Magic Johnson weighs in on Dream Team debate: We ‘had too many winners’ to lose

Kobe Bryant spoke. And the Dream Team has scoffed in response.

Following the trend already established by his 1992 Olympic teammates, Magic Johnson became the latest Dream Team member (and human being) to decry Kobe’s much-discussed comments that the current Olympic team would beat the legendary 1992 Olympic basketball team.

Magic sent out these tweets on Thursday:

By comparison, if you’re keeping score at home, the 2012 squad has zero hall-of-famers (so far), seven NBA titles (so far) and definitely does not have Michael Jordan.

Whoa. Magic might be selling the 2012 team way short with that one. That’s the kind of tweet the current squad’s players, if they were smart, would take as disrespect and use as “bulletin board material” in preparation for this hypothetical game we all want to see.

Magic joins the likes of other notable Dream Teamers Jordan, Charles Barkley and Scottie Pippen in deriding Kobe’s remarks. You’d think Kobe talked trash about their mothers, the way they seemed so insulted. That’s perhaps why Larry Bird’s tongue-in-cheek response was so perfect.
