Interesting. I'm going to go '92. Jordan wasn't accustomed to playing as a team in '88 and I think thats a big difference. I think similarly, '88 and '92 overlapping players, with most of those overlapping players developing into true winners in the early 90s. I think the big men improved too with Ewing improving, but more importantly, David Robinson was a beast in 92. I like 92 Robinson over Moses Malone.

'88 in a landslide. Peak Magic and Bird, as opposed to their Summer of '92 forms, put them over the top.

1988 would win. Magic and Bird are in their prime and Jordan is at his athletic prime.

Man, I still can't believe one team had Magic, Bird, and Jordan -- 3 of the top 5 greatest players ever.. on the same team.. crazy!

To bad Hakeem wasn't a U.S. citizen in '88 and 1992 or he would of easily made the Dream Team. (And the '88 dream team) :)

? Jordan played 3 years at UNC. Jordan had always been able to play with a team. We're not talking about Kobe here.

True. But he hadn't played on a good team for 4 years at that point. I think David Robinson is the big difference maker.

1988. 1988 vs 1992 Larry Bird would make the biggest difference. 1988 Magic also has the upper hand compared to his 1992 self.
BTW, the 1992 team could have been even more imposing than they were if they had prefered college Shaq instead or Laettner.

MJ did win a national championship at UNC.

I think the difference makers are Magic and Bird. Magic was better in in '88 than in '92 and Bird was wayyyyyyyyyyy better in '88 as well.
