What does the term "Redeem Team 2.0" mean in the world of basketball? What is meant by "Redeem Team 2.0"?

In 2004, the US Men's Olympic basketball team, led by Allen Iverson and Tim Duncan, turned in one of the most disappointing performances in the history of US basketball, as they ended up with the bronze medal.

LeBron James was on the Olympics original Redeem Team.  Will there be a 2.0 version?The team lost three games in the tournament, including their semi-match game against Argentina.

In 2008, the "Redeem Team" was formed. This team, led by the likes of LeBron James, Kobe Bryant and Dwyane Wade, was tasked with reclaiming the USA's standing as the top basketball nation in the world by taking home the gold medal.

The team was successful, defeating Spain in the gold medal game.


After the USA's lacklustre performance in the 2023 FIBA World Cup, LeBron James has apparently started to get the top US basketball players on board with the idea of the "Redeem Team 2.0", which would unite in the summer of 2024.

The 2024 Summer Olympics are in Paris, France, and the "Redeem Team 2.0" would be travelling there to win the gold medal.

This team would very likely include the likes of LeBron James, Steph Curry, Kevin Durant, Kyrie Irving, Klay Thompson and more.

This would almost certainly be LeBron's last international appearance for the United States, so the stakes would be extremely high.


The first "Redeem Team" brought home the gold medal - can "Redeem Team 2.0" do the same?
