The Dream Team name was given to the 1992 Olympic team that won the 1992 Gold medal In Barcelona. They were the first team to feature NBA players; blowing teams out by 44 points and going 8-0. Also, they were inducted into the Basketball Hall of Fame as a team in 2010, and as of 2011, 11 of the 12 players and three of the four coaches on the team are in the Basketball Hall of Fame as individuals. As a kid and only being 7 years of age, my memory isn't too well to remember all the games these guys played, but, what I do know is that they left it all on the court and played every game like it was their last. Growing up and being a Bulls fan, seeing what Jordan used to do to the guys that he paired up with on the Dream Team was amazing, but to team up with Charles Barkley, Patrick Ewing, David Robinson, Clyde Drexler, Magic Johnson and a bunch of other NBA stars, it was meant for them to win it all. How do you stop a team of All Stars? Seeing that they went 8-0 there, was no stopping them.
20 years ago the best sports team was put together, The Dream Team. On June 13th The Dream Team is set to premiere on NBA TV at 9 p.m. Be sure to tune in to some great basketball and sports history.
