In the midst of NBA playoffs, the basketball minds in our country can't think of much but the potential O'Brien Trophy holder. 

But, come July, everyones eyes will be glued to the U.S. men's basketball team in the Olympics, where all these playoff foes come together as one team to take home the biggest prize of all.
