Olympic rules changed in 1989 and the first professional NBA Olympic team was the 1992 Dream Team led by Michael Jordan.
NBA players first Olympics was the 1992 Summer Games in Barcelona and NHL players first Olympics was the 1998 Winter Games in Nagano.
1992 Dream team
The NBA is not an Olympic sport. Basketball is the sport but NBA players were allowed to play starting at the 1992. Prior to that NBA professional players were banned from competing and only amateurs could play in the Olympics.
NBA players play for one of the 30 NBA teams. They participate in basketball games and get paid for playing in them.
Twelve active players are allowed to be on an NBA roster during each individual game.
No, look at the NBA players, they are professional athletes and play in the Olympics.

Fifteen players is the maximum amount....5 starters...7 bench players and 3 reserves
They were referred to as "The Dream Team" because it was composed mostly of the top stars in the NBA. It was the first time that NBA players were eligible to play in the Olympics.
FIBA, the international basketball governing body, did not allow NBA players to participate in the Olympics until the 1992 Games in Barcelona. U.S Olympic basketball teams, prior to the 1992 Games, were made up of college players only.
you are allowed up to 15 people on an nba roster
The University of Kentucky has the most players that are in the NBA with 20 players. Duke University follows with 18 players in the NBA.
In the NBA a player is allowed up to 6 fouls. After a player has reached 6 fouls they're "fouled out" and cannot participate in the rest of the game.
NBA players do not need an education. If they are good, they will make the NBA. Thus, many NBA players do not have a college education.
NBA players with felonies
Florida, California, and Texas produce a lot of good NBA players, but I'm not for sure what state produces the MOST NBA players. duke has the most nba players in the nba now.
You are allowed to foul six times. However, once you get the sixth foul, you will be fouled out of the game and will not be allowed to participate for the rest of the game.
I believe it's unlimited. But only five can play at a time.
15 players. 12 players to attend games and 3 reserves ( players that would come to a game if a player was injured or could not attend the game)
An NBA team can have 15 players, but only 12 can be activated per game. And only 5 players from each team are allowed on the court at a time.
