1992 Dream Team vs. 2008 Redeem Team

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):

C - Patrick Ewing; David Robinson (I'll refrain from listing Magic Johnson as a Center)

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):

C - Dwight Howard; Chris Bosh

PF - Carlos Boozer; Carmelo Anthony

SF - Lebron James; Tayshaun Prince

SG - Kobe Bryant; Dwyane Wade; Michael Redd

PG - Jason Kidd; Chris Paul; Deron Williams

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?
