The American basketball Dream Team formed for the 1992 Olympic Games is considered the most outstanding team ever assembled among team sports.
Some figures of the United States team’s campaign in Barcelona 1992 help give the dimension of how unbeatable the squad led by coach Chuck Daly was.
The Dream Team was formed by: Magic Johnson, Charles Barkley, Karl Malone, John Stockton, Patrick Ewing, David Robinson, Larry Bird, Chris Mullin, Scottie Pippen, Michael Jordan, Christian Laettner, and Clyde Drexler.

They had a spectacular 57.8% shooting percentage in the eight games from the gold campaign. Their opponents, on the other hand, shot only 36.5% from the field against the Americans.
The Dream Team averaged 117.3 points per game in the competition while allowing the opposition only 73.5 points per game.
Filled with stars that overflowed with talent both on offense and defense, the American team ended up suffocating their opponents: they won their eight games in Barcelona by an average difference of 43.8 points.
The match against Angola was the one that was the furthest from competitive for the Americans. The talent disparity was so great that the Angolans scored only 48 points, taking 116—a lighthearted match for NBA stars.
The Croatia of the beastly duo Drazen Petrovic and Toni Kukoc was the opponent that gave the USA Team the most trouble if one can adopt that perspective. The United States had its least comfortable scoring game in the gold medal decider by winning 117-85 (32 points difference).
Of the 320 minutes on the court, the American team led the score in 306 minutes. The Americans’ most adverse moment during the competition was an early 4-0 loss to Spain. The score of the game was 122 to 81 for Michael Jordan and his team.
In no situation did coach Chuck Daly stop the game from making adjustments to the team throughout the competition. It was eight games, no timeouts.
