Acclaimed sports journalist Jack McCallum delivers the untold story of the greatest team ever assembled: the 1992 U.S. Olympic men's basketball team that captivated the world, kindled hoop dreams, and remade the NBA into a global sensation.
Jack McCallum, a veteran sports journalist and longtime member of the staff of Sports Illustrated, is the author of Seven Seconds or Less and Unfinished Business, as well as coauthor, with L. Jon Wertheim, of Foul Lines. He is the recipient of the Curt Gowdy Award from the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame and the National Women's Sports Foundation Media Award. He lives with his wife in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania. Reader of over four hundred audiobooks, Dick Hill has won three coveted Audie Awards and been nominated numerous times. He is also the recipient of several AudioFile Earphones Awards. AudioFile includes Dick on their prestigious list of Golden Voices.
Twenty years ago, a dozen basketball players were dispatched to Barcelona to represent the United States in the Olympics. The team was something the world of sports had never seen before, and probably never will again. Guest host David Greene talks with Jack McCallum about his new book on the players, Dream Team.
