The 2012 United States Men’s Olympic Basketball team may not be the “Dream Team,” but they’ll certainly look the part this afternoon.

According to a tweet and Instagram photo from LeBron James, the USA will take the court in their exhibition game against Argentina in Barcelona wearing jerseys that harken back to the days of Michael Jordan, Magic Johnson, and Larry Bird. Click the link in the tweet below to see the uniform.

This year marks the 20-year anniversary of the Dream Team – the first Olympic basketball team to feature NBA players. The team made headlines on and off the court at the 1992 Olympics in Barcelona, steamrolling all opponents en route to a gold medal.
