Team USA: All-time leaders for career points in Olympics history

Having played in 31 games through four Olympics, both of which are USA Basketball records in the men's category, Carmelo Anthony sits atop Team USA's all-time leaderboard for career points in the Olympics.

He has 336 points to his name, which includes Team USA's single-game scoring record of 37 points against Nigeria in the 2012 Olympics in London.

That said, here's a look at the top 10 players for all-time scorers for Team USA in Olympics history:

Rank Player Career points Career average Olympics played
1. Carmelo Anthony 336 10.8 2016, 2012, 2008, 2004
2. Kevin Durant 311 19.4 2016, 2012
3. LeBron James 273 11.4 2012, 2008, 2004
4. David Robinson 270 11.3 1996, 1992, 1988
5. Michael Jordan 256 16.0 1992, 1984
6. Charles Barkley 231 15.4 1996, 1992
7. Chris Mullin 196 12.3 1992, 1984
8. Dwyane Wade 186 11.6 2008, 2004
9. Karl Malone 171 10.7 1996, 1992
10. Scottie Pippen 170 10.6 1996, 1992

Given his Olympics average of 19.6 points per game, Kevin Durant will surely pass Anthony after playing at Tokyo to rise to the top spot of the all-time leaderboard for most career points for Team USA.

With Durant being the most experienced player on the Team USA roster for the Tokyo Olympics and no other player having played more than one previous Olympics, no other spot on the all-time chart is under threat.
