#10. "Bad Hands, Big Mouth"

Goat: Isiah Thomas
Game: Game 5 & 7, 1987 Eastern Conference Finals
Date: 5/26 & 5/30/1997

After literally throwing away the victory in Game 5 (to be fair, he'd just hit a tough shot to put them up by 1), and eventually losing in 7 games to the Celtics, Thomas said "If Larry Bird were black, he'd be just another good guy." If Larry Bird were black, he still would've seen that pass coming from a mile away, Zeke.
