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.”

I don't really like Isiah Thomas. When news went out that Magic had HIV, Isiah went around spreading rumors that Magic was gay - worst part of that was that Isiah and Magic were best friends at the time. Isiah and Magic's wives were best friends too and they were almost like one big family the way they would come in and out of each others houses, sleep over and what not. Magic expected Isiah to have his back about the rumors, so it really hurt Magic when he found out Isiah was like the main guy spreading the rumors. This was a big part of why Jordan hated Isiah too, Jordan practically said that if Isiah plays for the Dream Team then Jordan wouldn't and there were no arguments whatsoever from management or the team members.

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.

I must say, the guy I hated the most on the Pistons was Bill Lambier. What an ass.

I think it just shows how great that team was when they left off a guy like him and STILL did what they did.
