We'll say it's a 7-game series. Who wins between the two teams?

Starting Lineups

1992 - 2012

Patrick Ewing - Tyson Chandler
Charles Barkley - Kevin Love
Scottie Pippen/Larry Bird (split time) - LeBron James
Michael Jordan - Kobe Bryant
Magic Johnson - Chris Paul

Hell, Jordan and Magic and pick three '92 NBA players and it's still a game.

The 2012 would get destroyed in the post and probably wouldnt win but,

Chris Paul > '92 Magic

Isiah was the best PG in the league then and he didnt even make the team

1992 would embarrass these current guys.

if both teams are in their prime, 1992 Dream Team....and it's not even close. 4-0

If they played today, 2012 would win, but it'd be a real real close series.

the only reason he didn't was because Jordan, and some other members didn't want him there.

Whose rules? There was much more physicality in '92, also no zone defense. The original team would own the post game.

The second string of the "Dream Team" could beat this 2012 squad. Seriously

David Robinson - Tyson Chandler
Karl Malone - Kevin Love
Scottie Pippen/Larry Bird (split time) - LeBron James
Clyde Drexler - Kobe Bryant
John Stockton - Chris Paul

That 1992 team was simply amazing. It's hard to judge the current players because it's like Jordan said: "they learned from us, we didn't learn from them".
