The ‘Dream Team’ squad that represented the USA in men’s basketball at the 1992 Olympics in Barcelona is considered by many to be the greatest sports team ever assembled, but does the current crop of b-ball Olympians have a leg up on them? Team member Kobe Bryant seems to think so, recently claiming in an interview that the 2012 USA Olympic basketball team would beat the 1992 Dream Team in a head to head game. Ever the competitor Michael Jordan heartily disagreed, saying he “absolutely laughed” at Kobe’s claims and that “For him to compare those two teams is not one of the smarter things he ever could have done.” It’s a question that we can never really answer, but for what it’s worth ESPN analysts ran some 10,000 computer simulations of the matchup, giving the 1992 team the W 53.1 percent of the time by a mere one point margin on average. Let us know what you think of the comparison in the comments and stick with us for more MJ news. via ESPN
