Which Dream Team Is Better? 2012 Or 1992?

From ESPN: LeBron James has joined Kobe Bryant in saying that he believes this year's Team USA Olympic men's basketball team could beat the 1992 Dream Team.
Days before the current U.S. squad takes the court in London, James made his boast in a recent television interview.
"As a competitor you never want to say that you will lose, no matter who you are going against," James told ABC News "Nightline" anchor Cynthia McFadden.

James did express his respect to the iconic 1992 team, which was led by Michael Jordan and included 11 future Hall of Famers. That team won its six Olympic games by an average of more than 43 points en route to capturing the gold medal in Barcelona.
"The '92 Dream Team paved the way for all of us ... We understand what they did for our game, but we also are big-time competitors as well, so if we got the opportunity to play them in a game we feel like we would win, too," James said.
The 1992 team had Michael Jordan, Magic Johnson, David Robinson, Larry Bird, Patrick Ewing, Karl Malone, John Stockton, Charles Barkley and several other talented players.
The 2012 basketball team has Kobe Bryant, LeBron James, Kevin Durant,  Carmelo Anthony, Chris Paul and a few more players.
The 1992 has many Hall of Famers on the team but the only 2 guaranteed Hall of Famers are Kobe and LeBron.
The 1992 team had a team and the 2012 team is made up of mostly individual ball hogs and it is possible that they may not even win the gold medal.
This one is easy to say: the 1992 Dream Team would kick ass on the 2012 team 


  1. Larry Bird something to the effect. they would win. We are older and haven't played in many years
