Isiah Thomas admits he’s still ‘personally hurt’ he was not asked to be a part of that legendary ’92 Dream Team./n@ArashMarkazi
Thomas says he doesn’t know why he was not selected — but it’s obvious he believes it’s because he dissed Michael Jordan by not shaking his hand after that ’91 series.
Thomas — one of the best NBA players alive at the time — says his resume should have made him a lock for the Dream Team, which is why he thinks the non-selection had nothing to do with his talent.
“If I’m not apart of the Dream Team because a lapse in emotion in terms of not shaking someone’s hand … if that’s the reason why I didn’t make the Dream Team, then I am more disappointed today than I was back then when I wasn’t selected.”
Thomas — who had made the NBA All-Star team every year from ’82 to ’93 — explained,”The only thing that’s missing from my resume is not being on the Dream Team.”
The man’s got a point — Thomas was one of the best players in the league at the time … and had 2 NBA titles and was a 10-time All-Star at the time.
It’s something Thomas has stressed for years … he revealed in 2013 he felt disrespected by the Bulls, but would”absolutely” shake hands if he could do it all over again.
