Meh, as you said, meaningless exhibition @ Dream Team


And more than likely, Daly wanted them to lose.

Compared to soccer --- would any coach really want their women to lose to U15 boys, regardless of the circumstances?

Yet the staggering result may not have been all it seemed. Team coaches later claimed the fix was in, to keep the megastars humble before the Olympics.

“He threw the game,” assistant coach Mike Krzyzewski claimed in the documentary, apparently told by Daly during the scrimmage: “We’re all right.”

“If you look at how much Jordan played and how he subbed the guys in, not picking up, not making any adjustments; he knew what he was doing.”

Yet Daly did not tell his assistants of the plan and Hill isn’t having it.

“Coach K said they threw it,” Hill said. “I love coach K, but I’m not buying it.”

But the college kids couldn’t dispute the next day’s result. They were slaughtered, with Jordan playing a lot more.

“The next day, we couldn’t get the ball over half-court,” Hill said.
