It is interesting to hear 20 years later why Isiah Thomas was left off the Dream Team. Thomas was part of the Bad Boy Detroit Pistons and in 1991 when the Chicago Bulls finally beat them for a chance to go to the finals Thomas lead his troops off the court before the final buzzer. It was a classless act that caused Thomas to miss the chance to be in the Olympics. Michael Jordan joined the team, but only if Thomas was not part of the team. So what’s the moral of the story? think befor you act. Don’t allow your emotions to control you. Because Thomas did not heed this advise and now he can only say I wish I had stuck around for the final buzzer 20 years ago, but hindsight is 20/20 and you can’t change the past.
