Isiah Thomas, the Detroit Pistons great, and Michael Jordan, the Chicago Bulls standout, do not appear to have reconciled. Thomas is upset with how Jordan discussed him on the television show The Last Dance, which dramatized the Bulls’ final championship season with Jordan.

“Until he apologizes on international television, there will be no conversation,” Thomas told The Volume. Thomas objected to the language Jordan used to disparage him as a human.

It’s difficult to watch two absolute NBA basketball icons clash like this. Jordan and Thomas were among the greatest players of all time. Thomas played for the Pistons from 1981 to 1994. He won two NBA titles while with the Pistons. He went on to coach in the NBA, including serving as the East coach in the 2003 All-Star Game.

That was also Jordan’s final All-Star game as a Washington Wizard. Thomas stated he encouraged Vince Carter to give up his starting role on that team to Jordan, and he doesn’t understand why Jordan would badmouth him.

Jordan, of course, had probably the best NBA career of any player. He won six NBA titles with the Bulls, one gold medal with the 1992 Olympic basketball “Dream Team,” and six NBA Finals MVP awards. He also won the NBA Most Valuable Player Award five times over his illustrious professional career. He retired from the league twice during his career before returning to play for the Bulls and subsequently the Wizards.

There looks to be wounded emotions between these two men, and NBA fans everywhere are curious as to what happens next.
