As the new year begins, you may be wondering if what happened in 2017 is just a fluke. If so, take solace that according to an online dating site’s latest statistics your chances of finding love are far from hopeless – not exactly promising news for those who have been on painfully awkward dates or have had their hearts crushed by “the one.” But while some relationships might last forever and others might fade away faster than they started, there was never any relationship at all.
“There Was Never a Relationship There” is a story about a woman who has never had a boyfriend and she wonders why, what’s wrong with her.
Isiah Thomas and Scottie Pippen have never gotten along. When the Chicago Bulls and Detroit Pistons battled for Eastern Conference dominance in the late 1980s and early 1990s, the two NBA Hall of Famers were fierce rivals, and their feud has lasted more than three decades.
Surprisingly, when “The Last Dance” aired, Thomas sought out to his longstanding foe to propose a ceasefire, but Pippen flatly refused.
Isiah Thomas and Scottie Pippen have never gotten along.
One of the nastiest rivalries in NBA history was between Michael Jordan’s Bulls and the “Bad Boy” Pistons. Thomas, Bill Laimbeer, Dennis Rodman, and the rest of the squad understood how to get on Jordan’s nerves like no other, and they weren’t hesitant to play dirty against the six-time champion.
From 1988 through 1991, the “Bad Boys” met Jordan and Pippen in the playoffs four times in a row. To begin that run, they notably beat the Bulls three times in a row, but their loss in the 1991 Eastern Conference Finals put a stop to their dominance and ushered in Chicago’s dynasty.
Jordan has never been a fan of Thomas because of the way those Pistons teams abused him on the floor, but he isn’t the only one. Pippen despises Thomas as much as Jordan does now, and it’s a mutual dislike.
After ‘The Last Dance,’ Scottie Pippen turned down Isiah Thomas’ offer of a ceasefire.

In his new biography, “Unguarded,” Pippen makes no apologies for criticizing any of his former opponents. According to the New York Times’ Sopan Deb, Thomas was a “dirty” player who “had a talent for uttering the most obscene remarks.”
However, the most fascinating piece from his book was how, after viewing “The Last Dance,” Thomas approached Pippen to bury the hatchet and move on from their feud. Pippen, on the other hand, was uninterested.
“You claim that Isiah Thomas contacted you after the program aired and offered you a ceasefire. You said that you did not want to communicate with him. “How come?” you may wonder. In a recent interview with the New York Times, Deb posed the question to Pippen.
Pippen said, “Well, I played in the league for 18 years and there was never a connection there.” “Why now, after I’ve been out of the league for 15 years?” It’s not like we’re in each other’s way any longer.”
As a result, the competition persists.
Pippen hasn’t singled out Thomas as the only old opponent he’s mentioned.
In his new biography, Pippen didn’t mince words when he called Thomas a “dirty” player, but it was perhaps the least surprise blow he took in the book.
Pippen allegedly labeled Jordan “selfish,” stated Charles Barkley “wasn’t devoted enough to win a championship,” and chastised Phil Jackson for putting up a last shot for Toni Kukoc instead of him in the 1994 playoffs, according to Deb.
You’ll have to read “Unguarded” to find out about the remainder of his damaging remarks.
