    Dream Team VS 2012

    Just wondering your thoughts on Kobe and Lebron's quotes that they could beat the real dream team?  I know any team can win a game when you get to that talent level.  Personally I think the original dream team would beat 2012  eight games to two, or maybe even nine games to one in a ten game series. 

    BTW in case you didn't know you can watch the olympics live via streaming video as I am watching the US basketball team VS France now. http://www.nbcolympics.com/liveextra/video-watch.html?video=mens-group-a-united-states-vs-france

    One thing I have noticed is the NBA players are not getting the "superstar" calls.  Thats kind of refreshing to see them play by the same rules the regular guys play by.  Chris Paul just got called for palming, you could see the look of disbelief on his face.

    On another note,  Rondo could have helped this team a lot.  Someone that gets the ball to open guys.  Of course I am talking about the Rondo at the end of last year and the playoffs.

    If you have comcast cable it is on channel 48.  This channel was called Versus, (where you watch some hockey games when they weren't on NESN). 

    Although, the current US team is talented they wouldn't win many games against the Dream Team.  I believe that some of the games wouldn't even be close.

    Dream team was far superior then 2012 team. Dream team had top 3 players of all time, Bird-Jordan and Magic .

    2012 team will not win the Gold maybe Silver but will lose at least 1 game.I hereby pick Argentina or Spain will win the Gold.

    Run

    We don't have Comcast in my neck of the woods.  I agree there would probably be some blowouts.

    I think we will win it. We SHOULD win it.  The only way we lose is if Kobe goes into one of his Me Ball modes and shoots us out of it.  I think coach would get him about before he does it though.

    wow a charging foul on Lebron.  He couldn't believe.  It was the right call and would never be called in the NBA.

    I have it more awesome.  No announcers at all.  That is great.  Rivers would be ok though.

    Too bad thee officiating isn't like this in the NBA.  I wish the called the palming, traveling, etc like they should. Of the many things Kobe gets by with,  the one that bothers me the most is how he is allowed to pivot and by the time he is through dancing around and getting the position he wants, his original pivot foot is 6 feet from where it started.

    But remember, "I know how to play basketball, and I don't foul out of games."

    That was classic!!  He got NONE called on him after that "statement"

    Well Doc said tonight that with both teams in their prime that the real Dream Team would win.  He didn't want to insult them and say how bad.


    BTW why is Kobe starting? Probably because his ego couldn't handle it.  Put Westbrook with Paul and think how fast we would be.  Durant andd Lebron are definitely the Players on this team.  I would be worried without either one of them.

    You just have to look at the matchups...Malone/Robinson would CRUSH Love/Chandler. The original dream team also had the ability to go really big, or really small depending on the situation. The current guys can't do that. Honestly, I'd give the original team playing today a chance to put up at least 40 against these guys. Granted the current team would put up close to 200, but with the pure shooting strokes some of those guys had...that doesn't go away.

    The '92 team would never have allowed Lithuania, or anyone else, to play them that close. Hopefully this game serves as a wakeup call that the US needs to take its opponents seriously. I could definitely see the US losing to Argentina, Spain, undefeated Russia, even Brazil (because of its size up front), although the US still obviously remains the favorite to win gold. I just don't expect utter domination in the knockout rounds.

    I was just saying that the guys from the 92 team were so good, they would still be able to manage 40 points against this team if the 92 team faced the 2012 team today, in 2012. They would have no chance of winning obviously, they haven't actually played in 10-15 years each and would get run up and down the floor. But I think they'd manage to put up some scoring .

    Ahh, I get it now.  Just thinking about it,  I am not sure how much they could score. That many years it might be difficult to deal with that speed.    Funny we are sitting here talking about how the Dream Team would fare after 15 years of inactivity.  I know one thing for sure. If 92 team played 1012 at their peaks and I had to bet my house,  I know where my money would be.

    Oh without a doubt. But I think that pure shooting from Bird, Mullin, etc...that doesn't go away. they may not get a single layup...almost definitely no dunks....maybe no 3's at all...but that midrange straight up shooting ability is something you have forever.
