The old beef between Michael Jordan and Isiah Thomas is still alive and well thanks to the “Last Dance”

By Eurohoops team/

While talking during the Abhi Dabi NBA games to the Greek NBA rights holder COSMOTE TV, Isiah Thomas dropped a bomb during his interview.

When asked about his old dispute with Michael Jordan and the way it was portrayed in the “Last Dance” documentary, Thomas didn’t hold back.

As he said: “When I was watching the “last dance”, I’m seating 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”.

Thomas and the Pistons were beating regularly – and sometimes literally – the Chicago Bulls, not letting Jordan reach the NBA finals during the 80s. Of course, Chicago and Jordan finally managed to prevail, however, it’s no secret that there’s no love lost between the two sides.
