Isiah Thomas Wants An Apology From Michael Jordan For Calling Him An A**hole On TV
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.
Additionally to their beef, Zeke was not pleased with how his relationship with Jordan was portrayed in ‘The Last Dance’, three years ago, and has come after Jordan for it, time and time again.
Now, during an appearance of the ‘All the Smoke’ podcast, Isiah Thomas shed some additional light on their beef and revealed that he would sit down with Jordan to talk it out, while also demanding an apology from him for being called an a**hole.
“I got no problem sitting down, talking with anybody. I live with love, peace, truth, honesty, and courage, I stand on my square. I’m upright. I’d sit in any chair, and I’d talk to anybody. But some people, they ain’t telling the truth.
You got on national television and you called me an a**hole, and then you said you hated me. You said that on national television. Now, if you didn’t mean it, get on national television and apologize for it. Now, if you meant it, let it ride as it is.”
