While in pursuit of their first NBA championship, a three-time NBA All-Star’s admiration for a $4.2 billion NFL team leads to an unexpected run-in with Isiah Thomas.


A Michigan native is seeking out meetings with basketball icons. Most recently, they met with Chicago Bulls legend Michael Jordan and today they met with Detroit Pistons star Isiah Thomas. The Detroit Lions’ NFL game against the Carolina Panthers attracted many guests, including a star from the Phoenix Suns who visited before his season opener in Detroit. Demonstrating his passion for Detroit sports, the young superstar wore a Lions outfit with a coat and hat.

His most memorable experience at Ford Field did not occur during the game, but rather his private exit with Zeke. Additionally, there was a heartfelt exchange of compliments between the two legendary NBA players.

An NBA All-Star, Isiah Thomas, forges a connection with another player who has also been selected for the All-Star game three times, united by their shared love for Michigan.

Michigan has been responsible for producing several top-performing athletes globally. In the realm of basketball, the spotlight is on Devin Booker, the shooting guard for the Suns. As he enters his 9th season in the league, the 26-year-old is determined to win a championship. With two major trades that brought Kevin Durant and Bradley Beal to his team within the past year, there is a great deal of anticipation surrounding his performance.
