BARCELONA -- Dream Team. L’Equipe du Reve. Equipo de Ensueno. Tim Snova.
A unit for a total of 49 days, from the first night in La Jolla till the MGM Grand charter touched down in the USA yesterday morning, the Dream Team created indelible memories for itself while doing what outside forces asked it to do. Winning the gold medal was never an issue to anyone but the United States. Showing the rest of the basketball world -- next to soccer/football, the second-largest sporting community on the planet -- exactly where it stood and where it needed to go was the Dream Team’s true mission.
