Isiah Thomas, who was ousted by Michael Jordan from the Dream Team, reveals Hir Airness is a great ‘a**hole’

Michael Jordan and Isiah Thomas

Former NBA player Isiah Thomas still seems bitter about Chicago Bulls legend Michael Jordan. The beef between the two started way back in the 80s, and for some reason, it is still going on. Isiah has been clear about his feelings towards Michael whenever he was asked about the same.

Isiah Thomas talked about the same on his recent appearance on ‘The Pivot Podcast,’ where he quoted,Here’s why I was upset of watching a documentary of a guy being an a*****e to everybody, but then call me an a*****e, and I have been nothing but nice to this guy. That is real talk.”  Isiah then talked more about his timeline with Michael Jordan. Apparently, Michael humiliated Isiah in his documentary film ‘The Last Dance.’

Even before this, their rivalry began when they took the court against each other for Chicago Bulls and Detroit Pistons, respectively. Back then, Jordan’s grudge toward Thomas has grown even more prominent. ‘His Airness’ expressed how much he hated Thomas when the 1992 ‘Dream Team’ was formed. Unfortunately, Thomas was left out of that team, even after being the second-best point guard behind Los Angeles Lakers legend Magic Johnson. He even blamed Michael for being the reason he was not selected for the team.

The Detroit Pistons selected Isiah Thomas as the second overall pick in the 1981 NBA draft. They signed him for a four-year, $1.6 million contract. Thomas started for the Eastern Conference in the 1982 NBA All-Star Game and made it to the rookie team. Thomas made his debut against the New York Knicks and ended up scoring 16 points in 94 seconds to force the game into overtime, but then eventually was fouled out, and the Knicks were declared the winners.

In 1988, the Pistons defeated the Boston Celtics in the Eastern Conference Finals. They advanced to their first NBA Finals in 32 years, where they took on a formidable Los Angeles Lakers star-studded by Magic Johnson, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, etc. After taking a 3–2 series lead back to Los Angeles, Detroit appeared poised to win their first NBA title in Game 6. However, the Lakers piped the Pistons to clinch their second title. In 1993, Detroit won 40 games, missing the playoffs for the first time since the 1982–1983 season. In the following season, an aging Thomas tore his Achilles tendon, forcing him to retire sooner.
