Re: NBA Offseason Thread 2012
You people cry about nothing.
I agree with BoD, he's damned if he does and he's damned if he doesn't.
I like that confidence Kobe has. StarzNBarz if you want to hear the answer that you posted then go ask LeBron or Durant that question they'll probably give you that answer, people know the way Kobe is.
And tbh, in a best of 7 series the original 2012 USA team could've been able to beat the Dream Team once or twice. They would not have gotten sweep and they would not have gotten blown out by 30+ every game. Dream Team never faced a team as good as this:
LeBron, Durant & Melo would eat Chris Mullin and a 36-year old bad back Larry Bird alive. In the Dream Team documentary, it was said that the Dream Team's only weakness was guarding quick guards. Rose, CP3 & Deron were faster than both 92 Magic and Stockton, probably faster than MJ & Drexler too. The Dream Team would have an advantage with their big men but how would they guard Durant? Would they start Pippen and switch Barkley or Malone to guard LeBron?
There's too many variables, it annoys me to no end how people act like the Dream Team would dominate the original 2012 team like they dominated teams in 92. The best team they faced was led by Toni fucking Kukoc. I would say Dream Team wins in a minimum 6 games.
