The Dream Team Documentary Was Worth Watching

11 Hall of Famers on one team. And then Christian Laettner. You tend to forget how great of a team "The Dream Team" was because they made it look so easy and simple when they won the 1992 Gold Medal. It's almost hard to believe it's been 20 years. Charles Barkley was skinny and still running his mouth with memorable quotes. Magic had just broken the news he had HIV. Jordan was unstoppable. Chris Mullin had his patented flat top. John Stockton had his short shorts. If you get the chance watch the whole documentary.

I love the fact that everybody hated Isiah Thomas. Nobody wanted him on the team. I could never stand Thomas when he played. He seemed like the biggest pussy out there. A bad sport through and through. Jordan and Scottie Pippen put their foot down and Thomas wasn't allowed on the team. It's the way it should have been and it made The Dream Team even more likable because Thomas was a nightmare when it comes to representing the U..S...of A.
