Colin Cowherd: “You interviewed Isiah Thomas recently, and he’s taken a beating on the Jordan documentary. How does it all land for him?”
Chris Broussard: “I think Isiah Thomas was STUNNED by the name Michael Jordan called him on the documentary, the expletive, and that Jordan was still upset. I talked to Isiah a few days before parts 3 and 4 of the documentary came out and he said ‘look, every time I’ve had an interaction with Michael Jordan over the last several years it’s been cordial. There has been no tension and he hasn’t given me any indication that he doesn’t like me.’ He said they’ve ever been at dinners together and there’s been no problem. I think he was surprised that Jordan called him the name that he did.” (Full Segment Above)
Listen to Chris Broussard join The Herd with Colin Cowherd to discuss Isiah Thomas’ role in episodes 3 and 4 of ESPN’s ‘The Last Dance’ documentary, as Isiah told Chris that he’s ‘stunned’ over some of the segments where Jordan was still visibly bitter towards Isiah regarding the 1991 Eastern Conference Finals.
When asked about Isiah's excuse on the Pistons just following with what the Celtics did to Detroit in not shaking hands after losing a series, Jordan said of Zeke:
"You can show me anything you want. There's no way you're not going to convince me he wasn't an a**hole."
Thomas’ ‘Bad Boy’ Pistons, of course, walked off on the Bulls after getting swept and refused to shake hands as Jordan’s Bulls headed to their first NBA Finals. Isiah says he was surprised by Jordan’s bitter admissions, and says he’s had a cordial relationship with Jordan for years, and didn’t know a beef still existed.
