Michael Jordan heard Kobe Bryant’s comments that the 2012 Olympic team could beat the 1992 Dream Team and laughed at the idea of it.
Jordan surprises no one here as he, like fellow Dream Teamer Charles Barkley, knows there is no way that Dream Team is losing.
Jordan told The Associated Press Thursday that he laughed, “I absolutely laughed” when hearing Bryant’s comments that the squad training in Las Vegas could take Jordan and company.
Jordan says there was “no comparison” which team was better, adding that Bryant comparing the two teams “is not one of the smarter things he ever could have done.”
Kobe’s comments are probably being taken a little too seriously right now. It’s not like Kobe said he thinks the 2012 team would kill the Dream Team or anything. He just said he thought they could take them. What’s he supposed to say?
Jordan and Barkley have to feel insulted though when they hear anything about the Dream Team and losing. It just couldn’t happen in their eyes and they’re probably right
We quickly forget the past in sports so much while so eager to crown new stars. Luckily we have egos like Michael’s and Chuck’s to keep us in line.
