    Isiah will never let this go because remember, he is from Chicago and Jordan basically snatched the title of the city's favorite son from him. It hurt and still hurts from a professional and personal level. Those boos must've hurt him bad.

    When I was younger, I hated how the old school ballers would hate on each other but now after seeing how soft the game is now, I appreciate seeing the pettiness from old legends more. I feel its competitive and the fact that these men still hate each other thirty years later brings tears of joy.

    First off have you checked giannis career stats...he doesnt even average 20 pts a game...he has got one mvp trophy as his entire playoff success whatsoever and max talking about him being the goat...first do 10 percent of what mj did before getting such praise

  14. Yehuda Shabtai

    Isiah sitting up there basically saying he is good as mj because they won 3 of 4 series against the bulls...forgetting the fact was the best player by far each and every time...once mj got a little more help isiah got swept....Detroit had way more better players surrounding thomas....pippen was soft in all those series offering virtually no help to mj while he was getting the mj rules treatment...

    Zeke only 2 years older than Jordan but when Jordan and the Bulls beat the Pistons in the playoffs he basically retired the Pistons. The Pistons were never a threat after that.

    Exactly!!! Isaiah said what I say all the time. The bad boy pistons had no scorers like that. Just Isaiah. Not dumars not rodman not laimbeer were scoring threats. And this is where people's minds should work quickly. Umm max you said once jordan got pippen he beat the pistons? Ummmm what superstar teammate does greek freal have? None. Middleton is good but not a super star.

    Just a general comment, not necessarily about this vid, but since they were talking about Giannis as potentially the best ever (someday) based upon his numbers. First of all, this is a bad era. The rules have inflated many of the numbers and although there is great talent in the league, there is also some embarrasingly bad playing going on. If we are just looking at numbers, people like Wilt would always, by everyone, be considered the best ever. But players in todays era, I predict, will always have an imaginary asterick by their name in future generations as playing in a weak era. The NBA needs to fix some things fast.

    Love how he throws his entire team under the bus. I remember Joe Dumars winning a finals MVP on the same team Thomas played on so he must have been good enough for something.

    Detroit had to get through Boston. Chicago had to get through Detroit. Isiah won at all levels - Prep, NCAA & NBA. Zeke is a Top 10 HOF. Pippen probably could not crack most "real" NBA fans top 25; but he is a top 50. Think about it!

    Pistons drafted PATRICK EWING 1st round. BEST NCAA center at that time. ON the #1 GEORGETOWN squad. Pippen came from CENTRAL ARKANSAS. Pipen was FAR from being an allstar when he came in.
