, Kobe Bryant, Blake Griffin, Kevin Durant, and more superstars of the NBA.
