Tucked away in a back corner of Wynn is a little slice of heaven for the NBA basketball fan.

Just beyond the Tower Suites lobby in a somewhat secluded hallway is an impressive display of USA Basketball memorabilia. There are autographed jerseys, shoes, pictures, and even three gold medals from the 2008 and 2012 Olympics. It's all cased behind a big glass window, but that didn't stop us from getting up close and personal with the incredible basketball relics (pardon the fingerprints).

Las Vegas has turned into somewhat of a hub for USA Basketball holding camps and exhibition games so it's not surprising to find the display here. But, inside Wynn? In an area no one will ever find unless actively seeking it out? Seems odd.

We should note as well that this is an exhibit for the modern basketball fan. You won't find any Michael Jordan, Magic Johnson, or collectibles from anyone else on the original Dream Team. But, if you would enjoy getting a glimpse of a piece of recent USA Basketball history, like Kevin Durant's shoes, this is a must see.

Just make sure you you grab a map of the Wynn before you seek out the display, otherwise you'll be searching for a needle in a haystack. But, the needle's well worth finding for the avid basketball fan. It'll be on view through October.
