In 1991 Isiah Thomas was left off of the original Dream Team, some say at the behest of Michael Jordan (those two didn’t like each other).

Subsequently, Thomas blamed John Stockton for stealing his Dream Team spot, and in their first regular season encounter the Pistons ran repeated iso’s so that Isiah could drop 40 points on Stockton’s head.

In their next encounter Karl Malone dropped something else on Isiah’s head.

Three-days-from-the-Hall-of-Famer Karl Malone gave Isiah Thomas plastic surgery and 40 stitches in 1991, courtesy of this elbow.
