Barcelona, 1992. In the version of this story we're all too familiar with, the storyline follows a who's who of NBA mega-legends, decked out in the good old red, white and blue, absolutely oblerating the competition, and cruising their way to Olympic gold in the process. On the podium just to the right though, stood a team outfitted head to toe in tie-dye, a cartoon skeleton, mid-bashout, emblazoned across their chests. As you might expect, that [...]

I feel like the majority of us were still picking our nose and eating it when the Dream Team was first assembled. As the "finest team of basketball players ever assembled," the Dream Team made history by annihilating the global competition in the '92 Olympics by a regular margin of 40 points. We've all heard the stories of opposing players asking for autographs during the game, and players on the sidelines taking pictures, but it seems as though this recent documentary will reveal even more about this historic series of events. Combining personal interviews with the players with archival footage [...]

The 1992 Olympic Men's Basketball Team was unlike any team that had come before or after it. There were hall of fame players at every position, hall of fame players on the bench, hall of fame coaches, internal rivalries, and external pressure to not fail as the eyes of the world watched in amazement. Twenty years ago in Barcelona, they put on a show the world will never forget. This oral history of the Dream Team is a nice companion piece to the Dream Team documentary . We were [...]
The Dream Team is a documentary about the legendary 1992 USA Olympic basketball team that featured an impressive 11 hall of fame players in the prime of their careers. Three out of the four coaches are in the hall of fame and the team itself has even been enshrined. They dominated the Olympics in a way that no other team has. About the only thing the team did wrong was pick Duke's Christian Laettner over LSU's Shaquille O'Neal for the obligatory amateur player, which was justifiable at the time. The doc [...]
