At the 2004 Summer Olympics in Athens, Greece, an event that always seemed like a certainty as to who would win gold became anything but.
The United States basketball team was made up of some of the best players in the world, but struggled to gel, excel, and win.
Coached by Larry Brown and made up of superstars such as Allen Iverson, Dwyane Wade, LeBron James, Carmelo Anthony and Tim Duncan, the group struggled with outside shooting, defense, pace and more, limping to a bronze medal, losing three times in eight games.
“It was ugly to watch,” Dwayne Wade explained in the latest trailer for The Redeem Team. “It was terrible to be a part of it.”
Needing redemption, Team USA revamped the staff and player selection process in an effort to regain something they thought they should never have lost.
The 2008 United States basketball team was aptly nicknamed “The Redeem Team”.
Led by former Duke coach Mike Krzyzewski, the team consisted of Kobe Bryant, LeBron James, Dwyane Wade, Chris Paul, Carmelo Anthony, Jason Kidd, Dwight Howard, Deron Williams, Chris Bosh, Carlos Boozer, Tayshaun Prince and Michael Redd.
Netflix has produced a documentary about the team, dropping the first trailer for The Redeem Team today.
