I downloaded this documentary and plan watching it on a 42 inch LCD, it is a shame watching it on a computer screen.

Thanks for sharing!

It's already HD, just switch the HDMI from your computer screen into your TV and you're all set, that's what I did.

Don't waste your time on jealously; sometimes you're ahead, sometimes you're behind.

chuck is hilarious, and lol @ stockton not even getting recognized by a lady who has his face plastered on her shirt.

poor isiah thomas, if he wasn't such a "bad-boy", he'd be on that team.

Great video This is the BEST ever team assembled and no team should ever be coined the Dream Team. 11 HOFs with Magic, Bird and Jordan the best ever players to have played in their positions. Could have been 12 HOFs if Shaq was picked as the college player instead of Laettner, who was selected after 2 straight NCAA titles with Duke and having more "international" experience, something which Shaq is still pissed today

For Isiah Thomas, he definitely deserves a spot on the team based on talent, and I bet he's the guy Chuck Daly wanted more than anyone else on the team. But Thomas didn't get the call given the rest of the team (Jordan in particular) hated him and wouldn't want to play together with him. Also I find it remarkable Jordan and Daly would spend time playing golf together :eekani: You would expect Jordan to hate Daly to the core given he was the coach who devised the "Jordan Rule" with the Pistons.

Today's team doesn't have a true center, a point guard like Magic, deadeye shooters like Bird and Mullin. Bird's jumper is money even if he's blindfolded, and this coming from a Laker fan.

cool movie...Jordan's golf outfit in Monte Carlo was the greatest lol moment in that but some other memorable stuff too

not much in it about the actual matches of the olympic tournament though...they talk quite a lot about the first two games (Angola and Croatia) and then mention nothing about the next ones including the SF vs Lithuania and the great Sabonis which was Dream Team's greatest performance IMO. Then they briefly metion USA won the final against Croatia and that's it.

Big games are easy than the other games, unfortunately. Every times we have the control the games, under the control the games, during the games we had the some possibilities, some big chances, some big okazyons, something like that but what can I do, sometimes? And….it’s the football, that’s the football, something happened. Everything is something happened. - Fatih Terim

OG Dream team in prime and Todays USA team....OG kills them, and takes a dump on them after they are finished. Its not even arguable.

Mike would absolutely search & destroy each and every one from this current team.

People forget how uncontainable he was, unlike players we have today. Not to mention the ridiculous amount of bigs that would wipe their ass with Kevin Love and Blake floppin Griffin.

Don't waste your time on jealously; sometimes you're ahead, sometimes you're behind.

ok his dad is black so I guess he is black too by American racial purity standards which considers Tiger Woods to be African American

at least Kevin Love's dad looks like he wouldn't be kicked out of a klan meeting
