OLYMPICS DAILY REPORT : Wilkens Likes Team's Versatility

July 19, 1996

U.S. Coach Lenny Wilkens said he thinks Dream Team III "has more versatility" than the original Dream Team, even if it isn't as good.

"The moniker of this team is going to be that we'll come at you defensively," Wilkens said. "We'll guard you all over the floor."

Wilkens added: "Every one of them will be in the Hall of Fame eventually, so it's not like we are lacking for great talent here."

Gary Payton, going to the Hall of Fame? Mitch Richmond? Check back around, oh, Dream Team V.
