Magic admits what we already knew about the Dream Team

Magic admits what we already knew about the Dream Team

The original (and some would say "only") Dream Team had every great player of its day on the roster… … except for 1. Isiah Thomas.  And for years, we heard the stories about Zeke being frozen out.  I personally had never seen confirmation of this… until now. Magic also admits that he joined with Michael [...]
