The Fresh Prince of Bel Air has had some had some memorable cameos: Donald Trump, Evander Holyfield, Heavy D, Tevin Campbell, Riddick Bowe, Ken Griffey Jr and Kareem Abdul Jabbar to name a few. Hey, how about that episode when Will Smith went one-on-one with Isiah Thomas?
Bombarded with a ton of coursework and a star role on the Bel Air Academy basketball team, Will Smith fell asleep in class and went toe to toe with the Detroit Pistons legend.
Wow, Will even blocked one of Thomas’ shots!
“That was great,” Thomas told me on this weeks episode of Scoop B Radio. “Not only was it great, what was real cool, Will, at the time, was a basketball fan, so he could play a little bit. So, being on the Fresh Prince and then hanging with Will, that was awesome. I mean it was…I guess he was in the dream, and I was in too.”
Not only did Thomas chat about going one-on-one with Smith, on this weeks episode of Scoop B Radio, but he also touched on a ton of topics like how he almost drafted Kevin Garnett when he was part owner and team president of the Toronto Raptors, how the Raptors were way ahead on the learning curve of small ball basketball that many NBA teams like the Golden State Warriors and Cleveland Cavaliers play and more.
