I had a discussion earlier today with my younger brother about this topic. We both concluded that the original Dream Team was far superior to the Redeem Team. But how much better? If we somehow were able to manipulate the space-time continuum to make it so that it was simultaneously 1992 and 2008 to allow for those two teams to square off in a seven game series to be played in a neutral arena in Asgabat, Turkmenistan (roughly the midway point between Barcelona and Beijing), what would be the outcome of the series?The roster for the Dream Team is (not necessarily in terms of starters and backups):
PF - Charles Barkley; Karl Malone; Christian Laettner
SF - Scottie Pippen; Larry Bird; Chris Mullin
SG - Michael Jordan; Clyde Drexler
PG - Magic Johnson; John Stockton
With Chuck Daly as the coach.
The roster for the Redeem Team is (again, as above):
SF - Lebron James; Tayshaun Prince
With Mike Krzyzewski as the coach.
Would the Redeem Team even win a game?
What would the storyline of each game look like in this clash of epic proportions?
