Isiah Thomas Says Beef With ‘Asshole’ Michael Jordan ‘Will Go On For A Long Time’


Detroit Pistons legend Isiah Thomas experienced a ruthless competition against Michael Jordan and the Chicago Bulls during the late 1980s and 1990s, 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 recently, he once again doubled down on a previous statement of his by saying that LeBron James and Kareem-Abdul Jabbar are the greatest basketball players of all-time.

Now, the Detroit Pistons legend shared comments he made while speaking to the Greek Cosmote TV during the Abu Dhabi games. Zeke was not pleased with how his relationship with Jordan was portrayed in ‘The Last Dance’, two years ago.


“When I was watching The Last Dance, I’m sitting there and I’m watching it with my family and I’m thinking everything is good. And then this guy comes on television and he says that he hates me and then he calls me an asshole. And then I proceed to watch a whole documentary about him being an asshole. I’m like wait a minute, time out. Until I get a public apology, this beef is gonna go on for a long long time, ’cause I’m from the west side of Chicago.”
