Isiah Thomas still bitter about Karl Malone’s cheap-shot elbow


Isiah Thomas on Karl Malone elbowing him in the face, via Terry Foster of The Detroit News:

"“I think it was the dirtiest play I have experienced in the game of basketball in my life,” Thomas said of the play, which happened on a Pistons pick-and-roll with Malone rotating to cover the middle. “I don’t think I’ve seen anything as vicious and as intentional to a player. I still don’t understand it.”"

"“It was horrific,” Thomas said. “That was the cheapest (bleep) in my mind in the history of the game.”"
