Michael Redd – 2008 Olympics
The only player since Ray Allen in 2000 to break through to be a part of a US Olympic team while at the peak of his powers with the Bucks, Michael Redd went to Beijing in 2008 as a member of arguably the most talented US Olympic squad since the Dream Team.
Redd was never going to be asked to play a leading role with the likes of LeBron James, Kobe Bryant, Dwyane Wade and Carmelo Anthony playing close to their primes, but when asked to come in and make shots, Redd did just that. The US cruised to a gold medal win.
Redd averaged 3.1 points per game in a bit-part role, with his best performance saved for a game with the event’s hosts, China, in which the Bucks put up nine points and three rebounds.
Redd was a Buck for close to the entirety of his career, only playing elsewhere for his final season when he played 53 games with the Phoenix Suns.
