Default MJ's freeze out during his 1st AS Game

Reportedly Isiah Thomas and 'some others' were jealous/mad because Jordan got so much hype and attention during his rookie season, they 'froze' him out during the All Star game in his rookie season.

Anyt truth to this, and who were the other players 'freezing' him out?

I think this was the roster:


Moses Malone, Larry Bird, Isiah Thomas, Julius Erving, Bernard King, Sidney Moncrief, Michael Jordan, Terry Cummings, Michael Ray Richardson, Dennis Johnson, Bill Laimbeer, Robert Parish

Not passing him the ball, involving him in the game, etc.

I'm sure if one of us could just see even 5 minutes of the game, it will become 100% obvious whether it was an intentional freeze out or not. It'd be kinda hard to miss that kind of thing.

I think I remember hearing something that they were mad at him for showing up in a bunch of sponsored clothing or something. Maybe felt like it was disrespectful. Supposedly Jordan just thought he was being kind to the people paying him big bucks.

I don't know the whole story, but I've heard that was part of it. Like, some sort of disrespect to the team/history of basketball thing or something..?

What I heard was them just being stuck up with Jordan's hype. He was selected to start in the AS Game as a rookie.

People seem to have a problem with that. But it's always the fans at the time that hate it. In the future, a new generation of fans will be scoffing at the same thing. Yet, when they were young, they loved the very same thing.

That is correct. I'ts in one his autobiographies, For The Love Of The Game. Don't have the book here, but will double check when I get home. I'm fairly sure, though.
