A must read for any hoops head. So many details about the Dream Team and what happened before, during and after the Barcelona Olympics.

Jack McCallum treated us to an inside look at the greatest team ever assembled. I always feel lucky to have experienced the golden age of the NBA and the Dream Team just cemented the legendary status of everyone involved. I loved the way McCallum interweaves his account with more recent recollections from the players themselves. No one but McCallum could have written this. I finished this in a day and a half and couldn’t get enough. One of the best historical nonfiction books I’ve read in a long time.

Great book on the greatest sports teams ever assembled! Love reading about what Michael Jordan and Scottie Pippen did to Toni Kukoc!
