And now, in honor of their 20th anniversary, the NBA TV documentary The Dream Team gathers the players that coach Chuck Daly, who passed away in 2009, led to victory (including Michael Jordan, Magic Johnson, Larry Bird and Charles Barkley). "It was a moment, really, for the game of basketball," says then-assistant coach Mike Krzyzewski (head coach at Duke University and now also the head coach of the U.S. team going for gold at the London Olympics this summer).

Charles Barkley, Saturday Night Live
Charles Barkley hosted Saturday Night Live for the third time which could only mean one thing — Scottie Pippen now owes him $75,000! For his monologue, Barkley offered the real (and very simple) explanation behind five-month National Basketball Association lockout that just ended last month. "In a nutshell, the problem is — ever since I left — the NBA's been crap and everybody's broke. The end."
