USA Dream Team II (1994) – The Forgotten Ones (VIDEO)


For the 1994 FIBA World Championship (Canada), the U.S. assembled a team, named “Dream Team 2”. This was an entirely new roster, as USA Basketball elected to showcase stars who were not present at the 1992 Olympics.

The team had Derrick Coleman, Joe Dumars, Kevin Johnson, Larry Johnson, Shawn Kemp, Dan Majerle, Reggie Miller, Alonzo Mourning, Shaquille O’Neal, Mark Price, Steve Smith and Dominique Wilkins on its roster.

Coached by Don Nelson of the Golden State Warriors, this team easily captured the gold medal in tournament play.

Years later, after Shaquille O’Neal retired, he said that “Dream Team 2” could’ve beaten the original dream team. Judging by the highlights below, Shaq may have been right.
