Jordan: 1992 Dream Team better than 2012 USA squad

CHARLOTTE, NC (AP) -- Michael Jordan says there's no way Kobe Bryant and this year's USA Olympic basketball team could've beaten the 1992 Dream Team.

Jordan told The Associated Press Thursday "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 Byrant comparing the two teams "is not one of the smarter things he ever could have done."

Jordan spoke prior to a celebrity golf tournament in Charlotte.

He says the 1992 team, which included 11 future Hall of Famers and won its six games by an average of more than 43 points en route to capturing the gold medal, may not have been as athletic but was definitely smarter.

MJ, we can debate 1992 versus 2012 team but we can not even think about comparing Charlotte's 1992 and 2012 NBA teams.
Maybe as an owner you can give us something we can stomach to watch other than a 7-59 team.
A player you were,an owner you are not.
Good owners care about the"product" on the court.

Dude are you drunk?

Give Back

Listen when you start putting food on my table I will give a woot who is the better team. How bout taking those mothballs out of your pocket and donate back to the school you came from. I bet Kobe gave back to his High School, now top that cheapo.
Forgets where he came from, will not even sign anything. I saw him refuse an autograph to a young kid for no reason.
