It was 1 in the morning. They were flummoxed by a safe. Jordan hadn’t opened it in years, and he couldn’t remember the combination. Everything else stopped as this consumed him. After 10 failed attempts, the safe would go into a security shutdown and need to be blown open. None of the usual numbers worked. Nine different combinations failed; they had one try left. Jordan focused. He decided it had to be a combination of his birthday, Feb. 17, and old basketball numbers. He typed in six digits: 9, 2, 1, 7, 4, 5. Click. The door swung open and he reached in, rediscovering his gold medal from the 1984 Olympics. It wasn’t really gold anymore. It looked tarnished, changed — a duller version of itself.

Twenty years after The Dream Team dominated unlike any other sports team in Olympic history, NBA TV’s behind the scenes look at the squad brought back many moments of nostalgia. The documentary entitled The Dream Team, narrated by Edward Burns, began by looking at the history of Olympic basketball, including how the Soviet Union team won the gold in 1972 and 1988 just when it seemed like the Americans’amateur players were good enough to win the gold every year.

I am not, as Ina Fried can attest, much of a sports fan. But I love this video from ESPN on a dude who lives his life disappointing those who are and who would dearly like to meet a superstar.

Personally, I want to meet the person with the same name as Lindsay Lohan.

Enjoy:

Jordan’s press conference at the end is just awesome.  That dude was just the man on so many levels.

nbaoffseason:

NBA Playoffs Throwback: Miami Heat vs. Chicago Bulls, 1997 Eastern Conference Finals; The ‘won’t shake Zo’s hand’ game. And, 7:25 if you want to see Pat Riley tell MJ “fuck you.”

*Game 1, 8PM Sunday on TNT
