SUPPORTING CAST: It's hard to argue against the 1992 team when it comes to bringing the likes of Karl Malone, Chris Mullin, John Stockton, Scottie Pippen, Clyde Drexler, David Robinson or Patrick Ewing off the bench depending on who Chuck Daly started. About the only NBA great who wasn't on that team was Isiah Thomas, because of his long-standing feud with Jordan. While this year's team has more rising stars such as Kevin Love, Russell Westbrook and James Harden, injuries have cost Mike Krzyzewski the services of Dwyane Wade, Dwight Howard, Derrick Rose and now Blake Griffin. I think the biggest difference, as Ewing told me for a story in today's newspaper, was the size and depth at center. I am not going to argue that Tyson Chandler is as good as Ewing and Robinson, but I think that he and Anthony Davis, who took Griffin's place, are better defensively and will be more than capable of holding their own in London.
