By Mark Delaney, 6 years ago
Take any basketball fan who grew up in the 80's and 90's and sit them down with anyone from today's NBA and ask them who would win in a game: the 1992 Olympic Dream Team or this year's gold medal counterpart. The debate would rage on for days.

"Bird and Magic would wipe the floor with those slouches!"
"No way! Lebron would power over all of them at once like a bowling ball!"

Now 2K Sports is giving you the chance to settle the debate once and for all with both Olympic teams coming to The '92 Dream Team was the first ever to use active NBA players and they eventually lived up to their nickname, winning the gold medal in Barcelona, Spain. They averaged 44 more points than their opponents en route to what is still regarded as the greatest and most dominant sports performance of all-time.

This year's gold medal winning team was sometime referred to as the "New Dream Team" with players like Kevin Durant, Lebron James, and Chris Paul. But can the 2012 squad really compete with the Dream Team, which contains 11 Hall of Fame players on its roster?

It's for you to decide in NBA 2K13. You can pick up the game when it releases on October 2nd.
