If the Dream Team gets time to prepare, I think they win in four.  They’re just too big and physical for today’s players to deal with.

 That's a million TPs. Just a perfectly built roster.

1996 Dream Team is just too strong down low. Payton and Pippen are elite perimeter defenders, whereas guys like Lillard and Adebayo would be smoked by their counterparts.

A 12-man current All-USA team for me, would look like:

Curry - Lillard
Harden - Butler - Beal
LeBron - Leonard - PG13
Durant - Tatum
AD - Adebayo
2021 Minnesota Timberwolves:
PG: Trae Young / Jamal Murray / Jordan Clarkson
SG: Bradley Beal / Terry Rozier
SF: Bogdan Bogdanovic / Will Barton / Saddiq Bey
PF: Harrison Barnes / Aaron Gordon
C: Joel Embiid / John Collins / Mason Plumlee

Bird,Barkely and Jordans trash talking alone would beat today's teams. LOL

I agree, but the only thing that might give today’s team a fighting chance is the 3 point shot, and spread the floor.  Pippen on Durant would be fun to watch.  The glove Gary Payton going at Lilliard or Curry would be fun too.

Bird and Jordan are not in the '96 Dream Team. Although The Glove alone is a heck of a trash talker

Partially correct: Bird and Jordan were not on the '96 Olympic team BUT there is no such thing as the '96 Dream Team as there is only one Dream Team, the '92 team.

Do you mean if the Dream Team from '96 at their ages today versus the current squad? That still might be close.

If not, '96 is considerably better...obviously.

This makes me think of the game of zones battle scene with today’s stars verses the 92 team.  Look it up if you haven’t seen it.  Hilarious.
