Michael Jordan absolutely laughed when he heard Kobe Bryant say that the 2012 Olympic basketball team could beat The Dream Team of '92. Kobe responded to those remarks by telling J.A. Adande, "he knows I'm a bad motherf****r." That should've been the end of it. But now, The Black Mamba stood by his stance once again and even added a little fuel to the fire today in Spain:
"People who think we can't beat that team for one game, they're crazy," Bryant said. "To sit there and say we can't, it's ludicrous."
Asked if that's a viewpoint he plans to share directly with Jordan next time they cross paths -- after MJ opined that opening up this back and forth was "not one of the smarter things [Bryant] ever could have done" -- Kobe answered: "He knows. They got beaten by a college select team once. Doesn't mean we're a better team than them, but s---, we can beat them one time."
Damn. That's like bringing up that one-time bad relationship that we would all like to forget. Guess we're in for another round of commentary, courtesy of The Dream Team.
