“Let me cut you off,” replied Johnson.

“It doesn’t matter who you put. [the Dream Team] would beat them. It doesn’t really matter [by how much] as long as you win.

“The Dream Team had it all. Anything you want in a basketball team, we’ve got it.

“We could shoot from the outside, we could dominate you on the inside, we played great defense.

“You have Scottie Pippen and Michael Jordan on the wings and also David Robinson and Patrick Ewing which dominated at the time.

Charles barkley was unbelievable. We had the best players in the world: John Stockton, Karl Malone, Chris Mullin and Clyde Draxler. It was an incredible team. “
