Lot's of friendly banter going back and forth lately between guys like Barkley, Malone, Kobe, etc.

If you've watched ESPN or listened to the radio lately, I'm sure you've heard it.

Basically, that whole documentary came out a couple weeks ago about the Dream Team and I honestly think Kobe and a few of the other players got a little jealous and butthurt that we aren't talking about them.

I would take the Dream Team and be willing to lay 10-12 points. IMHO, only Kobe/LBJ would be locks to make the original DT.

Honestly, I'd probably take DT2 over the current squad.

EDIT: fuging macbook

The 2012 team couldn't beat the 2008 team.

Kobe's response to MJ - "He knows I'm a bad mother fuger, I ain't really tripping."

Durant could maybe make that team too, but no dream team would straight crush them. They are going to have a tough time even winning the gold I think.

IMO it would be a lot close than people think. A lot of guys on that '92 team were well past their prime- Bird and Magic would be huge liabilities on defense and wouldnt have a chance of guarding guys like Chris Paul and Lebron. Of course, with Dwight and Wade injured the 2012 team would give up a lot to MJ and Ewing/ Robinson down low.

With Howard and Wade, I think this years team wins. Without them, this years team wouldnt have enough inside to handle the dream team

I think when you add in the age argument, the 2012 team does have a chance at beating the dream team. (Yet I don't think they could do it even with the age on the dream team) Yet, who cares if Kobe and those boys could beat old men? What, they want a cookie? I could probably beat Larry Bird one on one at that age. I really don't understand the obsession with this question if we are talking about a 2012 olympic team that has young stars, vs the dream team who has aged hall of famers.

Let's ask a true question. (Since all of this is theoretical anyway) Could a primed 2012 team take on a primed dream team? Could this 2012 team take on a dream team where all of it's players are in their prime? My guess is that dream team would win 200-0.

Larry Bird's response to KB so far has been the best.

Whos gurading a 6'9" PG in Magic, CP3 whos 6'0"?

Theres a reason why people called them the Dream Team.

This 2012 team are trying to stamp that name on themselves, rather then having people give it to them.

    • I am a 3 percenter. I am white, married, no children, no debt. I have a pension for the rest of my life, and we have a couple retirement accounts to also use at some point. I own the home I live in, I built and own 50% of the house my in-laws live in and we have our place in Mexico.  If you think for one fugging second that anything Trump does effects my life from one day to the next, you are sadly mistaken.  That being said, I'm also a compassionate human being who cares about the quality of life for other human beings. I've been places and seen both the best and worst of how people live all over the world. The GOP has proven time and again over the past 40 years they couldn't give a sh!t less about blue collar, middle America. The working class for the GOP are nothing but the mules who lug their riches to the bank. The backs of the working class bore not only the labor that made assholes like Trump rich, but they are also the backs the GOP stand on to keep their feet from touching the bullsh!t they spew. While racism has always had its place in politics, the GOP has become very overt in their racism and have added that to the mix as well.  Sad part is, many naive, uneducated people who live in this country and who have been the forced labor in the GOP camp for the last 40 years are supporting such a regime. Why? Because they have no nuance for anything but the very basic and will believe the simpleton idea of "building a wall" before they'll try to educate themselves and become literate with the entire immigration reform issue. They'll buy into the anti-Muslim rhetoric and believe they are the terrorists despite the fact they should more afraid of the teenage white kid down the street who spends most of his time playing video games in the basement and reads Nazi blogs on his lunch hour in the high school cafeteria.      
    • @Mr. Scot   I am happy for the good, and sad for the bad, but, I do know you will do alright. Just keep your eye on the prize, and all will be well. You may be losing this family, so you've got that going for you.   Keep Pounding my friend. Keep Pounding.
