Several of America’s biggest NBA stars won’t be heading to Rio for the Summer Olympics this year for reasons including (but certainly not limited to) concerns over the Zika virus. While that’s disappointing news for basketball fans, Team USA will still have a very impressive roster when they go for their third straight gold medal at the summer Games.

On Monday, that roster was finalized and submitted for approval. You can see it in full below:

Carmelo Anthony

Harrison Barnes

Jimmy Butler

DeMarcus Cousins

DeMar DeRozan

Kevin Durant

Paul George

Draymond Green

Kyrie Irving

DeAndre Jordan

Kyle Lowry

Klay Thompson

See? That’s a pretty good team right there.

To celebrate their selections, most of USA players took to Instagram to share photos of their jerseys and the numbers they’ll be wearing in Rio. Unfortunately, the jerseys are nothing special if you ask me, but you can go ahead and judge for yourself…
