Pippen reflects on '92 gold medal run

With all the starpower on this 2012 Team USA, everybody has been drawing comparisons to the '92 "Dream Team."

Some members of that '92 squad have weighed in on the unfounded claims that 2012 is better than the "Dream Team," included Michael Jordan, the best of the best.

The other Chicago player on that team, Scottie Pippen, recently sat down with Bulls.com to discuss what it was like playing in Barcelona that year. The Bulls had just put the finishing touches on the second championship in the midst of the first three-peat.

Pippen, now an ambassador for the Bulls, discusses such topics as the NBA stars' hesitance to participate in the Olympics, how the superstars on the team took to practice, and, of course, taking home the gold medal.

Check out the full article. It's a bit of a long read, but well worth it for a first-hand account from Pip himself.
