Larry Bird Admits Team USA Could Beat Dream Team Because ‘I Haven’t Played in 20 Years and We’re All Old Now’


July 13, 2012

Kobe Bryant ruffled some pretty prestigious basketball feathers when he claimed that this year’s American men’s basketball team would defeat the 1992 Dream Team.

Players like Magic Johnson, Scottie Pippen, Charles Barkley and Michael Jordan all scoffed at the idea, saying that the Dream Team would lay the wood to this group of young whippersnappers.

Larry Bird, on the other hand, is taking a pretty reasonable approach to the whole thing.

Here’s what Larry Legend had to say, thanks to the Indiana Pacers’ Twitter page.
