The second best version of Team USA
#7
Quote:I agree with you guys.Team from 1996 was unstoppable,they defeated Yugoslavia in final.For Yugoslavia played the best European players like Dejan Bodiroga,Vlade Divac,Aleksandar Djordjevic and many others. Thup

And I believe that if was not war in Yugoslavia,that on Olympics 1992 Yugoslavia would be awesome competitive team to Dream Team. Cool

Defintely agree with this. I think that the Dream Team beats Yugoslavia but it would have been a lot closer than anything they saw. The subsequent question is how good would a Kukoc/Petrovic Croatian team have been in the mid to late 90s once both players were in their prime? Smile Not as good as a Yugoslavian team obviously but Drazen definitely left us way too early!

Actually, one of the arguments that pisses me off in the US media is that the 2012 Team USA somehow loses credibility for being in close games with Lithuania and Spain. Team USA wrapped up both games with minutes left on the clock. They were pretty close games but hardly nailbiting finishes. The world is a hell of a lot better now than it used to be, even the Dream Team would have momentary struggles against today's teams.
