'Bad Boys' Doc Causes Isaiah Thomas to Get Tweets about Isiah Thomas

Last night, the basketball community on Twitter were all talking one thing: ESPN's excellent 30 for 30 documentary on the "Bad Boys" Pistons (those 1980s squads starring Isiah Thomas, Joe Dumars, Bill Laimbeer, and Dennis Rodman, among others).

The Bad Boys were known for their physical, almost dirty play, and the leader of that movement was the smallest guy on that squad, the 5'11" Thomas.

It just so happens there's an NBA player named Isaiah Thomas today (different spelling of the first name though), and he got the above tweet from a fan.

The problem? Isaiah Thomas of the Kings isn't Bad Boy Isiah Thomas' son. They have no relation. Though the younger Thomas was indeed named after the Pistons star after the former's father lost a bet. Seriously.
