In light of NBATV's The Dream Team documentary that debuted on Wednesday night, former Detroit Pistons star Isiah Thomas -- who famously was left off the 1992 Olympic team, with many pointing to his icy relationship with Michael Jordan as the reason -- tweets that he was inundated with requests for his reaction.

The tweet links to this statement:

Today, like all Americans, I congratulate the Dream Team on their anniversary. I am proud of my career in the NBA and have fond memories of going head to head with all the members of the Team. I can't speak to the selection process as I wasn't involved. But 20 years later, their gold medal is still a momentous achievement.
