The documentary of the famous Dream Team in the 1992 Olympics will be set to air on NBA TV Wednesday. It looks to be a good one.

According to the preview of the documentary on ESPN, many wondered why then-Detroit Pistons point guard Isiah Thomas wasn't on the Dream Team.

Apparently, someone was in his way. And that was Michael Jordan.

“That was one of the stipulations put to me (on the team) that Isiah wasn’t part of the team,’’ Jordan said.

“Isiah was the general (of the Bad Boy Pistons),’’ Pippen said. “He was the guy who would yap at his teammates and say ‘Kick them on their ass. Do whatever you have to do.’ No, I didn’t want him on the Dream Team.’’

This is probably the most interesting part, showing that Jordan will always gets what he wants. Magic Johnson said it was a no-brainer: they had to pick MJ over Thomas.

Sorry, Isiah.
