To compete in the ’92 Summer Olympic Games in Barcelona, the USA assembled what is arguably the best basketball team of all time. Jordan, Bird, Johnson, Ewing, Robinson, Barkley, Pippen, Malone, Stockton, Drexler, Mullen and Laettner made up ‘The Dream Team’.
Airing on NBA TV, the documentary The Dream Team, offers an inside look into the selection process, the road leading to the Barcelona Olympics, and on-court battles between team members. The Dream Team even shares untold stories of a demoralising defeat to college students right before the Barcelona Games.
The Dream Team dominated the world and left Barcelona with gold, leading each game with an average of over 40 points. 20 years on, they are still highly regarded as the best of the best, being dubbed “The greatest team ever assembled in the history of team sports”.
The Dream Team airs on June 13.
Just last week, Saturday Night Live celebrated its 100th Digital Short in true SNL style.
With the likes of Justin Beiber, Justin Timberlake and Usher on board, the Lonely Island team took us back to the past with a memorable Digital Short that features Lady Gaga, Natalie Portman and John Hamm. Michael Bolton and Will Ferrell also drop by to help, too!
Watch the celebration over at NBC.
IKEA is venturing into the world of technology. Teaming up with Chinese technology manufacturer TCL, IKEA has unveiled its new home entertainment package — The UPPLEVA.
The UPPLEVA line is designed to eliminate the cluttered look in the lounge room. It’s achieving this by discreetly hiding that unwanted mess of cables and combining a 1080p HDTV, Blu-Ray player and a 2.1 surround sound system into a customisable cabinet. The UPPLEVA also features a wireless sub-woofer and all-in-one remote to make life — as is always with IKEA — a little simpler!
Coming in various HDTV screen sizes and a number of different cabinets, you’ll find UPPLEVA in Stockholm, Milan, Paris, Gdansk and Berlin in June 2012. The rest of the world will have to wait until mid 2013.
