THE Dream Team
« on: July 10, 2018, 04:25:26 PM »
If you know who these guys are, you're giving away your age.  If you don't, I'm sorry.  This was a historic game and came about because of the Soviets.  They won a controversial game against one our of our Olympic teams composed entirely of amateurs, college and I think some high school players. It really wasn't too long ago the Olympic's were made up entirely of amateur athletes.  The Soviets, because of some gray area rule, were made up entirely of European level pros, we still almost won. The Dream Team (new Olympic rules) was an effort to get the Americans back on even footing with many of the Eastern Bloc nations who were fielding high level players. It worked and this team was sent as a statement.
