Isiah Thomas Open To Sitting Down With Michael Jordan To End Decade Long Beef


Detroit Pistons legend Isiah Thomas experienced a ruthless competition against Michael Jordan and the Chicago Bulls during the late 1980s and 1990, when the Pistons eliminated the Bulls from the playoffs for three straight years (1988, 1989, and 1990). The Bad Boys Pistons were an obstacle that Jordan couldn’t clear at first. The heated matchups between Isiah and Jordan eventually formed a bitter atmosphere between the two, that still lasts today.

Their rivalry peaked when the Bulls finally got the upper hand in the 1991 Eastern Conference Finals and Isiah Thomas and his teammates left the court before time expired, without a handshake or any congratulating gesture.

A year later, Jordan then helped Magic Johnson and other teammates to keep Isiah Thomas off the 1992 Dream Team, after Thomas had feuds with many players.

Ever since back then, Thomas has been collecting numerous salty statements towards Jordan, and has recently been backing many players not named Michael Jordan as the greatest player of all time, with Kareem Abdul-Jabbar and LeBron James among them.

During a recent appearance on Heavy live with Brandon “Scoop B” Robinson, the two-time champion now revealed that he’s open to sitting down with Michael Jordan to squashing their beef, and end the animosity.


“I’m not afraid of anybody. I’ll sit down and speak with anyone. Anyone who’s been around me. I’m not one who walks around with fear.”
