The Dream Team Debate: Kobe vs Jordan

Kobe Bryant caused a stir last week after stating that he believed the 2012 Olympic basketball team could beat the 92' Dream Team. Some feel that Kobe has a legit argument, others laughed at the notion. The most prominent 92' Dream Team member Micheal Jordan couldn't help but laugh after he was made aware of Kobe's comment. Jordan laughed with media members after he was told that Kobe said the Dream Team was "old" and not "athletic" enough to keep up with the 12' squad. Most members of the Dream Team were in the prime of their careers. The 2012 team have players that haven't been in the league for five years yet.

Although the 2012 Olympic team consists of players like: LeBron James, Kobe Brynat, Kevin Durant and Deron Williams; I would still have to take the Dream Team over these guys. Jordan put the nail in the coffin after making this final comment...
"I'd like to think that we had 11 Hall of Famers on that team, and whenever they get 11 Hall of Famers, you call and ask me who had the better Dream Team. Remember now, they learned from us. We didn't learn from them."
Jordan and myself are not the only ones siding with the 92' Dream Team. Last night President Obama took in a men's Olympic basketball exhibition game. After watching the 12' USA squad struggle to beat Brazil President Obama gave his opinion during the interview below. Check out the video and tell us which team you would take.
