The Chicago Bulls had a lot of things that they effected when they had a dynasty and USA Olympic basketball was one of those things.
Of course, the Chicago Bulls were on their way to becoming the greatest dynasty in the history of sports in the early 1990s. In 1992, they announced that the American Olympic Basketball team would be the first in the history of the world to feature a roster loaded with players from the National Basketball Association. Well, it would go on to be known as “The Dream Team” and some consider it to be the greatest sports team ever assembled.
The Chicago Bulls had a lot to do with the makeup of this team and their perception of a couple of their opponents. For one thing, Michael Jordan and Scottie Pippen were on the team. They joined players like Magic Johnson, Larry Bird, Karl Malone, John Stockton, and Charles Barkley amongst others. It is clear why the team cruised to an Olympic Gold Medal but it didn’t come without some storylines.
