Dream Team: From gold to aluminum (cans)

May, 16, 2012
The stars of the Dream Team. We've seen their faces countless times.

But not like this.

With the 2012 London Olympics coming soon, a handful of members of the 1992 U.S. Men's Basketball Team will show a good deal of can-do (sorry), finding their faces on a series of soda cans. Yes, players Larry Bird, Patrick Ewing, Magic Johnson, Scottie Pippen and David Robinson are featured on Sunkist, 7UP, A&W, Canada Dry and Sun Drop cans, respectively -- all of which hit stores Tuesday.

Here's an up-close look at all five.
