The Dream Vs The Redeem….. FIGHT!!

I know all the Jordanites will lose their minds but Mike and Mike made a great point this morning on their program, The Redeem team is better. On the Original Dream Team, Bird, Magic(retired) were way past their prime. Key matchups would be Scottie Pippen guarding LeBron James, a over the hill Magic watching Chris Paul blow by him and a more physical and athletic Dwight Howard vs Patrick Ewing and David Robinson.

Another point was that the Original Dream team was feared and left the rest of world in awe. The other teams just wanted their autographs and were no where close to as good as the international teams that play now. Most of them having their own star NBA players on their team such as France, Germany, Spain.

My prediction………..

Redeem Team……..98

Dream Team………101

Starting Line Up Match UP’s

Point Guard – Magic Johnson(retire) v. Chris Paul
Shooting Guard – Michael Jordan(In Prime) v. Kobe Bryant
Small Forward – Larry Bird(Past Prime) v. LeBron James
