As of late on the “Point Forward” webcast with Andre Iguodala and Evan Turner, Thomas discussed the hour of the last part of the 80s. “So we in Chicago and Chicago has just traded Oakley because he wasn’t physical enough. They traded [Charles] Oakley for [Bill] Cartwright. Jordan needed more protection, so they brought Cartwright in and you know he had this, you know, they said he swung his arms.”

Isiah discussed the episode that followed when they played in Chicago. He told how Cartwright designated him since he was little. As per Thomas, Cartwright went after him, and this was their arrangement. He said that it was intriguing the way in which no one went towards the huge folks of the Pistons. Isiah referenced how he had experienced childhood with the west side of Chicago and facing the enormous folks was not a problem to him.

Isiah likewise discussed how they were named the risky side, however, as per the Pistons, it was only a psychological level thing.

“We came in wanting you to think about fighting and wanting you to think about being physical. Now that you are thinking that way, we gonna play basketball. And every time you get a little hit you ready to fight. But think about it right, how many fights did you see Dennis Rodman have?”

“But we had the reputation of fighting and throwing, but we was hitting back. Lambeer finally stood up and hit Robert Parish back. The narrative and the way they describe all fights is so you what you seeing is not what they telling they not telling you that dude hit him and he is hitting him back,” he continued.
