Michael Jordan and Isiah Thomas rehash their beef

In a recent interview with The Inquisitr, Michael Jordan gave some more insight into his long-lasting rivalry with Isiah Thomas. According to Jordan, their beef started following the 1985 NBA All-Star game when Jordan was allegedly "frozen out" by Thomas and his teammates.

"If you go back and look at the film, you can see that Isiah was actually doing that," Jordan said. "Once it started getting around that he was freezing me out, that’s when the ill feelings started to grow between us.

"That was my first All-Star game. I stayed in my room most of the time because I didn’t know what to do," Jordan added. "None of my teammates were there. I didn’t want to be out in a situation that I wasn’t comfortable with. The one time I did go out, I got on an elevator with Isiah Thomas to go downstairs for a league meeting. That was the first time I met him. And I said, 'Hello, how ya doin’?' That’s all I said. I was really intimidated because I didn’t know him and I didn’t want to get on his nerves. I didn’t want to seem like a rookie. You know, to just be so stupid. So I was quiet. I stayed in the corner. When I went down in the room for the meeting, I still didn’t say anything. After the weekend was over, it got back to me that I was arrogant and cocky and I wouldn’t even speak to Isiah on the elevator, that I gave him the cold shoulder. And I’m saying Isiah Thomas initiated it all."

Thomas did not take too kindly to Jordan's words, calling MJ a liar and giving his side of events.

It's pretty impressive how much these two hate each other almost 40 years after all that happened.
