2008 NBA Olympic “Redeem” Team

After the men’s basketball team walked away with only a bronze medal at the 2004 Summer Olympics, the U.S. team vowed to redeem itself at the 2008 games in Beijing. The team, dubbed “The Redeem Team,” included heavyweights Kobe Bryant, Carmelo Anthony, Dwyane Wade and Chris Paul — and the gold medal came back to America. (Photo: Streeter Lecka/Getty Images)
