Detroit Pistons legend Isiah Thomas was recently a guest on Heavy live with Brandon “Scoop B” Robinson and the two-time NBA champion said he’s open to sitting down with Chicago Bulls icon Michael Jordan and squashing their beef.
Thomas admitted to Robinson that he didn’t know Jordan hated him until he watched “The Last Dance” docuseries.
Michael Jordan and the Bulls and a fierce rivalry with Isiah Thomas and the Pistons in the late ’80s and early ’90s. When MJ and Chicago finally got past Zeke and Detroit in the 1991 Eastern Conference Finals, Thomas and the Pistons didn’t shake the hands of members of the Bulls as they walked off the court.
Ever since that moment, Jordan has hated Thomas, further escalated by the 1992 Dream Team snub.
With the Bulls, Jordan won six NBA championships in the ’90s and all six Finals MVP awards. He’s universally recognized as the greatest player in NBA history, though Thomas has Kareem Abdul-Jabbar and LeBron James over MJ in his GOAT rankings.
NBA fans would pay good money to see Thomas and Jordan sit down for a conversation. However, the odds of that happening are very low, as MJ doesn’t seem like the type of guy who is interested in having a relationship with Thomas after everything the two went through back in the day.
Jordan was inducted into the Hall of Fame in 2009, while Thomas was enshrined in 2000.
