Dream Team II Wins Few Friends for Its Obnoxious Behavior

August 13, 1994

Dream team? More like our worst nightmare.

Once again, a bunch of headstrong, trash-talking basketball players from the United States has shown the world why our country has so many problems. Whatever happened to respect, dignity and sportsmanship? This in-your-face tactic to embarrass your opponent is against everything my parents taught me about sports.

I can live with the idea that these jerks can continue to play professional sports. I just won't watch. But let's try to represent our country with a great team of respectful players and show the world what we want to become, not what we are, a bunch of disrespectful, arrogant jerks.
