Old school: 1984 Olympic Team v NBA All-Stars

So much great content in this video. This is legitimate old school as we watch the 1984 Team USA take on the NBA All-Stars of that same year, including Michael Jordan in his infancy. This of course was in the days when the Olympic team was made up of amateurs. I like when they describe Jordan as a future Walter Davis. Credit the fact that Jordan was indeed mentioned as one day potentially the greatest player to ever play basketball, even at that point.

The squads were as follows:
