Roughly two weeks after the 2011-12 NBA Season wrapped up, the league’s brightest stars convened in Las Vegas for Team USA Training Camp, led by legendary basketball coach Mike Krzyzewski. During the practices, some notable USA-inspired shoes were spotted, like the Nike Lunar Hyperdunk, the Nike Zoom Kobe VII, and Nike Zoom KD IV, and from Jordan Brand’s side, the Jordan Melo M8 and the Jordan CP3.V. The lone non-Nike addition was the adidas Crazy Light 2, worn by Eric Gordon, but don’t count on seeing the Crazy Light 2 during the Olympics because Gordon was not selected to participate for Team USA during the London Olympics. Of course, USA Basketball at the Olympics will be a Nike-dominated affair, as we’ve already unveiled to you the Team USAB Hyper Elite uniforms back in February. We’ve got a nice recap of the Team USA practice below as well as the finalized Team USA Roster, so take a look and let us know which NBA star will shine the brightest next month! Photos: ESPN

If yall didnt check out usa vs korea 2008 olympics... USA dominated korea....literally all they did was dunks and won by 30 points. I am saying this as a fellow korean american. It was embarrasing, really.
Waat didnt even kno CP had an Olympic shoe and they look nice wow 4/4? I like how they purposely made LeBron a low top ha ha good ol marketing.
@JoelZimmerman Dude.....what are you talking about??? If you're talking about the last pic....thats his right leg so the medial side of the right shoe is showing lol
@SneakerCraze He is talking about his socks.
