Favorite Olympics Moment: Charles Barkley Delivers Dream Team Nightmare To Angola

New, comments

Yahoo! Sports wanted us to share one of our favorite Olympic moments from the past and the 1992 Dream Team quickly came to mind. I always recall how interesting it was to see Charles Barkley stand out among his talented peers in the International game. Barkley also provided a great laugh when, in the midst of a 38-7 start to what would eventually be a 68-point win over Angola, he elbowed an Angolan player in the chest after making yet another bucket. It was far more humorous than vicious and let the rest of the competition know that the Dream Team was going for the gold and not opposed to destroying their opponents in the process. Here's a clip with the famous 'bow at around 3:15.
