That'd be a mismatch because they'll have either Barkley or Malone on him but they can still cover that up with great team defense especially because Chandler isn't a threat on offense so the centers could roam, rotate on time and provide help any time they get beat off the dribble.
EDIT: JM, if it's a one game thing, it'd be harder but how about Robinson/Ewing and Malone/Barkley? You're telling me that's not a bigger mismatch than Bron against that shitty frontline?
I'd burst out laughing with KD trying to guard either Chuck or Malone.

It would be equal. KD wouldn't be able to guard Chuck or Karl effectively and they wouldn't able to guard Durant effectively.
Me I'm not talking about this current USA team, I'm talking about the original 2012 team.
There's no doubt in my mind that
Could beat the Dream Team in a game, as for series I really don't know but it would be close. The Dream Team never faced a team as good as this. And if you watched the Dream Team documentary you would remember that the DT's biggest and pretty much only weakness was quick players. The fast-paced style of the 2012 team would be a nightmare for the Dream Team, however the 2012 team would be at a disadvantage because of how physical the 92 team is, they're not used to playing with that type of physicality.
MJ could guard quicker points just fine. I don't know why they said that in the documentary. You guys should watch his D on KJ in the 93 finals and KJ has one of the quickest first steps and acceleration for a point ever. Stockton and Magic could get burned though.
And seriously bro, Magic, Pippen, Jordan, Drexler, Barkley/Malone and Robinson, that's some of the greatest open court players ever. They'd do great in a running game. The only guy out of those, I can see wearing down by the running game is Magic because he wasn't in top shape. The rest were killers.
Look at a center like Robinson dribble the ball up the floor, looks like a guard out there.
