During the summer of 1992 in Barcelona, Spain, the United States Men's Olympic Basketball team, known simply as the "Dream Team," not only went undefeated and won the Gold Medal but will go down in history as the greatest collection of basketball talent to ever step on the court. They averaged an Olympic record 117.3 points per game and won each game by an average of almost 44 points. Everyone agreed that this team would be unbeatable, and it was. That summer, Michael Jordan was the key figure in forming the Dream Team. The 12-member roster was full of the era's best players including Charles Barkley, Larry Bird, Clyde Drexler, Patrick Ewing, Magic Johnson, Michael Jordan, Christian Laettner, Karl Malone, Chris Mullin, Scottie Pippen, David Robinson and John Stockton. Jordan averaged 12.7 points per game as Team USA rolled on in the semis with a 51 point win over Lithuania. Jordan led the way in the gold medal game against Croatia, scoring 22 points. Jordan, Ewing and fellow Dream Team member Chris Mullin are the only American men's basketball players to win Olympic gold as amateurs (in 1984) and professionals. These "Nike" size 13 sneakers are white with red and blue trim. On the outer ankle of each is an embroidered “Air Jordan Jumpman” logo. Embroidered on each tongue is “AIR JORDAN.” On the back of each shoe is the player number “9 in white rubber. The insoles have been removed since Jordan had hurt his foot and needed to use special insoles during the Olympics. The sneakers show game-use and appear to have no alterations of any kind. Someone has written “Michael Jordan” on the side of each sneaker in blue marker.
