Isiah Thomas wants Michael Jordan to apologise to end their longtime quarrel

Two of the greatest Eastern Conference teams in NBA history included Thomas and Jordan as members.

Isiah Thomas and Michael Jordan continue to have a fierce rivalry even now.

The documentary “The Last Dance” about the Chicago Bulls featured the tale of the legendary matchups between the Pistons and Bulls. Thomas didn’t like how the Pistons he was portrayed. Thomas was questioned about his rivalry with Jordan while speaking to the Greek NBA rights holder Cosmote TV during the NBA games in Abu Dhabi. The Hall of Fame guard was unreserved in his assessment of the film: “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. And then this guy comes on television and he says that he hates me and then he calls me an as*hole. And then I proceed to watch a whole documentary about him being an a**hole.”

Isiah Thomas of the Detroit Pistons and the legendary Michael Jordan of the Chicago Bulls have a strong bond. Two of the greatest Eastern Conference teams in NBA history included Thomas and Jordan as members. Thomas and the Pistons played the Bulls several times during the NBA playoffs. They were aware that Michael Jordan’s Bulls team was a rising one. Despite this, they kept preventing them from progressing further in the playoffs.

In the end, Jordan and the Bulls prevailed, defeating the Pistons in the Eastern Conference Finals of 1991. The Bulls then finished the job by defeating the LA Lakers to win the 1990s’ first championship.

In total, Michael Jordan and the Chicago Bulls won six of the following eight titles, establishing them as one of the greatest dynasties in NBA history. Near the end of the 1991 series versus the Pistons, one of the situation’s most important developments arose. Thomas and the majority of his teammates departed the field early in the game’s closing seconds. The fact that none of the Pistons shook hands with the Bulls would cause a rift. Jordan made it clear throughout the documentary that he didn’t agree with that.
