There was one — and only one — Dream Team. So that is the American view. But not everyone is American. As all knowledgable American basketball fans know, Lithuania is the country that has competed at a high level most consistently over the past six Olympics. Lithuania produced Arvydas Sabonis, Sarunas Marciulionis, Sarunas Jasikevicius, Linas Kleiza, Jonas Valenciunas, and Egle, among others. And now a film has been made about the 1992 Lithuanian national team, entitled “The Other Dream Team.”

Sarunas Jasikevicius: “I don’t get it. There are FIBA rules, if a player takes the ball and runs two meters, travelling must be called. Maybe the rules will be changed in the future, but at the moment that’s travelling. I’m not saying that they [referees] were indulgent towards Americans, or that we lost [the game] due to the referees’ fault. Absolutely not. Simply there are rules according which the game must be whistled, it doesn’t matter if it’s Petrauskas (a common surname in Lithuania) or Kobe Bryant running.”
