  • East Coast All-Stars set to honor 1992 Dream Team in Barcelona

    Share Zagsblog Share Zagsblog
    In the summer of 1992 the greatest collection of basketball players ever assembled came together in Barcelona, Spain. All-time greats like Michael Jordan, Magic Johnson, and Larry Bird (to name a few) rolled through the Olympic Games creating a Dream Team not likely to be witnessed again.

    To honor the 1992 team’s accomplishments, USA East Coast Basketball Director Guy Rancourt, in conjunction with Moneyball Sportsware, Cleveland Brothers-CAT, and Anthony Travel, has announced USA East Coast will prepare in New York City, then head to Barcelona, Spain to participate in a series of commemorative games and activities. Columbia University will serve as host August 1st and 2nd for the team’s two-day Training Camp. Once in Barcelona, the team will follow in the footsteps of the 1992 team with activities, time with some of the participants, and a trio of friendly contests against some of the best players Spain’s Liga ACB has to offer.

    Here is the team’s roster and coaching staff:
