Isiah Thomas Rumors
Back in the dark ages, Jackie Mac, who played hoops at the University of New Hampshire, earned her stripes one day at the Boston Garden when the Pistons were in town. “We were waiting for the Pistons to come in for a practice,” she said. “And we were goofing around shooting the ball. I took a turnaround jump shot in my street clothes and all of a sudden I heard Isiah Thomas say, ‘Do that again.’ I said, ‘How much will you give me?’ He said, ’10 bucks,’ so I drilled another.” Credibility established. “After that,” she said, “I could go to the Pistons locker room for almost anything.”
Isaiah Thomas: [Hall of Famer] Isiah Thomas called me that day and said, ‘You guys are a game and a half out of the eighth spot. Take this team to the playoffs.’ That’s when it started changing a little bit to me. ‘Maybe I can see the playoffs for the first time in my career.’
The Detroit Pistons announced today that Pistons’ legend Isiah Thomas will make an appearance at The Palace as part of the club’s “Best of Seven” series when the team hosts the long-time rival Los Angeles Lakers for the final time at The Palace on Wednesday, February 8 at 7:30 p.m. Thomas will be on hand for the game to share his favorite Palace memories during a special halftime ceremony and the first 10,000 fans will receive a commemorative Isiah Thomas mini jersey.
