I hope you watched the NBA TV Dream Team documentary on Wednesday night, because it’s good storytelling. A fantastic reminder of how great those players were and how that moment changed basketball.
One of the more interesting part of it was Michael Jordan and Scottie Pippen saying they didn’t want Isiah Thomas on the team. There was no argument from people up the ladder who seemed to have issues with Thomas. If it were purely about his game, Thomas would have been on the team — he is one of the best point guards to ever play the game. But he burned a lot of bridges, which if you watched his career after playing it’s not that hard to believe.
Wednesday night, Thomas released a statement taking the high road.
“Today, like all Americans, I congratulate the Dream Team on their anniversary. I am proud of my career in the NBA and have fond memories of going head-to-head with all the members of the team. I can’t speak to the selection process as I wasn’t involved. But 20 years later, their gold medal is still a momentous achievement.”

Another thing about Isiah that really pissed me off was when Dennis Rodman was going to come out of retirement to sign with the Knicks, and then Isiah blocked it from happening and said the reason was how Dennis Rodman spoke on 'The View' about how cool he was with gay ppl. Surprisingly Dennis Rodman didn't hate on Isiah for that even though Rodman was really excited about playing again, because if I was Rodman I wouldn't be even half as chill about it.

He was. He was the ring leader of the Bad Boy Pistons. Him and Lambierr.
I never got to watch Isiah Thomas, but he sounds like a shit starter.
