Kobe's Dream Team Diss 'Not the Smartest': Michael Jordan

Michael Jordan finally weighed in on the contrived Olympic bullshit that is LA Laker guard Kobe Bryant's assertion that this year's Team USA could beat MJ's 1992 Dream Team. "I absolutely laughed," was his initial reaction to hearing the boast Michael told the AP. "For him to compare those two teams is not one of the smarter things he ever could have done," Jordan mocked.

"I heard Kobe say we were not athletic," said Jordan "But we were smart. He said we were too old, but I was 29 and in the prime of my career. Pip [Scottie Pippen] was 26 or 27, [Charles] Barkley was 29, Patrick [Ewing] was 29 and Chris Mullin was 29. Almost everybody was still in their twenties. Most of us were in the prime of our careers, at a point where athleticism doesn't really matter. You have to know how to play the game."

You have to know how to play the game? Wonder who that is a shot at.

"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 added. "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."

Jeeze. And all that without Isiah Thomas.
