Growing up in the 90s my favorite sport without a doubt was Basketball, when my friends and I weren't down at the local playground shooting hoops, we were on the street tossing a ball into a milk crate that was nailed to a telephone pole! I had Jerseys for Jordan, Bird, and my favorite player Shawn Kemp! Also around this time was the era of Starting LineUp Figures and I was just starting to become more of a collector then a kid who played with them . . . the truth of the matter was they weren't exactly all that fun to play with any way!
When this 1992 "Dream Team" Set came out, some how I was able to convince my folks to spend $79.99 at Kay-Bee Stores!
Now this set goes for about $70 MIB on Ebay so in 20 Year that's a total of -10 Dollars Profit! I can only wonder what this bad boy can net me in 2032!
But fuck it, I still love this thing and the whole team is there save for Clyde Drexler & Christian Laettner!
In the last few days a debate sprung from Kobe Bryant saying this 2012 Summer Olympic Team is better then the 92 Team . . .
CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) — Michael Jordan said there's no way Kobe Bryant and this year's USA Olympic basketball team could've beaten the 1992 Dream Team.
Jordan told The Associated Press Thursday that he laughed — "I absolutely laughed" — when hearing Bryant's comments that the squad training in Las Vegas could take Jordan and company.
Jordan said there's "no comparison" which team is better.
"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.
Keep dreaming Pal, no body would be able to be Jordan in his Prime along with Bird, Magic, and Sir Charles . . . Nobody!
