Barkley was born on Feb. 20, 1963.

The foul might have been just a minor footnote had the odds been more even.  On average, the Angolan players were 4 inches shorter and 25 pounds lighter than the Americans

When Barkley threw his elbow, the Dream Team was on a 31-0 run and ended up winning the game 116-48.

The 68 point spread was the Dream Team's biggest margin of victory.  Fittingly, their smallest margin of victory came during the gold-medal game, and yet they still beat Croatia by 32 points.
