Dream Team 25: A Look Back


It’s hard to believe that it’s been 25 years since the Dream Team set out for redemption in the 1992 Summer Olympics (the USA took bronze at the 1988 Olympics). Widely regarded as the greatest collection of talent to ever grace a basketball court, the Dream Team was masterfully built with one goal in mind. Bringing gold back to the United States. That team did so much more than that on and off of the courts. Each member of the team helped define the game of basketball. While the team as a whole were viewed as global rock stars, and inspired a generation around the world to take the court. 11 of 12 Dream Team members would go on to be selected to the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame, a feat that will likely never be seen again. To celebrate this team, let’s take a look back at its members and discuss not only the role they served on Dream Team, but their impact on basketball as a whole.
