1992 dream team vs. 2012 USA basketball team


So i read that Kobe Bryant said he thought the current 2012 team could be the original dream team. http://sports.yahoo.com/blogs/olympics-fourth-place-medal/kobe-bryant-team-usa-2012-played-dream-team-163639708--oly.html In my opinion Kobe has to be smokin something. I understand having confidence and needing to express that feeling but come on, really?

In case anyone forgot, here is the '92 teams roster: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1992_United_States_men's_Olympic_basketball_team (its about half way down the page) and here is the 2012 teams roster: http://www.usabasketball.com/mens/national/roster.html. I found it so laughable i thought i would bring it up for discussion within the B-edge community.

For the record my thoughts are that the 2012 team is very good but honestly look at the roster, its a few superstars (KD, lebron) a few almost superstars(Carmelo, D-will) and a bunch of other very good players(iggy, chandler). The dream team is just that, a dream team. Hell, even Christian Laettner was considered one of, if not the best college player at the time.

If a game were able to be played, Ewing and Robinson would eat Chandler alive. Chuckster and the Mailman would have killed Blake Griffin, Kevin Love and anyone else brave enough to play the four spot. At the wings you had an army of ELITE players to throw at the likes of Harden, Anthony, Kobe, Iggy, etc. And dont even get me started about the guards, no way in hell does Westbrook, Williams, Harden, and Kobe beat Stockton, Jordan, Magic, and Drexler.

Anyways, thats my take. Let the discussion begin.
