Created: July 8, 2009, 2:14 PM

Who makes the cut for SportsNation's dream team?

How would your Team USA look for 2010 and 2012, SportsNation?

The American basketball brand made a comeback in Beijing after a string of international disappointments, restoring some of the luster earned by the original Dream Team in Barcelona all those years ago.

But with news that Mike Krzyzewski is signing on for both the 2010 World Championship in Turkey and the 2012 Olympics in London, should we get the entire band back together?

We've assembled 40 likely candidates for international competition over the next three years, but putting together a roster of 12 is up to you. Rank your top 12 candidates (or all 40, if you want some alternates) for SportsNation's dream team.

How are the points calculated?
On a poll with 10 options, a No.1 ranking equals 10 points, a No.2 ranking equals 9 points, etc. The item with the most points will be ranked first.
