NBA TV’s “The Dream Team” documentary is a must-watch for a lot of reasons, not the least of which is the treasure trove of archival footage these people have been sitting on for 20 years. It’s things like this clip — John Stockton walking through the crowded streets of Barcelona, talking to Americans who have no idea who he is, like some sort of proto-”Punk’d” — that make the film so much fun. If it had been just game footage of Team USA blowing out every team by 40, that might get boring.
But between little scenes like this, seeing young Chris Webber dominate a bunch of future Hall of Famers, some footage from the legendary Monaco practices and a hundred other things, you have to see it. As NBA TV is a cable channel, it’ll be replayed roughly 1,000 times, so make sure to catch one of them. After all, where else will you see one of the best players ever go completely unrecognized by people who are wearing his face on their shirts.
