From September 1, 2006 to September 11, 2019. No less than 13 years and 10 days for the best run of the United States national team, which finally bit the dust against France in Dongguan (79-89). Along the way, three Olympic golds (2008, 2012 and 2016) and two world titles (2010 and 2014). In total, 58 official victories, including the five of this infamous tournament in China, for a team that this time did miss its great figures.

The balance of Team USA also includes the 10 pre-Olympic games that had to be played in 2007. Then, Mike Krzyzewski was able to count on Kobe Bryant, LeBron James or Carmelo Anthony, key players for his resounding successes later. In Beijing 2008, only Spain put in trouble in the final (118-107) to that select bouquet of stars.

Two years later, at the World Cup in Turkey, Kevin Durant assumed leadership in a tournament where Russia and Lithuania planted more opposition than the host team itself in the duel for the title (81-64). In any case, the superiority on the scoreboard would still be reflected with greater evidence in the next two championships.

In the London Games, that overwhelming 156-73 against Nigeria occurred and that Dream Team finished with an average advantage of 32.1 points. In the World Cup in Spain, that number increased to 33.0 points, thanks to the beating of Serbia in the very final (129-92). The Rio Games, however, were a small step back in their tyranny, with those sweating victories against Serbia (94-91) and France (100-97). However, in the fight for gold, Coach K's team erased the plavi from the map (96-66).

That August 21, 2016 was the last time the United States was able to gather its best NBA troops. After all the resignations and injuries Gregg Popovich had to bet on a group of young people and middle class players. In fact, among his 12 summoned only Kemba Walker was chosen on occasion among the NBA elite. It was this year, when he was included in the third best quintet. A team where paradoxically, there was also Rudy Gobert, the great ogre for Team USA in Beijing.
