As you may figure, it was only a matter of time until Michael Jordan had his say in the matter and he decided to go with the Dream Team:
Jordan told The Associated Press Thursday that he laughed — “I absolutely laughed” — when hearing Kobe Bryant comments that the squad training in Las Vegas could take Jordan and company.
“For him to compare those two teams is not one of the smarter things he ever could have done,” Jordan said prior playing in a celebrity golf tournament in Charlotte.
“I imagine he’s trying to say it to legitimize his own Dream Team,” Jordan said. “But to me it’s not even a question what team is better.””For him to make that comparison, it’s one of those things where it creates conversation,” Jordan said.
“I guess we’ll never know. I’d like to think that we had 11 Hall of Famers on that team and whenever they get 11 Hall of Famers you call and ask me who had the better Dream Team. Remember now, they learned from us. We didn’t learn from them.”
