How Did This Happen?

I was just surfing around the Internet and came across this picture of the 1992 Dream Team. Aside from Chuck Daley's blue suit, there is something else in this photograph that doesn't belong. When I saw this picture, the song "One of these things is not like the other..." started playing in the back of my mind.

How on earth did Christian Laettner get on this dream team (while he was still in college no less?) I have nothing against the guy, but everyone else in the photo is either an All stars, NBA champion, Hall of Famer, or a combination of the three.

Again, I'm not trying to bash the guy, but I'm just baffled by this. It's kind of like Danny Glover taking over the lead role in Predator 2 trying to replace Arnold. I guess it should give me hope and help me realize that anything is possible.

  1. AGREED! My understanding is that #1 they were trying to transition from college players in the Olympics to NBA players and they thought this would help. #2 they had very high expectations for Laettner and thought he would rock the NBA. FAILED there.
