Isiah Thomas Rumors
Doncic, who had tied his career high with 42 points last Saturday in a high-scoring showdown with Steph Curry, became the fourth player with 45 points and 10 assists in a game at age 21 or younger, joining Trae Young, Isiah Thomas and Michael Jordan, according to Elias. “Luka went on a run where he hit four or five, like, tough, contested 3-pointers,” Williamson said. “There’s not really a defensive scheme you can do for that. That’s a great player hitting tough shots.”
Isiah Thomas has invested $3 million into hemp and cannabis ingredient producer One World Pharma Inc. (OTCQB:OWPC). Thomas, the former Detroit Pistons player-turned-entrepreneur, was named CEO of One World Pharma last June. One World secured the funds through Thomas’ holding company, Isiah International, which will complete the new funding round in six $500.000 monthly tranches over the next six months.
In his 2004 book, Embry describes himself hearing a slightly different story in a different setting, with Laimbeer as narrator and Embry himself as old-but-intimidating comeback-deliverer: In a different conversation with Laimbeer, he told me that after every game in the [Richfield] Coliseum, as a sign of unity, each of the Pistons would spit on my car, which they passed en route to their bus. He stepped away from me as he told the story, not quite sure how I would react, and he seemed genuinely surprised when I said, “Good for them. It probably needed to be washed anyway.” Embry also says his wife, Terri, was particularly displeased about the spitting because it was all on the passenger side. Whichever version of this story you prefer, it sure sounds like 1989 Pistons — all of them — spat on a car together.
In an appearance on the latest episode of Shannon Sharpe’s podcast “Club Shay Shay,” Thomas ranked the five toughest players that he played against during his career. He ranked Jordan at No. 5, behind Magic Johnson, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Larry Bird and Julius Erving. But it wasn’t just the ranking that can be seen as shade. Thomas added that he believed he was “dominant” against MJ. “Just head-to-head, I was dominant over him,” Thomas told Sharpe. “Until ’91, when I basically had career-ending wrist surgery, up until then, my record against him and his team—it really wasn’t competition there.”
“He just wasn’t my competition,” Thomas recalled explained. “My focus was Bird, Magic, Dr. J [Julius Erving], Kareem Abdul-Jabbar. Those were the guys. I don’t care what anybody says. You can go back and look at history — those were the guys.”
