While reflecting on his resurfaced beef with Michael Jordan, Thomas didn’t hold back on taking shots at his former rival. He vehemently disapproved of the ugly portrayal of him in the famed Last Dance Documentary. Following this, he went on to shed light on the disrespectful behavior of Jordan and his teammates toward the then-president of the Chicago Bulls, Jerry Krause.  

During the podcast, Thomas made a compelling argument how he can’t respect the players of a team openly ridiculing the president of their team. He further solidified his case for the Bulls being the actual ‘bad boys’ of the 90s, by naming players like Dennis Rodman and John Salley, who were poached by the Bulls. He said, “So the Bad Boys, we were so bad, right? I want you to look at the Chicago Bulls championship teams that had Dennis Rodman, John Salley, James Edwards, Robert Parish, they took half our team, and they was bad for us but good for yall?”
