The 1984 team drew early comparisons to the 1960 team and rightfully so. The '84 squad featured Hall of Famers Michael Jordan, Patrick Ewing, and Chris Mullen, plus a bunch of other future NBA players. The USSR boycotted the 1984 Los Angeles Games in retaliation for the US's boycott of the 1980 Games in Moscow, so the Americans would have to wait another four years to avenge the 1972 gold medal game.
The '84 team made light work of their competition, only being challenged by West Germany, beating them by 11. They coasted the rest of the way, destroying Spain by 31 in the gold medal game. Jordan took care of the offense by dropping 17 a game and Ewing took care of the defense by swatting 2 blocks per contest. Let's not forget about Mully and Steve Alford averaging double-figures along with Alvin Robertson chipping in with 2 steals per game. After the US won the gold, head coach Bobby Knight had some choice words for the Soviets, giving the USSR fuel for the 1988 Games.
