He´s talking the Barkley on TNT, the Jordan that owns the Bobcats, the Bird that was in Indiana, and all those now... then... maybe the 2012 team can win...
I´ll give you Laettner though :P

Yeah Barkley, Malone and MJ were in their prime. Robinson, Mullin etc. They would have had no chance. Dream Team all the way!

I actually do think the '12 would give the dream team a run for there money. Im not sure it would be as much of a slam dunk as people think...and its one of those things we will never know. It's really any one's guess. International basketball has gotten a lot more competitive over the years so the competition is tougher. I just don't know...my head hurts.

the only edge this team would have would be with Lebron just because of pure skills.

all the Dream Team would need to call is Magic posting up Chris Paul and no doubt Jordan would go insane against Kobe.

the bigs are no brainers too. advantage Dream Team all the way

I actually think barkley and malone would give james fits. Both were very athletic and strong as hell. Also don't forget pippen as a defender.

Exactly, Barkley, Malone, Pippen, MJ, Stockton, DRob, Ewing, Cylde, Mullen.....all in thier prime.

Older Magic and Bird but even those guys are top 10 players ALL TIME. Sorry but the 12' team wouldn't stand a chance against that team.

I think the real debate is whether or not Dream Team 2 was better than Dream Team 1.

Mitch Richmond
David Robinson
John Stockton
Shaquille O'Neal
Gary Payton
Scottie Pippen
Karl Malone
Reggie Miller
Hakeem Olajuwon
Charles Barkley
Anfernee Hardaway
Grant Hill

Shaq, Admiral, Dream, Malone, and Barkley...now that is the greatest front line ever assembled. It didn't have Jordan, but they replaced the over the hill Bird and Magic with some real ballers in Grant Hill, Penny, and Payton. I would rather have had Mullen, but Reggie Miller isn't chopped liver. The most tantalizing line up would feature Shaq at the 5 with Dream/Admiral prowling around at the 4 or if you wanted to just deny everything at the rim pair up Robinson and Olajuwon together for the greatest block party every thrown.

The edge inside for the original dream team would be overwhelming. Impossible to match. That's the end.

And we're not even talking about Magic posting up Chris Paul, Jordan chewing up Kobe and spitting him out (1992 Jordan . . . give me a break), or Pippen bottling up LBJ.

Bird can lay down and ice his back on defense. Karl Malone would make sure nobody got layups.

Since dear old Kobe cannot possibly substantiate his claim, he can blow all the smoke he wants. The Dream Team is the best basketball team ‘ever’ assembled, bar none, no comparison, you must be talking outta you’re a$$ --- I’m out.

Ouch! Maybe he'll add an asterisk by his comment.

exactly---
maybe if dwight was part of the 2012 team was a better match.... todays team maybe is more athletic overall... but original team was better shooter too.. and arguably with more HUEVOS!! due the softness of actuall rules, maybe one or two 2012 players end crying in the tunel... oh btw, remeber, is with FIBA rules and oficials, not the ones who call these year semis, and finals...

Jordan heard this and laughed his butt off, he really busted out laughing he said (Not one of the smartest things Bryant has said his response). Barkley responded as well. Bird said yeah they would beat us, I have not played in 20 some odd years his response.

Quote of the Day: Larry Bird on Dream Team vs. 2012 “rivalry”

“They probably could (beat us). I haven’t played in 20 years and we’re all old now.”

—Larry Bird, the Hall of Fame player and Dream Team member, on whether the 2012 USA Olympic Team could beat his Dream Team.

Probably the smartest thing anyone has said about this “rivalry.” It’s time to move on.

Thanks to the Pacers for the quote.
