Kobe Bryant, LeBron James, Dwyane Wade, Chris Bosh, Carmelo Anthony, Dwight Howard, Chris Paul, Deron Williams, Kevin Durant, Derrick Rose, Tyson Chandler, Eric Gordon, Rudy Gay, Kevin Love, Lamar Odom, Chauncey Billups, Russell Westbrook and Andre Iguodala. Isn’t this team little much? They’ll probably end up with 75% of this roster and add Blake Griffin and Lemarcus Laldridge too but it’s like killing and animal and then shooting it in the face. 7 times. And then lighting it on fire and drowning it. Just an overkill. What the hell are Pau Gasol and Ricky Rubio supposed to do against a starting five of Chris Paul, Dwade, Kobe, Lebron, and Dwight?(That’s the starting 5 I’d go with.) I think this team is comparable to the 92′ Dream Team. Let’s compare. Dream Team will be on the right and 2012 Olympic team will be on the left.
Point Guards: Chris Paul, Deron Williams, D.Rose Vs John Stockton and Magic. Chris Paul may be the best point guard and D.Rose may be the best scoring point guard that have come along in a very long time but John Stockton is all time assists and steals and Magic is fucking Magic. 92′ Dream Team all day on point guards.
Shooting Guards: Kobe, Dwayne Wade vs Jordan, Clyde Drexler. Okay yes it is Jordan. Michael Jordan, but Dwade and Kobe combined are much scarier than the combination of Jordan and Clyde Drexler. If you put Kobe on China and Dwade in Yugoslavia, there’s a more than likely chance they’d put their teams on their backs and meet in the finals. 2012 Team takes this one by a hair.
Small Forwards: Lebron, Durantula, Melo vs Scottie Pippen, Larry Bird, Chris Mullen. This isn’t Larry Legend in 92′. This is Sr. Larry. The guy who couldn’t play more than 30 minutes a game without feeling it for a week. Say what you want, but Lebron is going down as the best small forward to ever play the game. Maybe not the best player, but small forward is his so I’ll take the 2012 team. Scottie’s defense was top notch but you pair him with Chris Mullen and Melo and Durantula pick you apart. 2012 team by a mile.
Power Forwards: Blake, Kevin Love, Bosh vs. Charles Barkley, Karl Malone, Christian Laettner. AHAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAH. 92′ Dream Team with a large coke and fries please.
Centers: Dwight Howard, Tyson Chandler vs David Robinson, Patrick Ewing. Yeah this one isn’t even arguable. David Robinson is the last man on earth to have a quadruple double. You think Dwight’s defense was good? Go youtube David Robinson blocks and keep yourself occupied for a couple hours. 92′ Dream Team again.
On paper, they do look like a monstrous team, which they are. But the Dream Team is the best ever for a reason. If you break it down, no team could’ve went toe to toe.
