2010 FIBA World Championship

Gold Medal

With six players 22 years or younger, Team USA was considered too young and too inexperienced to capture gold at the 2010 FIBA World Championship in Turkey. But boy, did they prove people wrong. The Americans, led by Oklahoma City Thunder star Kevin Durant, dominated the international competition, going 9-0 during the tournament and capturing the U.S.'s first world championship gold medal since 1994.
