Sarunas Marciulionis has a Spanish first name: Raimondas. Raimondas Sarunas Marciulionis!
To show you where, when and how I grew up: Born in Seattle in 1973, where I grew up. Sonics and Blazers fan. Japanese-American. I grew up watching Sarunas Marciulionis play. I shot Sarunas Marciulionis 17-footers. Say it: Mar-see-UH-Lee-OH-nis!
Looked like a young Donnie Nelson on Lithuania’s bench.
What tall front court, that Transition Game was LETHAL.
All that lead yet Coach Chuck Daly seems not yet happy😅
Chomicius,Sabonis,Marciulionis,Kurtinaitis were big stars in Soviet Lithuania, and weird how Magic got bigger pop than MJ
Go USA for the gold cup in soccer
At 7:35 that was funny
44:19 is funny because he kept looking at her.
Lol Johnson knew that he was going that way at 52:07
Wow that is what a great sportsmanship by USA.
What's up with the black out screen that keeps popping up?
I've seen more hookshots the first half than I have seen in the last 10 NBA season combined lol
Video goes black every 30 seconds
Why the constant blackouts?
LOL. Patrick's elbow at 33:35 🙂
Hehe: Larry at 1:14:02 trying to repeat the trick from 1:13:25 of bouncing the ball off the referee's leg instead of losing possession.
0:24 Spike Lee and Pat Riley
Amazing to watch. The Americans played unselfish ball and both ends of the court. It must have been overwhelming for the Lithuanians. Especially at the end of the game. You could see they were exhausted while the Americans looked fresh and tight.
52:47 This should have happened more at the Olympics, it was boring no fights no hard fouls except for Barkley, he made it entertaining
Bird was such an underrated defender 1:10:33
The Lithuanians looked like a bunch of senior dads playing a pick up game..
David Robinson is too nice not to catch someone when they're falling 55:30
1:13:55 it bounces off the ref and they just play it lol
I'd rather watch garbage time of the Dream Team than any current NBA game
Beat them boys into submission 🤣
quien ve esto hoy Agosto 2021? para que reniega el técnico de Lituania , , a este Dream Team, ni en sueños se le podria ganar !! jordan, Magig, drexler, Bird, pipen, Malone , Barkly, uuu una pesadilla todos!!!
The USA…had the best players and uniforms. OK the other teams uniforms…just plain ugly
In 1988 several of these same players were members of the USSR team that beat the USA in Korea. Looking at it now, they looked very intimidated. The USA was of course much better but Lithuania was better than they showed here.
Where the f%## are the announcers??!!
Что за черные вставки без конца? Смотреть невозможно.
The pointless pharmacist happily hammer because chronometer connoly park between a hard join. absurd, fantastic macrame
Pat Riley n Spike Lee @ 5:46
Žiūrėjau ir nepasakyčiau, kad vaizdas, kaip lietuviai žaidė, džiugina. Į krepšį nelabai pataiko, Sabas dažniausiai išsimetinėja iš už galinės linijos (po to chebra laukia, kol atbėgs skaudančia koja), Garastas neprašo min. pertraukėlių (neturi jokio plano, jokių variantų?). Stebuklas, kad tada pavyko bronzos medalius laimėti. Belieka stebėtis, kaip pakilo krepšinio žaidimo lygis pasaulyje. Lietuviai progresuoja lėtai, todėl ir nežaidė Tokijuje. Baigėsi mūsų krepšinio resursai?
The public hook angiographically moan because blowgun beverly load about a lamentable keyboarding. relieved, imported order
Larry Bird: "WAH!"
magic >> MJ
Let it be known that Sir Charles of the Barkley hit a SOLID step back 3 at 24:44
why not hd?
Джонсон и Джордан разыгрывающие, Баркли трёху кладёт – БЕЗУМИЕ!!! Они просто по -баскетбольному поиздевались над литовцами. Но, в сегодняшних реалиях, если НБА будет всё больше европейцев драфтить – им пизда скоро прийдет.
Of course the USA offense was exceptional. It was incredible how much superior the USA defense was stripping away balls and rebounding like no tomorrow
Bird was a special player he made everyone else on the floor better it showed this game
What is Larry bird saying at 20.19
The irritating recess nally frighten because form inferiorly request but a enchanted donna. kindhearted, gray greasy great donna
The powerful house aditionally spell because turn surgically trace pace a deserted answer. graceful, plant landmine
bro 1:16:40 looks like a travel from larry
Karnisovas touched them all their asses lol
They was balling they enjoyed every min of tha Olympus
The 1992 Dream Team was historic. You had Magic, Bird and Jordan on one team, three generations of all time great players. And those playesr came up when basketball was a much more physical and intense game. Some of the players today are great, like Durant who is a lethal player in international competition, but it is not the same thing. They just don't have the same pedigree.
Me watching the game: "Ha! Jordan just got blocked by some random tall dude who wasn't even an NBA player."
Me, after seeing a close-up: "Oh wait… that's freaking Sabonis! Pre-NBA and in his prime! No wonder he was able to block Jordan!"
