What would happen if the crème de la crème of the National Basketball Association came together, and represented the U.S. men's basketball team in the Olympics? Two words – sheer dominance – which is exactly what happened at the 1992 Barcelona Olympics. Dubbed "The Dream Team," the group featured eventual NBA Hall of Famers including Michael Jordan, Magic Johnson, Larry Bird, Patrick Ewing, David Robinson and Charles Barkley. In the end, the Dream Team defeated their opponents by an average of almost 44 points, and earned their inevitable gold medal.
