Michael Jordan Once Showed Up at Schlitz Malt Liquor Summer League, Summoned Isiah Thomas, and the Pistons Great Stole the Show


The Schlitz Malt Liquor Summer Basketball League at Chicago State University was already one of the premier summer basketball leagues in the country back in 1985. Then Michael Jordan showed up one night and summoned the Detroit Pistons’ Isiah Thomas to come down and play with him.

That night, a young Chicago native named Tracy Dildy tried to prove himself against Thomas, and Jordan’s rival stole the show. The Detroit Pistons point guard taught Dildy a lesson about the difference between college ball and the NBA.
