Remembering the greatest team ever assembled, 92′ Dream Team.
This year marks the 25th anniversary of the “Real Dream Team”.
After being defeated by the Soviet Union, 82-76, in the 1988 Seoul Olympics, America did the only thing they could do; put in a cheat code, then assemble the greatest team ever!!
Prior to the ’92 Olympics, the United States played at a handicap, by only playing with collegiate athletes. The US began to publicly acknowledge the notion of sparring with professional players.
“Personally, I would like more of a chance to compete, I’m also an advocate of professionals playing in the Olympics.” Words uttered by USA’s head coach, and Former Georgetown Hoyas coach, John Thompson.
Since the United States evened the playing field by playing their elite professional players, its record is an astonishing 53-3. Let’s acknowledge the team that ignited all, the “92′ Dream Team.” Undoubtedly the greatest team ever.
