“Maybe the greatest team ever assembled in team sports” – today, these words by commentator Marv Albert are regarded as something natural today, only without “maybe”.
11 future Hall of Famers and one college star were to become the greatest team in basketball.
The 1992 United States men’s Olympic basketball team, nicknamed the “Dream Team”, was the first American Olympic team to feature active NBA players.
Described by American journalists as the greatest sports team ever assembled, it defeated its opponents by an average of almost 44 points en route to the gold medal against Croatia at the 1992 Summer Olympics held in Barcelona.
The original Dream Team consisted of Christian Laettner, David Robinson, Patrick Ewing, Larry Bird, Scottie Pippen, Michael Jordan, Clyde Drexler, Karl Malone, John Stockton, Chris Mullin, Charles Barkley, and Magic Johnson.
