Isaiah pistons was the deterrent for the bulls for a few years no doubt. They lost to them in the playoffs numerous times. HOWEVER once the bulls became the champion bulls however that happened they were unstoppable and prob the greatest team ever (and I hate saying team) because it’s not exactly a team effort like Magic’s lakers and Birds Celtics which for sure are some of the best teams in history. But if you were there at the time watching you remember. MJ and Scottie were unstoppable and they had some help from others as well.

The Bulls ended up with 6.

Zeke is right. the Pistons do in fact lead against the Bulls in their playoff rivalry during the MJ-Zeke era 3-1 in playoff series, and 12-10 games. although I must say, 3 of those series were tough for the Pistons to win that they have to employ the "Jordan rules" just to contain Jordan. 2 of those series could have cost the Pistons their 2 championships if not for that strategy. when that strategy didn't work anymore, Zeke and the Pistons just gave up and quit on them in '91, hence the infamous walk-off in the game. it was embarrassing and pretty much made the whole Pistons retire. Zeke knew they were done and their time was over. they couldn't win against Jordan at the top of his game.

Raptors are second in the east without Leonard so he definetly didnt stop giannis alone.

How many rings Isaiah got how many mj in Scotty got Isaiah said it his self he only 2 years older then Jordan the piston jus could no longer play wit bulls

What did people think Isiah was going to say? I really don't care. Yes, facts are facts. We all know the number of wins and losses by both sides. Indisputable. So are the number of championships. He can say whatever, he is actually absolutely right...the facts really ARE the facts...
Telly's Honest Reviews
he's right as far as the numbers go, but the fact remains as well as far as why Zeke didn't like Jordan so much is aside from the attention and popularity that Jordan is getting, is because Jordan made Zeke and his Pistons quit and has beens. they got swept.

Max kellerman knows nothing about basketball. Isaiah Thomas is one of the greatest players of all time has won championships at the college and professional level and somehow Max Kellerman thinks he qualified to have a discussion with the greats. These players need to stop validating these personalities by engaging them

Stephen Corbitt
When Rodman said "If Bird was black he would not be worshipped basically" Isiah Thomas shouldered that comment and basically deflected it to him. Without doing that Rookie Rodman could have been blackballed out the league, Isiah protected him. Without Rodman the Bulls dont have six championships. So he has Isiah to thank for that.

and without Jordan, Zeke could have 3-peated.

Real life David vs Goliath when you think of ISIAH lord Thomas career. Not to mention he won championships at Indiana university and High School.

Thomas pretty much nudered Max with Pippen being the top 50 player all time and Zeke being by himself. Pippen played that game 7 with his "migraine" Bulls lost by 19 points, Pistons controlled the whole game. Jordan had 31- 8 - 8. Max is deceiving almost implying Pippen didn't play, and headaches are pretty common athletes play with them all the time lol.

What they fail to realize is that the Pistons has to go through the Boston Celtics and the Los Angles Lakers. Which were considered two of the best teams and franchises. You cannot ignore that. They went through wars with both teams. Scottie hates Isaiah because Scottie is a second fiddle and Isaiah is a transcendent player who should have been on the dream team one.

This is a big insult to the raptors and to nicks game plan. Kawhi was valuable in defending giannis but no more than gasol or serge

I don't think Giannis could be Jordan, but he could def be Wilt + Shack, which could end up being better than Jordan, hard to say yet, like you need to dominate your opponent every single game and play hard every night at both ends of the court, that's very difficult to sustain, that's why Jordan is the GOAT.

To counter Thomas’s top 50 argument, Jordan played with 1 Hall of Fame player in Pippen. Thomas played with 2 Hall of Fame players in Dumars and Rodman.

Always been an Isiah fan, but if he wasn't so stuck on what he stuck on, his points would be more valid. Max says that the first time MJ played with an all star look what happened. But, then he goes straight to Pippen being an all time top 50. Come on Isiah, you had Vinny, Dumars, and should i go one. Too stuck in his feelings about them and the Bulls.
