Default Re: An Isiah Thomas Question

Um Isiah Thomas is one of the Greatest Point Guards of All Time…

He was a leader on and off the court and was the driving force for the Pistons through out his time here. He had great desire and heart to win… Watch the 1988 NBA Finals Game 6 3rd quarter to see an example of heart…

As for where he stands here in Detroit… as a player he is held in high regard among other Detroit greats such as Berry Sanders, Gordie Howe, Kirk Gibson, Al Kaline, Joe Louis, and Steve Yzerman.

As an executive however, he had tarnished his image in a dispute with Bill Davidson. He could have been an exec with the Pistons, but burnt bridges with the old man and thusly bolted to Toronto. In hindsight, it was for the best…
