Audio has surfaced of Michael Jordan claiming he didn’t want to play with Isiah Thomas on the Dream Team.

There’s long been a rumor that the six-time NBA champion with the Chicago Bulls kept the legendary Detroit Pistons guard off of the 1992 Olympic squad. (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football)

Yet, Jordan denied this in “The Last Dance.”

However, some recently surfaced audio seems to tell a very different story. In an audio clip from The Dream Team Tapes, Jordan said he didn’t want to play with Isiah and Charles Barkley apparently felt the same way.

You can listen to it below.

Well, that sure is interesting! It looks like the audio making the rounds on Twitter certainly tells a very different story than the one told in “The Last Dance.”

I will say this though. Jordan never says in the audio that he got rid of Isiah. In fact, it almost sounds like that was Charles Barkley’s decision.

Still, it doesn’t seem to perfectly line up with Jordan’s version of events in “The Last Dance.”

Will we ever know the exact truth of why Thomas was kept off the gold medal squad? Probably not, but it’s crystal clear Jordan and him simply don’t like each other.

That can happen in the world of sports. Not everyone is going to get along!

As I’ve said many times now, you all need to watch “The Last Dance” if you haven’t already. It’s one of the greatest documentaries ever made, and I have no doubt you’ll love it!
