Nike released the new jerseys that Team USA will be wearing during the 2012 Summer Olyimpic in London at a showcase in New York on Tuesday.

The new unis feature a pyramid-shaped USA logo that is definitaly not as cool as this logo, which the O.G Dream Team wore on these uniforms back in '92.  Perhaps the new logo is a bit classier than graffitti stlye font that the 1996 Olympic Team wore.

In a move to honor the 20th anniversary of the original Dream Team's gold at Barcelona, Nike also announced that it would release a comprised of the Air Force 180 (worn by Barkley in '92), Air More Uptempo (worn by Pippen in '96), Shox BB4 (worn when Vince Carter tea-bagged Frederick Weiss in 2000, Air Zoom Huarache 2K4 and Air Force 1 Hi.

Earlier this month the Jordan Brand announced that it will released the Air Jordan VI in Olympic colors on July 7th, which were worn during the 2000 Olympics by Ray Allen. While these are amazing, they aren't the ones that MJ wore in '92, we wore the VIIs.

The Jordan Brand also recently announced that they will be releasing these Air Jordan IVs in Knicks colors, look for J.R. Smith to rock them when they drop.

The Pippens (top left), Barkleys (top right) and Vince Carters (bottom right) are among the kicks in Nike's 2012 Olympic collection.

The Olympic Air Jordan VIs go on sale on July 7th
