Isiah Thomas posts his reaction to Dream Team doc, being left off team

Thursday June 14th, 2012

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.
