Book “Bad Boys” hand-signed by Isaiah year 1989 with COA JSA!!!
When Isiah entered the NBA, he joined a terrible Pistons team that had won only 16 and 21 games in the previous two seasons. Immediately, Detroit improved by leaps and bounds in Thomas’ rookie season and won 39 games. In that 1982 season, Detroit made two in-season trades. One brought a bruising center named Bill Laimbeer (from Cleveland) and the other brought the microwave—Vinny Johnson (who got hot early; acquired for Greg Kelser). By 1984, head coach Chuck Daly was aboard. The 1985 draft was memorable for the drafting of Joe Dumars. The Pistons selected John Salley and Dennis Rodman in the 1986 draft. A team was built to topple the mighty Celtics and Lakers. There would be enough time to squeeze in a pair of NBA Championships and three Eastern Conference championships in a row before the sleeping giant in Chicago awoke.
Thomas was a big part of the Bad Boys, of course.
He was the captain, the unquestioned leader. He was the Most Valuable Player of the 1990 Finals, when he averaged 27.6 points, 7.0 assists, and 5.2 rebounds against Portland. In Game One, Isiah scored 16 points in the 4th quarter (finishing with 33 for the game) rallying the Pistons from ten points down with seven minutes remaining. He scored 22 points in a quarter later in those Finals.
But that was only a small chapter in Thomas’s big game heroics.
He had 24 points in the third quarter of a 1987 playoff game against the Atlanta Hawks. A player earns millions if he scores 24 points in a playoff game—much less a quarter. It is something not even Jordan, O’Neal, or Chamberlain ever did.
He set an NBA Finals record in 1988, when he scored 25 points in the third quarter of Game 6. He did that with a severely sprained ankle. The Pistons lost that series, after going back to Los Angeles up 3 games to 2. The Lakers prevailed 103-102 in Thomas’s big game.
But maybe his most memorable playoff performance was in the 1984 playoffs versus the Knicks when he scored 16 points in the final 94 seconds in the fourth quarter of the deciding fifth game.
Isiah Thomas was always a great playoff performer. In the fourth game, he scored 22 points, pulled down 7 rebounds, and dished 16 assists. The Pistons sent the series back to Detroit—this time at Joe Louis Arena. Bernard King scored 44 points in the deciding game, but Isiah led a furious rally to send the game into overtime. The Knicks won the game 127-123 but Isiah played valiantly, scoring 35 points and getting 12 assists.
Matt Dobek: “I remember Bernard King averaged about 40 points per game in that series, and in the fifth game we were down late in the game. Isiah willed the game into overtime. I’ve never seen anything like those 16 points in 94 seconds.”
He was always in the shadow of Magic Johnson.
