CB: Yeah, but if he's not playing well, it'll reflect on my team. He came to my defense. He admitted he was playing horrible.
SI: Whom will you yell at in the Olympics?
CB: You don't have to yell at superstars.
SI: Speaking of the Olympics, what did you think of Bill Laimbeer's threats of a lawsuit against the U.S. Olympic Committee because he didn't get a tryout?
CB: He wouldn't have got on that team.
SI: We heard a rumor that you like Laimbeer.
CB: Well, I like him. I enjoyed making a movie [Hot Shots] with him. I don't like some of the things he does on the court. I think he's literally tried to hurt people. I mean, I'm all for physical intimidation, but he does so much stuff on the court that's mean. You can grab somebody and stop them from making the shot without trying to put him through the floor.
SI: Back to the Olympics. It's ironic: The time you did try out for the team—1984—you didn't make it, and now, when you didn't try out, you made it.
CB: Well, in '84, I didn't really want to make it. I just wanted to move up in the draft.
SI: So why do you want to play in the Olympics now?
