"Unfortunately, the finished product of the first episode was quite a letdown. Instead of jumping right in with stirring behind-the-scenes stories, episode 1 of The Dream Team Tapes is pretty much about Jack McCallum himself. The second episode is almost entirely context about the history of U.S. basketball at the Olympics...The third episode hits its stride immediately, as McCallum recounts how before social media he started the hype for the upcoming team...The episode really rips along and brings us back...It took three episodes to really get going, but Dream Team Tapes is a treat for longtime basketball fans like myself who delight in hearing stories of some of the larger than life greatest basketball players of all time."
