But the fall of the Soviet Union happened a few months back, before the Winter Olympics and they were called the Unified Team, not the Soviet Union, it lost a lot of its luster from just the name change alone. Then add the fact that many of the better USSR were from Lithuania, who competed separately from the Unified Team, which the US crushed in the semis and you could say the big, bad, US bullied the brand new country who barely had its own government set up.

and it came in the form of Toni Kukoc of Croatia, who had been offered a multimillion dollar contract by the Chicago Bulls at a time when they were refusing to renegotiate the contract of Pippen, who was earning a relatively paltry $770,000.In a story that has become famous in the years since, Jordan followed up Daly's pregame speech by telling the rest of the locker room that he and Pippen would be the only ones defending Kukoc that day. They held him to four points on 2-for-11 shooting with seven turnovers in a 33-point victory before beating the Croatians again, by 32, in the gold-medal game.
