Michael Jordan in 2011 said that he wouldn’t have played on the Dream Team with Isiah Thomas

An old tape denies Jordan recollection of the episode seen in The Last Dance.

An old audio of Michael Jordan emerged in which he says he told NBA executive Rod Thorn, who was part of the USA Basketball selection committee, that he wouldn’t play on the Dream Team in 1992 if Detroit Pistons star Isiah Thomas was also selected.

“Rod Thorn called me, and I said, ‘Rod, I won’t play if Isiah Thomas is on the team,'” Jordan is heard telling reporter Jack McCallum in a 2011 interview, which was aired on his podcast ‘The Dream Team Tapes’.

During episode 5 of The Last Dance, Jordan said he didn’t have anything to do with Thomas not making the Dream Team.
