Who knew Isiah Thomas was such a classy guy? Last night, shortly after NBA TV aired the documentary on the 1992 Olympic "Dream Team" that everyone's been talking about, the former Pistons point guard jumped on Twitter and acknowledged that he spent much of yesterday fielding questions from people asking his opinion on the news that he'd been intentionally left off the Dream Team back in '92. At the same time, he also released an official statement on the 20th anniversary of the team.
A lot of buzz today and folks asking my take on the Dream Team anniversary. Here’s my take. ow.ly/i/H9nH— Isiah Thomas (@iamisiahthomas) June 14, 2012
"Today, like all Americans, I congratulate the Dream Team on their anniversary," he wrote. "I am proud of my career in the NBA and have fond memories of going head to head with all the members of the Team. I can't speak to the selection process as I wasn't involved. But 20 years later, their gold medal is still a momentous achievement."
Wow. We get on Isiah a lot for, well, everything. But, we won't do that here. He could have said a lot of negative things after the documentary aired—especially after seeing some of the guys on the team take shots at him. But, he didn't. Classy move.
