If Isiah Thomas played for the dream team instead of Michael Jordan

isiah drexler barkley malone ewing



still win gold


people overlook that isiah was a winner....won ncaa at indiana under the biggest asshole to ever coach

he could definitely adjust to playing with other superstars

maybe 10% of the attention though because nike, and his playing style and rings...had made mj an international superstar before he set foot in barcelona

That wasn't the question. The aura would obviously not the be same. By 1992 Jordan was in a lot of circles considered the greatest player of all time and easily the biggest sports attraction in the world at the Olympics. Nobody would care about Isiah Thomas. The team would definitely not have had as much fun. They would still have won gold, but half the team hated Isiah's guts and as Chuck Daly was the coach it would be interesting to see how the line up would play out.

They would still win Gold, but I doubt it will get as popular as with MJ. MJ was a huge basketball icon and far more popular than Isiah Thomas globally.

Wouldn't have been called the Dream Team without MJ.

Then is not a Dream Team..

As much as I love Zeke, if he was on the Dream Team instead of MJ, that would not have been the Dream Team. He would have screwed up the chemistry one way or another.

Hakeem wasn't on the team, so it shouldn't be called the dream team anyway :pimp:
