FSN Contributor Jason Whitlock writes animately about the Original 1992 Dream Team. He amusedly states that Christian Laettner, John Stockton, and Chris Mullin were handpicked because they were Caucasian American. Whitlock said that "they weren't going to send Larry Bird and 11 black guys to Barcelona". According to him, Negro-American players James Worthy, Dominique Wilkins, Isiah Thomas, and Shaquille O'Neal were more deserving.
Whitlock gives Stockton credit as one of the greatest 50 players of all-time. But dissing fellow Caucasian Chris Mullin by saying that he wasn't good enough. He said Mullin was a poor man's Reggie Miller and condemns him profusely for being a bad defender.
He kills the claim that Mullin was on the team for outside shooting. Whitlock sarcastically states "Child Please", they're wasn't a zone defense invented that could've stop Jordan, Barkley, Robinson, Ewing, Malone, Pippen, Bird and Magic in 1992.
Hell, Barkley hit seven of eight three-pointers during the Olympics".
Laettner gets off easier than Mullin. Whitlock gives him a nod for being a great collegiate athlete. But feels that NBA great Shaquille O'Neal should've been elected on the team for his "once in a generation talent". He concludes by saying "holding one college spot" was designed to find another Anglo-Caucasian player.
Conclusion: This is the most animated feature this side of Bugs Bunny. Several points are very interested and true. However, the article is contrived and cynical. Worst of all, Whitlock doesn't have any objective claims from any Afro-American Dream Team players to back up his argument.
