Charles Barkley quotes with the Dream Team:

• Asked about opponents looking on with awe: "Whoever put this team together made sure there would be some awe on it.''

• Asked about their first qualifying opponent: "What do I know about Cuba? The country is run by a scruffy-looking guy who smokes cigars.''

• Asked about their first opponent in Olympics: "I don't know anything about Angola but Angola is in trouble.''
