2012 Olympics: This USA could beat the Dream Team

Team USA just flat out dropped an atom bomb on Nigeria at the 2012 Olympics, and there’s really not a nicer, more politically correct way to describe what happened in London.

Destroyed is to soft a word. Obliterated just isn’t harsh enough.

156-73. That was the final score. Nigera lost by 83 points.

What this proves to me, is that if this USA basketball team was firing on all cylanders and everythign went right for them, they could certainly beat the Dream Team.

Basketball blasphemy, I know.

Get over it.

People on the other side of the argument act like this group of players are nothing but a bunch of scrubs.

They’re not.

You could talk matchups all you want; Who would guard Ewing? Who would guard MJ?

All you have to do is look at a game like the one USA just played to figure things out.

Sure, the Dream Team would beat this one 60 or 70 percent of the time, but if Melo, Kobe, Westbrook and co. were on their game like they were today, the Dream Team would have a tough time getting things done.

Do you think 2012’s Team USA could EVER beat the Dream Team? Let us know in the comments section.
