Team USA Basketball is nearing the end of Training Camp in Las Vegas, as the final roster of 12 works out the last few kinks before moving forward to the World Basketball Festival later this week. Along with a practice session, the NBA stars took time to take some official Media Day photos, where LeBron James and Kobe Bryant stood proudly wearing the Team USA ‘Away’ uniforms. Some of Team USA members are teammates in real life, like the Knicks’ Carmelo Anthony and the league’s Defensive Player of the Year in Tyson Chandler as well as the OKC Thunder trio of KD, Westbrook, and Harden. More of the official media day photos as well as a nice recap of their practice below, so take a look and keep in tune to Sneaker News for more Team USA coverage!

Dreams of all types will be realized this August in London as the world stage gears up for the 2012 Summer Olympic Games. During this grand occasion, Nike makes a concerted effort to pay tribute to its greatest athletes of the world, and there may be no better grouping than the 1992 Dream Team that dominated the game of basketball. We’ve seen quite a few impressive products thus far, like last night’s Gold Medal Pack and the NSW Dream Team Collection, but Nike has also chosen to go the simple route by producing this sick pack of NSW staples in the Air Force 1 Low and Dunk High, representing the iconic ’92 squad and the city that hosted the Dream Team to the top of the podium.

Last night, we gave you a quick teaser look at the two Dunk High releases; the USA Dunk High features a tonal red package with rip-stop nylon on the upper and the ‘USA’ tongue label, while the complementary Barcelona version matched Black and Red synthetic leather uppers with a yellow tongue. The Air Force 1 USA adopts a solid Navy upper with a regal Metallic Gold swoosh and the all-American gum outsole, while the Barcelona pair uses its own rendition of tonal red with a faux carbon fiber at the heel. These are likely to drop during the Fall 2012 season in time for the Games, so take a look at the gallery below and we’ll keep you updated with release information. Photos: kumastock
