In celebration of the 20th anniversary of 1992’s USA Basketball team (aka The Dream Team), which is considered one of the greatest sports teams ever assembled, the NBA put together a documentary telling the story.
Titled “The Dream Team,” the special documentary for NBA TV tells the iconic team’s story from inception to end. From when and how the team was selected, to the controversy over the players selected and those who weren’t, to the rivalry amongst each other, to the impact the unit made on the sport around the world.
The players on the team included: Michael Jordan, Scottie Pippen, John Stockton, Karl Malone, Magic Johnson, Larry Bird, Patrick Ewing, Chris Mullin, David Robinson, Charles Barkley, Clyde Drexler, and the sole amatuer player Christian Laettner (of Duke University).
The film premiered on Wednesday (June 13), with encore airings on NBA TV throughout the week. But, if you can’t wait, watch the full doc here. For NBA TV airings or more info, visit NBA.com/NBATV.
