238 - A Tale Of Two Dream Teams
At the 1992 Barcelona Olympics, the only team anyone could talk about was the US men's basketball team, AKA 'The Dream Team'. It was the first time NBA players were allowed to compete at the Games and they were expected to dominate the tournament. At the same Olympics, Lithuania was competing for the first time since 1928, less than 18 months after declaring independence from the USSR. They had a lot of talent on their basketball team, but the country had no money to send their players. A story of revolution, a rock n' roll band and a whole load of tie dye. This is A Tale Of Two Dream Teams.
