When the Dream Team assembled, I was only six years old. I had just learned how to shoot a basketball and I didn’t know much about what was going on about the team. The only thing I knew about the Dream Team was this poster puzzle my mom bought me.
And for the longest time, I only thought there were 10 guys on the team. But as I grew older and became a huge sports nut, I realized how great this team was. In my mind, this may have been the greatest team ever assembled other than these guys.
Chris Mullin was my favorite player so I was very proud to know that one of my favorites was part of something so big. And after watching the documentary last night, I was moved. The story of how they united as one and what they did to the game of basketball changed my perception of them. I was floored.
I don’t have a childhood memory of the Dream Team. I was too young. But this made me feel like I was part of the whole thing.
I was directed to YouTube to watch the thing since I wasn’t able to catch it the first time it aired. I’ll share it with you before it possibly gets pulled.
