The gold medal run of the 2008 US Men's Basketball team captured America's first gold medal since 2000 in dominating fashion. The squad was able to impose its will upon every team it faced, and played a beautiful brand of team basketball that produced several amazing individual highlights. The 2008 Redeem Team will go down in history as one of the best teams in history, and will be remembered forever.
Now, a debate has opened up. Could the Redeem Team take out the originators, the legendary Dream Team?
The comparisons started before the Olympics and have only heated up since Kobe & Co. brought the gold back where it belongs.
How does the Redeem Team compare to the Dream Team of 1992? Who would win head-to-head? Many look at that USA Roster that played in Barcelona and immediately dismiss these questions as stupid, but it'd be a better match-up than you think.
