The original (and some would say "only") Dream Team had every great player of its day on the roster…
… except for 1.
And for years, we heard the stories about Zeke being frozen out. I personally had never seen confirmation of this… until now.
also admits that he joined with Michael Jordan and other players in
blackballing Thomas from the 1992 Olympic Dream Team, saying, "Isiah
killed his own chances when it came to the Olympics. Nobody on that
team wanted to play with him. … Michael didn't want to play with him.
Scottie [Pippen] wanted no part of him. Bird wasn't pushing for him.
Karl Malone didn't want him. Who was saying, 'We need this guy?'
So Isiah's boy Magic sold him out. The article makes it clear that they'v had a falling out… but still. It's Magic telling the world that Zeke was such a huge douche, that the best players of that era wanted nothing to do with him.
