Once upon a time, there was a Dream Team

Lenny Wilkens, assistant coach on the 1992 Dream Team, and Rod Thorn, Team USA selection committee member, talk about one very intense practice.

Wilkens: Our last scrimmage, Magic’s team was dominating Michael’s team. And the guys were teasing Michael, because he was playing golf every morning. Well, that did it. The whole thing turned around.

Thorn: He got upset, so he started to score every time down the floor. One time he drove, and the refs called, like, a real tick-tack foul. So Magic booted the ball up to the ceiling: “This is ridiculous! Just like the NBA! He gets every call!”
