The premiere of NBA TV's documentary, The Dream Team, gave the network its most-watched telecast ever on Wednesday evening, averaging 847,000 viewers, according to Nielsen.
Debuting June 13, the 90-minute documentary chronicles the 1992 USA Men's Basketball team, which was the first to allow NBA players to compete in international play. Nicknamed "The Dream Team," it is widely considered to be the best team in the history of sports. The documentary, marking the club's 20th anniversary of demolishing international opponents and returning the gold medal to the States after a defeat at the 1988 Games, featured never-before-seen practice footage and interviews with all 12 of the players.
NBA TV will re-air The Dream Team Friday, Saturday and July 4-5.
