  • When Rodman said "If Bird was black he would not be worshipped basically" Isiah Thomas shouldered that comment and basically deflected it to him. Without doing that Rookie Rodman could have been blackballed out the league, Isiah protected him. Without Rodman the Bulls dont have six championships. So he has Isiah to thank for that.

  • Real life David vs Goliath when you think of ISIAH lord Thomas career. Not to mention he won championships at Indiana university and High School.

  • Isaiah's energy changes COMPLETLEY when speaking on Chicago.Lip start quivering & whatnot Lol. Whenever u say "dude" in the middle of a debate its personal.

  • Thomas pretty much nudered Max with Pippen being the top 50 player all time and Zeke being by himself. Pippen played that game 7 with his "migraine" Bulls lost by 19 points, Pistons controlled the whole game. Jordan had 31- 8 - 8. Max is deceiving almost implying Pippen didn't play, and headaches are pretty common athletes play with them all the time lol.

  • If we did not lose Rick Mahorn to the expansion team Minnesota we would have won another championship. BAD BOYS

  • What they fail to realize is that the Pistons has to go through the Boston Celtics and the Los Angles Lakers. Which were considered two of the best teams and franchises. You cannot ignore that. They went through wars with both teams. Scottie hates Isaiah because Scottie is a second fiddle and Isaiah is a transcendent player who should have been on the dream team one.

  • I don't think Giannis could be Jordan, but he could def be Wilt + Shack, which could end up being better than Jordan, hard to say yet, like you need to dominate your opponent every single game and play hard every night at both ends of the court, that's very difficult to sustain, that's why Jordan is the GOAT.

  • To counter Thomas’s top 50 argument, Jordan played with 1 Hall of Fame player in Pippen. Thomas played with 2 Hall of Fame players in Dumars and Rodman.

  • Always been an Isiah fan, but if he wasn't so stuck on what he stuck on, his points would be more valid. Max says that the first time MJ played with an all star look what happened. But, then he goes straight to Pippen being an all time top 50. Come on Isiah, you had Vinny, Dumars, and should i go one. Too stuck in his feelings about them and the Bulls.
