We probably would have attacked them from inside and outside, and I think that would have been pretty much solidified [for the '92 team's defense] with shot-blockers as well as perimeter defensive players."In [terms] of how the game is played from an offensive standpoint and a defense standpoint -from a team standpoint -I feel like we were much more solid defensively. We could definitely guard the perimeter and force them to penetrate to shot-blockers, which I felt like would've made a big difference with this team in 2012.

    They only had one shot-blocker. Granted, I know LeBron [James] and some of those guys can still block shots.

In the most rudimentary of comparisons of their undefeated runs, the original Dream Teamers hold the edge in margin of victory (an average of 43.8 points in wins over Angola, Croatia, Germany, Brazil, Spain, Puerto Rico, Lithuania and Croatia compared

    to the 2012 team's margin of 32.1 points against France, Tunisia, Nigeria, Lithuania, Argentina, Australia, Argentina and Spain), scoring (117.3 points for the '92 team, 115.5 for '12) and Buy NFL Coins points allowed Photo Gallery: Classic pictures of the Dream Team]But as Jordan acknowledged, the global game has come a long way in the last two decades. Thus, the numbers should be considered somewhat skewed because of the difference in the levels of competition."If were in the this same situation as 2012 with the talent we had, could we compete against the talent that's in Europe now?"
