In the midst of the NBA Finals excitement and on the 20th anniversary of the 1992 Olympic Dream Team basketball win, NBA TV debuted their anticipated “The Dream Team” documentary. With interviews from Michael Jordan, Magic Johnson, Scotty Pippen, and behind-the-scenes footage of the teams practices and downtime – it’s a truly inspiring documentary. You would think it would be filled with shocking drama and egos crashing and trash talking after years of silence. But the documentary is the opposite of that. The Dream Team which had 11 Hall of Fame players and one college superstar puts their egos aside to show admiration for the time they spent together during the Olympic season. Learning to work together as a team, I watched a group of legends work together and form relationships even in spite of loss and intimidation.
Watching the film you see how much todays pop culture down to fashion and sports today has been molded from the players on this team. Todays comparisons of Lebron, Wade, Durant, and other huge players of 2012 seem to be offensive after watching this documentary. The superstar-ness and rock star aura of these players continues to today. No matter if todays players records surpass the legends numbers, it was their circumstance and their incredible personas that made them legends until today. I learned a lot about The Team and about players and most importantly about the coach that controlled all those egos Chuck Daly who died in 2009 from Pancreatic Cancer.Amazing documentary and I definitely recommend watching it below.
One time for my Olympic Sevens.
