The new Funko POP! NBA: Michael Jordan (1992 Team USA Navy Uniform) 10-Inch Jumbo Sized Funko Pop! Vinyl Figure dropped today at Walmart as an exclusive. It depicts Michael is in his 1992 Team USA navy jersey for this epic figure of the basketball star.
September 21, 1991, was the date that changed the history of basketball.
That day the legendary ‘Dream Team’ was born, the best basketball team has ever seen.
It all began in 1989 when FIBA opened the door and ended the double standard of not allowing NBA players to compete because they were professionals while European professional players were allowed to play.
With this legislative change in hand, it was clear to the United States that it was time to win back the Olympic gold medal after achieving a much-criticized bronze in Seoul ’88.
The veteran coach Chuck Daly, one of the most famous coaches of the moment, thanks to his successes with Detroit’s Bad Boys, was chosen to lead this all-star team. Daly was assisted by Lenny Wilkens, P. J. Carlesimo, and Mike Krzyzewski, showing no room for improvisation.
The Dream Team’s first game was on June 28, 1992, against Cuba in the Tournament of the Americas, with a resounding 136-57 victory.
This scandalous triumph was no coincidence, as evidenced by the 43.8-point difference by which they won their games at the Barcelona Olympics. Angola (+68), Croatia (+33), Germany (+43), Brazil (+44), Spain (+41), Puerto Rico (+38), Lithuania (+51) and Croatia (+32) were the victims in Barcelona.
“I have always said that we can only beat ourselves,” said Michael Jordan about the ‘Dream Team,’ making clear the confidence and superiority of the U.S. team over the rest of the rivals.
