Program gives ‘underdog’ athletes a shot at the Olympics
The U.S. men’s basketball team has been dominating the Olympics since NBA players were granted permission to compete in 1989. The 1992 “Dream Team” won every game on the Olympic stage with a 44-point average margin of victory. Team USA has a winning percentage of 96%, having come out on top in 130 of 135 games.
“Team of Dreams” believes it’s time to give the opportunity to play at the Olympic level to people struggling to deal with the economic, racial, and political divisions that affect our country. Taking a free market approach to the system of selecting America’s next Dream Team, Team of Dreams proposes allowing fresh faces to tryout for the team. The next Olympic gold could be won by an unknown, by anybody.
The Team of Dreams project seeks to unite our country’s avid sports fans and “show all Americans that the characteristics that made this country the greatest nation in the history of the world are still alive and well” by providing any and all Americans with the chance to achieve the American Olympic dream.
Team of Dreams point out: “America loves to root for Team USA. We love it even more when we are an underdog. After all, America was born an underdog.”
