Team USA: All-time leaders for career rebounds 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 rebounds in the Olympics.

In a close second spot is David Robinson, a FIBA Hall of Famer whose 54 rebounds in 1988 is the fifth-most by a Team USA player over the course of a single Olympics.
