With the spectacle of the Barcelona Olympics being the centerpiece for the ‘Dream Team,’ many forget that because the 1988 only received a bronze medal, the team that featured Magic, Bird, and Jordan, first had to qualify to play in those Olympics!
The 1992 Tournament of the Americas (now the ‘FIBA Americas Championship’) was hosted at the Memorial Coliseum in Portland, Oregon starting June 27 until July 5, 1992.
The first game that the Dream Team ever played was on U.S. soil. The cheers and excitement as they announced the 12 players can be felt. Portland was not only cheering for their hometown hero Clyde Drexler during the introductions, but for Michael Jordan and Scottie Pippen, whose Chicago Bulls just defeated the Blazers in the NBA Finals no less than two weeks before the game.
They also cheered loudly as bitter rivals Karl Malone and John Stockton were announced as they did for Charles Barkley and Patrick Ewing, and for living legends, Larry Bird and Magic Johnson. It is truly something amazing to watch.
Before the tip-off, the Cuban team took a group photo with the Dream team. Watch the Dream Team in their first six games – Cuba, Canada, Panama, Argentina, Puerto Rico, and Venezuela.
