 CHARLOTTE, N.C. (CBS/AP) — Michael Jordan says there’s no way Kobe Bryant and this year’s USA Olympic basketball team could’ve beaten the 1992 Dream Team.

Jordan told The Associated Press Thursday that he laughed, “I absolutely laughed” when hearing Bryant’s comments that the squad training in Las Vegas could take Jordan and company.

Jordan says there was “no comparison” which team was better, adding that Bryant comparing the two teams “is not one of the smarter things he ever could have done.”

After Team USA’s exhibition win over the Dominican Republic on Thursday night, Kobe responded to MJ.

From CBSSports.com:

“So what? He knows I’m a bad mother[expletive],” Bryant said. “I’m not really tripping.”

“The fact is, they have [Patrick] Ewing and [David] Robinson and those big guys, it’s tough. If you’re asking me, ‘Can you beat them one game?’ Hell yeah, we can beat them in one game. You didn’t ask me if we could beat them in a 7-game series. In one game, we can beat them. No question about it.”
