I thought it would be fun to relive the 1992 Olympic Dream Team and have it go up against some real competition. So, I broke out the All-Time All-Stars set with Real Life Basketball Classic and created a 1950's-60's All-Star team to play the Dream Teamers.

The roster for the 50s-60s team (which I'll just refer to as the "Stars") was made up of the following: Wilt Chamberlain, Bob Pettit, Elgin Baylor, Oscar Robertson, Jerry West, Bill Russell, Bob Cousy, George Mikan, Willis Reed, Dolph Schayes, and Jack Twyman.

The Dream Team, as you will recall, consisted of the following: David Robinson, Charles Barkley, Larry Bird, Michael Jordan, Magic Johnson, Patrick Ewing, Clyde Drexler, Karl Malone, John Stockton, Chris Mullin, Scottie Pippen, and Christian Laettner.

As for the game, the Stars got off to a fast start. The Dream Teamers had no answer for Elgin Baylor, as he poured in 18 first quarter points!! The Stars expanded their lead in the second quarter with Bob Pettit and Jerry West leading the way. Meanwhile, all of the Dream Teamers struggled offensively except Michael Jordan, who ended the half with 15 points. At the half, the Stars led the Dream Teamers 63-48.

In the second half, the Dream Teamers started to find their rhythm. Larry Bird heated up, scoring 11 3rd quarter points. David Robinson chipped in with 8 of his own to knock the Stars' lead to just 8 after 3 quarters. In the 4th quarter, Jordan put the Dream Teamers on his back, scoring a quick 8 points. Magic Johnson added 7 more, as the Dream Teamers got the fastbreak going a little bit. However, Baylor continued to score almost at will and Willis Reed buttoned down the Stars' defense and added 8 4th quarter points to stave off the Dream Teamers' rally. The Dream Teamers pressed the Stars and had some good results, but it was a little too little too late, as the Stars held on for a 117-115 victory. Elgin Baylor was the star of the game, finishing with 31 points. Jack Twyman contributed 22 for the Stars. Jordan led the Dream Teamers with 23 points, followed by Bird with 15.

50s-60s Stars 31 32 26 28 117

Dream Team 23 25 33 34 115


Game Note: *Oscar Robertson fouled out early in the 4th quarter, adding stress to a short-handed guard corps for the Stars

* John Stockton had only 4 points (all from the free-throw line), but contributed with several steals leading to points

* Willis Reed was a beast on the boards, both offensively and defensively. He also contributed 18 points.

Next up for the Dream Team, a challenge from some 70s and 80s NBA all-stars.
