Team USA Basketball: LeBron James Says 2012 Team Would Beat Dream Team

The debate rages on between who is better between the 1992 Dream Team and the 2012 United States Men's basketball team. Kobe Bryant recently said that he felt the 2012 team could beat the Dream Team in one game.

"The '92 Dream Team paved the way for all of us ... We understand what they did for our game, but we also are big-time competitors as well, so if we got the opportunity to play them in a game we feel like we would win, too."

This will always be a topic that will never be answered, but to beat a team just one time is always possibly. It is likely that the 2012 team could win at least one game against the 1992 Dream Team.
