Since NBA players represent Team USA, only one team has been able to win an Olympic gold medal besides the United States. Its leader was Manu Ginobili. The Hall of Famer and four-time NBA champion was the key player for the Argentinians’ Golden Generation miracle in 2004, scoring 29 against the U.S. in the semifinal game. Hard to find a player as successful in both NBA and FIBA competitions.
