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.
