Since the Summer Olympics well underway in Rio, 2K has released a new trailer for NBA 2K17 featuring two of the United States’ Olympic squads. The team that is there now, and the “Dream Team” which is a collection of the greatest basketball players that 1992 had to offer (who are basically unstoppable). Take a look below.

We don’t get to see too much real basketball action in the video. However, we do get the pre-game national anthem and some player-specific celebrations. Most importantly, for fans, it teases the potential epic matchup that NBA 2K17 makes possible, where you could play a game between the 1992 USA Dream Team and this year’s US men’s national team (which we will point out doesn’t get a sweet nickname).

The latter, being comprised entirely of current-day NBA stars, is included in the game alongside head coach Mike Krzyzewski. But it also features the complete Dream Team, in addition to Michael Jordan, Patrick Ewing, Scottie Pippen, Magic Johnson, Larry Bird, and Karl Malone, this marks the first time Charles Barkley has been in a 2K game, and rightly so. In the 1992 games Barkley averaged the most points per game.

So if you want to play as the 1992 Dream Team you’ll need to preorder the game in order to have access to them. So don’t delay.
