It looks like this beef will never end.
Isiah Thomas recently sat down with the Greek NBA rights holder Cosmote during its broadcast of the Abu Dhabi Games 2022.
When asked about his old dispute with Michael Jordan and the way it was portrayed in the “Last Dance” documentary, Isiah Thomas didn’t hold back as he boldly stated:
“When I was watching the Last Dance, I’m sitting there and I’m watching it with my family and I’m thinking everything is good,” Thomas shared. “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.”
This is just one of several times that Thomas has spoke out on Jordan, with the Chicago Bulls great never returning fire except for the documentary.
Back in July, Inquisitr published an article highlighting the origin of the MJ/Thomas feud, but Isiah subsequently took to Twitter to respond to the article, rejecting Jordan’s comments about the origin of their beef.
“Stop lying this story is not factual or accurate, tell the truth man,” Isiah wrote. “Dr. J, Moses Malone, Larry Bird, Sidney Moncrief and I did not freeze you out. If memory serves me correct I was injured most of the second half and Bird had a broken nose. Magic and Sampson dominated the game.”
In the 1980s, the two stars led their teams in some heated playoff battles. For the most part, Isiah got the better of Jordan. They met in the Eastern Conference Finals three consecutive years, with the Pistons winning the first two until Chicago finally broke through in 1991.
In 1991, Jordan’s Bulls swept the Pistons and Thomas led a team walk-off before the final buzzer.
The Bulls went on to win six titles in eight seasons from 1991 to ’98.
