For years now, there have been rumors flying around indicating that Isiah Thomas was not a part of the 1992 Olympic "Dream Team" because of a beef that he had with Michael Jordan. But, until now, those rumors were only, well, rumors. MJ had never really confirmed or denied them. But, in a new "Dream Team" documentary that's set to air tonight on NBA TV to help celebrate the 20th anniversary of the team being put together, His Airness finally admits what everyone has thought for years—that he helped blackball Isiah from the team back in '92.
"That was one of the stipulations put to me…that Isiah wasn't part of the team," Jordan says in the documentary.
Scottie Pippen also makes an appearance in the documentary—along with the rest of the "Dream Team"—and agrees with MJ's sentiment. "Isiah was the general [of the Pistons]," he says. "He was the guy who would yap at his teammates and say, 'Kick them on their ass. Do whatever you have to do.' No, I didn't want him on the Dream Team."
Go set your DVR right now. This doc is definitely must-see TV.
