Kevin Durant

The three-time defending NBA scoring champ makes his Olympic debut after competing for Team USA at the 2010 FIBA world championships. At worlds, Durant led the team in scoring (22.8 per game) as it captured its first world championship since 1994. To repeat as Olympic gold medalists and overcome a lack of size and depth in the frontcourt, Team USA will need a big performance from the 23-year-old Durant and his deadly shooting stroke.
