The competition that the 92 team played was a joke.

This a timeless great sports debate, but the 92 Team would prevail. Aside from all the championship pedigree an experience that team possessed, but also consider the Finals appearances. Glyde, Barkely, Stockton, Ewing, and Malone. Maybe even Mullin was on that Pacers team, I dont remember. But the 92 squad knew how to win. The gentleman above is misinformed when he utters statement "kobe obw is a much better shooter than Jordan." Jordan shot 40 points higher than Kobe for his career. Kobe also has never even shot 500 in any season of is illustricious career. Don't get me wrong, I like both of these players. But, Kobe is the little brother.

would agree with taking plus ten,if vegas does a computer game with 10, taking chances with 2012 team, only weakness is center but figure today's speed, dont think old team would be able to keep up with faster team in fourth.

Are they playing by the pussy rules that the NBA goes by today or what was played in 1992? CP2 and DWILL LOL you can have them 2 I will take every guard on 92. This isnt close 92 would clean 2012.

92 dream team members couldn't handle today's social media age. They would read one negative comment on twitter and lose all focus

You guys are funny. What is Kobe (beef) supposed to say? "yea I think the dream team would beat us". How would that make his team feel going into the Olympics? USA all the way.

um... durant 41.5% from 3, or kobe who btw is a much better shooter than jordan ever was also # the second oddsmaker is right about westbrook. only guy on the floor that couold guard him would be pippen and that means CP3 and Dwill will roam free. We are talking about the best and possibly two best scorers of the ball the game has ever seen in Kobe and Durant. Yes I think Kobe is the best offensive player to ever suit up. and DUrant may take that distinction. Lebron could guard anybody on the court except David Robinson who is just a stronger version of tyson chandler. I think they go to game 7 and Ill take Jordan in a shot for the win. Basically makes it a wash. IMHO

is this the same kobe that said lakers would come back agains dallas in seven games when they ended up getting swept. Dream team 92 was the best team ever in the history of sports. The margin of victory says it all with 92 team. Kobe was lucky they beat Spain in the finals. A bad bounce here and there. USA could of come in second with the silver. I still think Spain has an outside shot to win gold this year.

With a 20-minute half and no quarter or TV breaks, the depth of Dream Team 92 would eventually kill 2012. I just don't see the grit and desire to win in 12 like you had with 92. Eric Gordon couldn't carry Chris Mullen's jock.

exactly J-Logan... Jordan was 29.. Kobe is 33 (will be 34 in August). Jordan would embarrass him.. Team USA 2012 .. learn some respect! respect ur elders!!

Kobe Bryant is a huge douchebag....nobody should care but if you want to set a line I'd agree with somewhere in between 6 and 12 points just because of potential back door covers with a double digit spread.... I'd unload everything I have at Andrew Patterson's book getting plus 3 with the Dream Team....I'd feel real good getting three points...I'd prob just go moneyline and forgo the points...

Jordan '92 would eat Kobe '12 alive. Kobe a few years back would stand a chance.

Wow, John Avello is nuts! He'd lay -10 with the '92 Dream Team! I think they have the size advantages upfront, surely, but lack in the 3 guard and under departments. While Kobe and Jordan will cancel eachother out, there is no one who can really stop Lebron James and Kevin Durant from doing what they want to do on the basketball court. Bird/Pippen/Charles Barkley would have trouble on the stop end against those two. I would gladly take the +10 and put that in my pocket for a max bet.

This years team has the worst big men I've ever seen. tyson chandler and blake griifin.... no need to say more Robinson, Malone, and Ewing would have their way not to mention how many shots they would block or alter.
