Shaquille O'Neal Proposes Face-To-Face Show Featuring Michael Jordan And Isiah Thomas: “I’m Gonna Try To Get That Produced. A Conversation Between Michael And Isiah.“

Michael Jordan and Isiah Thomas were fierce rivals during their active days, and even after their careers ended, the bad blood continues. MJ was a dangerous rival for Thomas and his Detroit Pistons, threatening to end their reign in the Eastern Conference during the late 80s. 

The 'Bad Boys' even created the infamous 'Jordan Rules' to try to stop His Airness, playing very a physical game against the GOAT. It wasn't until 1991 that he could get past the Pistons and became an NBA champion, starting a new era in the NBA. 

It's not a secret that Jordan doesn't enjoy hearing Thomas' name, and some said he was the reason why Zeke wasn't selected for the 1992 Dream Team. In recent years, the cold war between these two has reached new levels. Jordan stated on The Last Dance that he didn't like Isiah, and the feeling seems to be mutual. 

However, many people have pondered the idea of reuniting MJ and Zeke face to face and see if they can make amends. Just like Magic Johnson and Thomas did or Shaquille O'Neal and Kobe Bryant. 

Shaq is the one trying to make this happen, as he recently suggested on his 'The Big Podcast with Shaq.' The Los Angeles Lakers icon would be interesting in producing this special show, but this won't be easy to carry out.

“I’m gonna try to get that produced. A conversation between Michael and Isiah.“

If he pulled this off, it would be incredible for everybody. Jordan and Thomas have exchanged digs in recent times, and carrying beef for over 30 years seems like a lot. Perhaps it's time for them to sit down and settle their differences. Time will tell if Shaq can work his magic with the two legends.

Seeing Jordan and Thomas face to face would be a huge event, but this is unlikely to happen right now, regardless of Shaq's desire to make it a reality.
