1984 U.S. Olympic basketball team

Those who watched the ESPN documentary last night were reminded that Michael Jordan was on that team and it won a gold medal. As Hog fans we know that Joe Kleine and Alvin Robertson also got gold medals on that team in 1984.

But SI.com reminded me of who didn’t make the final roster:

Charles Barkley
John Stockton
Karl Malone
Joe Dumars

For the record; the roster:
Centers: Patrick Ewing, Jon Koncak
Forwards: Joe Kleine, Sam Perkins, Waymon Tisdale, Jeff Turner
Guards: Steve Alford, Vern Fleming, Chris Mullin, Alvin Robertson, Leon Wood. And Michael Jordan.

SWC players: Koncak (SMU), Kleine, Robertson
SEC players: Turner (Vandy), Fleming (Georgia).
