Really? Wow. Imagine that team with Shaq instead of Laettner. Ridiculous.

IIRC, the three finalists for the college player slot were Laettner, Shaq and Harold Miner.

Wow. Laettner at least went on to have a respectable NBA career.

Off-topic, but... i bumped into a fella wearing a Harold Miner jersey the other day. Good to meet an Australian who knows as much trivial shit about the NBA as i do. It's pretty rare. With that said, not the best way to rep the Heat.

Still on the subject of Harold Miner, I recall reading that despite only playing four years in the league, he's still living well and hasn't blown all his money. A lesson for the Antoine Walkers of the world.

I guess he never really had that sense of security to be able to get his splurge on, unlike some of the broke NBA alumni who did get their big pay day.

Here's a couple of articles from the last couple years regarding where he got off to, he willingly exiled himself into seclusion because of all the Baby Jordan stuff:

Pretty funny as Chuck was surrounded by crowds everywhere he went while Stockton could walk the streets of Barcelona freely, even Americans didn't know who he was. :D

I suppose, though his salary and endorsement deal was reasonably significant in its day. He could probably offer some good advice to the young players of today.

Much as I hate Isiah the executive, I always respected his game(I'll never forget his early 80s playoff duel against Bernard King). It was a disgrace he wasn't on the Dream Team, but it was either him or Jordan. I'm sure Larry Legend didn't want him either after those blood feuds with Detroit.

I was ticked about Laettner too, but Shaq Fu got the last laugh - four rings and a spot in the HOF.

"A lot of people don't understand why I stopped playing was because I had two knee surgeries and I had a degenerative joint in my knee, so it was just too much wear and tear, and I ended up with very little cartilage in my knee," Miner said.

Huh, if Miner continued playing then he would have ended up like Brandon Roy.

Didn't know that C-Webb, Grant Hill and Penny Hardaway were in the USA Select team that time.

Piece from GQ.
An Oral History of the Dream Team

Some bits:


Chuck Daly LIKE A BOSS.
Mike Krzyzewski (Team USA assistant coach): The first meeting as a coaching staff, Chuck says to P.J. and I, "Both of you guys have got to learn one thing." So we've got our notebooks, and we're ready to write this down. And he says, "Both of you have to learn to ignore." We said, "What do you mean?" "You college guys—you're looking for every little thing, and you make big things out of it. We're not going to be sticklers. These guys are men. If there's something that's big, we'll take care of it."


Nathaniel Butler (official NBA photographer): We were sitting on the baseline. Magic is backing a guy down, and the guy on defense is yelling at his bench, "Now! Now!" And on the bench, one guy's pulling a camera out of his sock and taking a photo of his teammate.


Kim Bohuny (NBA manager of international events): We had a dinner with Prince Rainier and Prince Albert. There's very strict protocol. You know, you can't eat until Prince Rainier eats—things like that. We were reviewing it with the team beforehand, and I think it shocked some of our guys.

Miller: They said if the prince puts his fork down and stops eating, you all better stop eating. And Charles said, "Well, I hope he stops when I'm done eating my meal, because I'm eating my meal."


lol owned.
Hubbard: There was one moment where Krzyzewski claps his hands and says, "Okay, plenty of time." And Michael is at the other end of the court, and he shouts out: "Fuck that! We're going to win this game. Fuck that." You gotta figure Coach K never heard that at a Duke practice.


Magic spewing the truth.
Wilkens: Our last scrimmage, Magic's team was dominating Michael's team. And the guys were teasing Michael, because he was playing golf every morning. Well, that did it. The whole thing turned around.

Thorn: He got upset, so he started to score every time down the floor. One time he drove, and the refs called, like, a real tick-tack foul. So Magic booted the ball up to the ceiling: "This is ridiculous! Just like the NBA! He gets every call!"

Hubbard: Magic was saying, "This must be what it's like playing in Chicago Stadium," because Michael was getting the calls. And Michael said, "Well, this is the '90s, not the '80s."


lol Bird.
McIntyre: I had about eighty basketballs in my room in Barcelona and had to get the players to sign them all. Bird was the last guy, and he says, "What's the quickest anyone's done it?" I said, "Anywhere from eight minutes to twenty." And Bird said, "I'm going to be the fastest. Time me." So he signs them, and he throws me the last one: "Okay, what is it?" "Whoa, four and a half minutes!" And he goes, "Yes!" Competitive right to the end.


Psycho.
Marsalis: I saw a lot of the guys around the hotel. I saw Jordan sitting watching Angola on tape, just staring, looking for weaknesses. I said, "I don't even want to bother you, but why are you watching this game?" And he said, "I always take my opponent seriously. I never underestimate anyone." It wasn't lost on me that he was the only guy watching the game.
