Which Dream Team is better, 1992 or 2012?

For the team of 1992:

Christian Laettner
David Robinson
Patrick Ewing
Larry Bird
Scotty Pippen
Michael Jordan
Clyde Drexler
Karl Malone
John Stockton
Chris Mullen
Charles Barkley
Magic Johnson

For the team of 2012:

Tyson Chandler
Kevin Durant
LeBron James
Russell Westbrook
Deron Williams
Andre Iguodala
Kobe Bryant
Kevin Love
James Harden
Chris Paul
Anthony Davis
Carmelo Anthony

Bryant and James believed the 2012 team would win against the 1992 Olympic team.

'92 has the best player of all time (Jordan), the best PG of all time (Magic), the best perimeter defender of all time (Pippen), two elite centers, and the best shooting forward of all time (Bird).

As star-packed as it was, it was also a perfectly constructed team.

Lebron and Kobe are both great players, and would make the 92 era team... As well as Durant... Outside of that, the rest of the '12 team isn't even in the same discussion. In fact, it's pretty friggen bad in comparison.

To be honest, I'm just so glad I was alive and old enough to witness the golden age of the NBA. The amount of great players during that time is staggering.

One thing about that 92 team was how they wanted to win so badly.

Barkley had a white hot intensity through that whole Olympics and it spread through the whole team - not that many of those competitors needed any outside help. That's why they are who they are - Bird, Jordan, Johnson, Ewing, Malone...Good God, what a lineup.

Who would win, 1992 or 2012? This borders on being a rhetorical question.

Question is FAIL.
1992 is the only Dream Team. The others were just...not.

This is a great point. Other than Kobe, I'm not sure how many of the guys on the 2012 have that BURNING NEED to win that many of the guys on the 1992 team had.

Magic, Bird, Jordan -- those guys would basically KILL to win.

But you need to remember that this was the first ever basketball team assembled from the NBA. They wanted the legacy to last.

I don't think that matters. The big key is everyone on the 92 team tried to play defense. The 2012 team is loaded with guys who flat out do not care about playing defense. Throw in a Rodman, and you might just have a lebron stopper.

Rodman was not quick enough to stop LeBron. Pippen was long enough and fast enough to give him problems, though.

Honestly, a better question is this:

If the former Yugoslavia had not broken up, how much of a game could they have given the 2012 team?
