Isiah Thomas Responds To Michael Jordan
Isiah Thomas responded to Michael Jordan’s commentary on an ESPN documentary recently.
During episode four of ESPN’s The Last Dance, Jordan has some not-so-nice things to say about Thomas.
“You can show me anything you want. It’s no way you can convince me he wasn’t an assh–e,” he said.

Thomas responded to Jordan on Monday during an episode of ESPN’s Get Up.
“In terms of how we felt at that particular time as champions, we were coming down, Michael Jordan was coming up,” he said.
“And in coming up, you have certain emotions. And in coming down as champions, you have certain emotions. And I’ve said this a many of times: Looking back over the years, had we had the opportunity to do it all over again, I think all of us would make a different decision.
“Now, me, myself, personally, I paid a heavy price for that decision. And in paying that price, you know, I understand that this is the sports world and everything else, but at the same time looking back over in terms of how we felt at that particular time, our emotional state and how we exited the floor, we actually gave the world the opportunity to look at us in a way that we never really tried to position ourselves in or project ourselves in that way.
“So it’s unfortunate that it happened, but that’s just how it was during that period of time.”
It will be interesting to see what other tales the documentary ultimately reveals.
