1992 U.S. Men's Olympic Dream Team. (Photo: USOC)April 16, 2009: The 1992 U.S. Olympic Men's Basketball Team, better known as the "Dream Team" with such players as Earvin "Magic" Johnson, Larry Bird, Michael Jordan and Charles Barkley, heads a list of individuals and teams who were named as nominees for the U.S. Olympic Hall of Fame Class of 2009. The nominees were unveiled by the U.S. Olympic Committee and Allstate Insurance, which is the presenting sponsor of the Olympic Hall of Fame, in Chicago. The full nominee list includes 15 individuals, five teams and five Paralympians. Individuals can cast their votes for the class of 2009 class now through June 16 at www.Teamusa.org. The inducted class will include five individuals, one team and one Paralympian, as well as three additional individuals: a coach, veteran and special contributor. The inductees will be revealed in early July and will be honored at a ceremony on August 12 in Chicago. This year's event supports the move to have Chicago named as the host city for the 2016 Summer Games. "We are very excited for the U.S. Olympic Hall of Fame, presented by Allstate, to return to Chicago for the fourth time," Patrick Ryan, Chicago 2016 chairman and CEO, said in a statement. "Chicago is a city that truly embraces the Olympic Movement, and to have a Chicago company like Allstate involved in celebrating historic Olympic and Paralympic achievements showcases the broad support our city has for the movement." The charter class of the U.S. Olympic Hall of Fame was enshrined in 1983, which included Cassius Clay, Peggy Fleming, Jesse Owens, Wilma Rudolph, Mark Spitz, and the 1980 "Miracle on Ice" U.S. Olympic Men's Hockey Team. In 2004, after a 12-year hiatus, the U.S. Olympic Hall of Fame was revived through the support of Allstate Insurance as the presenting sponsor.
