Just in time for the 2012 Olympics, the fine folks over at NBA TV present what looks to be the best professional hoops documentary since HBO’s Magic and Bird doc . Simply titled “The Dream Team,” the documentary examines that legendary 1992 US hoops squad, featuring every star NBA player not named Isaiah Thomas and collegiate great Christian Laettner. Considering the theatrics that surely occurred behind closed doors – putting fierce competitors like MJ, Bird and Magic on the same squad had to lead to some of the best shit-talking ever witnessed – this is a must-watch for any hoops head out there.
If you’re fortunate enough to have NBA TV on your cable box, tune in at 9pm ET on June 13th and enjoy. That leaves the rest of us about two weeks to make a new friend with DirecTV.
