#2: Michael Jordan and the Dream Team 

This one has been talked about ad nauseum, so I’m not going to go too deeply into it, as I find Isiah Thomas’ ongoing beef with Jordan a bit ridiculous. 

But Jordan reportedly refused to play on the Dream Team if Thomas was involved, so the team caved to MJ and Thomas was denied the chance to represent the Pistons and the U.S. in the Olympics even though he was one of the top players in the league at the time and deserved to be there.

MJ has legit hate for those Bad Boys and I can’t blame him, as they were the only team to repeatedly beat him.
