28. Michael Redd Wins Olympic Gold

It doesn’t get much bigger in the world of sport than to win an Olympic gold medal, but that’s exactly what Michael Redd did as a representative of the Milwaukee Bucks at the Beijing Olympics in 2008.

Redd was selected for the star-studded US team off the back of the first season where his peak career numbers started to decline with the Bucks. Redd still offered the team a nice scoring option off the bench, a perfect complement to a roster that included the likes of Kobe Bryant, Dwyane Wade, LeBron James and Jason Kidd.

Redd didn’t have the opportunity to play in the gold medal decider against Spain, but played in all seven matches leading up to that. The US avenged their failure from the Athens Olympics four years earlier, and a Milwaukee Buck found himself on the top of the Olympic podium.
