The Bad Boys are still trying to stay relevant. In case you didn’t see The Last Dance, Michael Jordan used his interviews on the Bulls documentary to reignite a decades-old feud with Isiah Thomas dating back to their playoff battles in the late 1980s and early ’90s.
According to Thomas, Jordan’s hatred of him was news to him until the documentary aired:
Michael Jordan on the Pistons: "I hated them. And the hate carries to this day.”

Thomas spoke this week on a podcast with Shannon Sharpe. He told Sharpe that he watched “The Last Dance” with “great disappointment” and talked about his surprise when hearing Jordan’s feelings.
“Even until I watched ‘The Last Dance,’ I didn’t realize that he felt the way he felt the way about me,” Thomas said. “I never had no bad words with him or anything like that. We played. His team won, my team won. We went home, they went home.”

Isiah Thomas is a master of talking crap. He’s still the same old weasel he was during his playing days. He was one amazing player, but he thinks much higher of himself than he really should.
He’s a hard guy to like.
