Colangelo: 2012 Olympians Will Compare Favorably To Dream Team
Jerry Colangelo expects there will be comparisons next summer between the Dream Team and the 2012 Olympic basketball team.
He says to bring them on.
"I think it will be a fair comparison with the Dream Team," Colangelo said. "Look at the progress our players have made since (winning Olympic gold in) 2008. We have some of the greatest players of all time.
"You're hearing Kobe (Bryant) right up there with the greatest of all time. Dwayne Wade and LeBron (James) are right up there. You've got to add up the names, and you look at the young guys like (Kevin) Durant as an example and (Derrick) Rose as an example. There's so many. There's only been one Dream Team, and that's the way I think it should be. But there's no question our team will be much stronger than we had in 2008. They're more mature, more experienced and we've got more talent."
