Isiah Thomas was never a fan of Michael Jordan, and he made sure everyone who knew or spoke to him knew about it. Both rivals played each other in matches full of competitiveness, tight arches, aggressiveness, intensity and lots of trash talk. Like any other rivalry, theirs was filled with heat, bad blood and, to a certain extent, hatred. The rivalry was such that even now, when they are together at a social gathering, they don’t want to come face to face!

The story of Michael Jordan and Isiah Thomas will go on for years, a story of rivalry, a story of hate, a story of bad blood. Although both players had different playing styles, Thomas was a selfless goalscorer who helped his team win back-to-back championships while Jordan was a dominating player who, along with some assistance from Scottie Pippen, managed to pull off two three-pointers in a singles debate . One thing was certain between the two teams of players, a game between the Bad Boys Detroit Pistons and the Chicago Bulls was never a dull moment and there was always a touch of excitement.

Led by Jordan and Thomas, these teams were so good they made the game look like a breeze and absolutely dominated the league in their day. While Isiah Thomas made sure his team played well and contributed to the wins with his creativity, movement and passing, Jordan was absolutely dominant and both produced great results! And this led to the start of the rivalry between the two, which has been going on since the 80’s and has recently been revived after some comments from Thomas about Jordan.

Let’s take a closer look at this sequence where Isiah Thomas slammed Michael Jordan for pretending to be awesome and explained that the story being told of Jordan’s greatness was actually his and he was the true recipient of that praise .

On the podcast “Point Forward” with Andre Iguodala and Evan Turner, Isiah Thomas broke out about Michael Jordan when he visited their rivalry and spoke about how Jordan would be nothing without the story he stole from Thomas. He seemed particularly pissed off at Jordan’s Netflix docu-series The Last Dance, which was based on Jordan’s life and struggles in the league he dominated, and that was something that hit Thomas hard and didn’t really enjoy him at all, as he felt his story was being told, not Jordan’s.

Thomas started and said: “So this whole narrative about ‘Jordan’ went through [Larry] Bird, he went through Magic [Johnson]he went through Kareem [Abdul-Jabbar].’ Nooooo. time out This is my story! This is not Jordan’s story‘ and then it followed with, “Jordan didn’t go through Magic, Kareem, Bird if I remember correctly. Jordan hit, he hit us [the Bad Boys Detroit Pistons] ’91 at the end, and then he hit [Charles] Barkley, Shawn Kemp, Karl Malone, Patrick Ewing. Those were the people he hit. He didn’t beat Magic, Bird, and Kareem. But you’ve all been sold this story, ‘Oh, he came down in the ’80s.’ No no no no no.”

The relationship between the two players doesn’t seem to have healed and still remains salty, as seen even in NBA 75th Anniversary team celebration where both did not face each other or speak to each other, although they were physically close.

The facts given by Thomas don’t sit very well with people around the world as Jordan played against Magic Johonson and Kareem Abdul-Jabbar and beat them several times and even if Jordan didn’t win against Larry Bird he made it in to perform commendably in these games and put up a hard fight against them.
