This article has been divided into 3 parts, Advantages, Breakdown, and Match-ups. Check out all three parts here on Beastmodebasketball.com

In Part I of this article, I outlined the advantages of both teams. Now, lets really break this down!

Part II: The Breakdown

1992 Dream Team

Starting Lineup

Magic Johnson, Michael Jordan, Charles Barkley, Karl Malone, Patrick Ewing

Best 3 Reserves

David Robinson, Scottie Pippen, Chris Mullin

Clyde Drexler was good but in a tight game, he wouldn’t play much because Jordan would be on the court the entire game.

John Stockton was good but injured and too slow and only averaged 2.8 pts. per game and 2 assists during the 92 olympics.

Larry Bird is a legend but in 1992 he had a bad back and was way too slow to keep up with the 2012 team.

2012 Dream Team

Starting Lineup

Kobe Bryant, Lebron James, Chris Paul, Kevin Durant, Tyson Chandler

Best 3 Reserves

Carmelo Anthony, Deron Williams, Russel Westbrook

Andre Iguodala is a key reserve because of his defense and his ability to play shooting guard or small forward.

Kevin Love would be key against the 92 Dream Team because of his size and his rebounding ability. In fact,   because of his ability to get 30 rebounds in a single game, Love might actually neutralize the 92 Dream Team’s rebound advantage!

If needed, Anthony Davis could be used to help defend the 92 Dream Team’s post players. Although Davis is inexperienced, his shot blocking ability would be an asset.

This is the end of Part II. Check out Part III to see why the 2012 Dream Team would defeat the 92 Dream Team. Beastmodebasketball.com
