But we still have a few days until the competition gets under way, so while we wait, let's take a trip down memory lane to remember what's happened in the NBA since Team USA's last loss all those years ago.
Below is a timeline of the league's biggest and most memorable moments since Team USA suffered its last loss 13 years ago: Kevin Garnett and Ray Allen were traded to the Celtics ahead of the 2008 season, and together with Paul Pierce they formed one of the first superteams of the modern era.
Curry put together a phenomenal season to win his first MVP Award, and then led his team to the franchise's first title since 1975.
After 20 seasons and five titles, he ended his career with a 60-point effort against the Jazz in his final game, becoming the oldest player in NBA history to score 60 points.
They also made history as the first team to complete a season without losing consecutive games.
In the second meeting between the two teams in the Finals, the Warriors took a 3-1 lead over the Cavaliers, and looked to be cruising toward their second straight title and the completion of one of the greatest seasons in NBA history.
Westbrook has since gone on to average triple doubles in each of the last two seasons as well, becoming the first player in NBA history to average a triple-double in three straight seasons.
