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.

The record for the most rebounds in a single game is 16, which is jointly held by three players - DeAndre Jordan, Tim Duncan and James Brewer.

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

Although Anthony's position at the top is not under threat, Kevin Durant, a member of Team USA's roster for the 2020 Tokyo Olympics, could rise as high as third all-time going by his average.
