“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.”
Classy move by Thomas. In all honesty here, debates aside, my hunch is that the marketing around the documentary saw the Thomas exclusion simply as an opportunity to generate buzz about the movie, and it certainly worked. Get Jordan and Pippen to take a few shots at their old rival, and suddenly, interested in your movie is going to be ratcheted up. Glad to see Thomas staying above the fray.
