I gotta take the 2012 team... I think they were more physical than the Dream team..just my 2 cents. The score would be close, but Kobe, Lebron or Durant would get the job done.

bud you are talking about the dream team aka the legends, including arguably one of the best to ever touch a basketball in the nba, Michael Jordan, then you have Larry Bird, Scottie Pippen, Charles Big Head Barkley, Patrick Ewing, Magic Johnson....

I don't think I have to keep going, I mean I love Kobe and Lebron, and even Durant, but I don't think they could go up against legends, that is assuming they both played when they were in their prime, which probably will never happen, because most of the dream team now are old as hell and most likely cant run up and down the court once without having a heart attack.

Who could forget these guys>?

Its all good bro, I just didnt see the Dream team as being all that physical, yeah they were shooters, and could pass the ball great but other than that... I dont know. The games changed since then, athletes nowadays are stronger, faster, and more physical then they were back during that time.

You must have not watch late 80's early 90's NBA. The way they played defense was tough it was like watching wwe, no such thing as touch fouls like what they call today. There is a reason why this this lil scoring point guards are having success today it's because the no hand check rule and touch fouls favor quick guards. If they would try to drive in back then they would get clotheslined and elbow in the face and no fouls will be called. IF you watch MJ drive back then he drives in full force and no flopping, because if he tries to pull off a Euro step he would get pummeled and refs back then don't call on flops, so you really have to commit to your drive. Now if you sneeze on lebron it's going to be called a flagrant foul.


The dream team had some of the best big mans to ever play the game. There is no way Kevin love and chandler can guard Barkley, Malone, Robinson and Ewing. Lebron won't be able to drive in that lane. 2012 dream team had a hard time against the soft Pau Gasol and Marc Gasol.

The link below will show how tough defense was played back then.

I think the numbers can be deceiving. The game of basketball had become so much more popular globally. I don't have the exact number but if someone can check the number of international players in the nba 20 years ago compare to now... you will find a lot more now then before. So the way this 2012 took harder to beat the other country, I wouldn't think much of that. Don't forget, you have D.Rose and Howard who both could had been on this 2012 roster. Not that I'm saying the 2012 can certainly beat the 2002 team, but I wouldn't necessary say it will be a blow out either way. Let's even break down the roster:

PG - I. Thomas/J. Stockton vs Derrick Rose/CP3 (Derrick Rose/CP3)
SG - Michael Jordan vs Kobe Bryant (MJ)
SF - Pipen/Barkely vs Lebron/Anthony (Lebron/Anthony)
PF - Karl Malone vs Kevin love (Kevin Love)
C - Ewing vs Howard (Howard)

I know I may had missed out a few players but these are the one I could remember off the top of my head. So I think they both got their share of advantage and disadvantage. We'll know who will win when the NBA2k13 comes out later on this year. LOLZ!
