Kobe Bryant Still Thinks 2012 Team USA Would Beat ’92 Dream Team ‘in One Game’

by July 13, 2012

Unfazed by strong rebuttals to his claims from Charles Barkley, his Olympic teammate Michael Jordan (Scottie Pippen and Magic Johnson chimed in as well), Kobe Bryant continues to believe in his current Olympic team being able to beat the Dream Team in an imaginary game. Via Ben Golliver: “Here’s Kobe Bryant’s full, must-read response to Michael Jordan’s Dream Team trash talk. Jordan said he laughed when he heard Bryant said the 2012 USA Basketball team could beat the 1992 Dream Team. Bryant’s post-game response after USA defeated Dominican Republic in Las Vegas on Thursday night: ‘So what, he knows I’m a bad mother[expletive]. I’m not really tripping. The fact is, they have Ewing and Robinson and those big guys, it’s tough. If you’re asking me, ‘Can you beat them one game?’ Hell yeah, we can beat them in one game. You didn’t ask me if we could beat them in a 7-game series. In one game, we can beat them. No question about it.'”
