Jordan had the worst stats on the team. Isiah Thomas would have posted better numbers. Regardless though the Jordan myth outweighs reality and the answer to your question is no.

probably wouldn't be considered the "dream team"
but anyone who says the 1992 team is the greatest ever but it wouldn't be if jordan was replaced with isiah is just an example of how overrated jordan is i mean no doubt he's the goat but he's still vastly overrated

Their biggest 'weakness' against 2012 was that 2012 had better PGs. With Zeke, Magic, and Stockton you have arguably the three best ever (Isiah and Magic are 2-1, Stockton, debatable). Zeke takes away said weakness.

I'm not sure if I'm understanding your post .. you're saying the combo of deron williams and chris paul are superior to the combo of magic johnson and john stockton ?

They might be better just because Magic hadn't played for a year and Stockton was hurt and Pippen was playing lots of point.

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

The team wouldn't have had the same aura without MJ there. The big appeal of the Dream Team in particular was having MJ, Bird, and Magic on the same team. In that era, they were three of the five biggest superstars in American sports PERIOD! I would say along with Montana and Mike Tyson. Isiah as great as he was, was never on that level.

But MJ had the perfect storm of epic playing ability and an epic marketing plan. Which of course included the most iconic shoe most likely in American history. So it was MJ's hoop skills AND marketing plan that had the world on lock. I do think guys like Isiah and Nique had a playing style so exciting that they would have won a lot of new fans on a worldwide scale. Fans of the game already knew who they were due to the dunk contests, all star games, Isiah winning rings, etc. But for fans watching for the first time or very casual fans, Isiah and Nique would have won them over easy!

No.
If any one of these three are not in the team, it would not be "Dream Team":
1. Michael Jordan
2. Larry Bird
3. Magic Johnson
