Isiah Thomas’s mother, Mary Thomas, dies at 87

Mary Thomas, the mother of Isiah Thomas, died today at 87, according to the Chicago Tribune.

Like so many Pistons fans, I’d heard this story, which was depicted in made-for-TV movie:

The movie also told about the time a gang showed up on the family’s doorstep eager to recruit the Thomas boys. Mary Thomas, however, pointed her shotgun at them and threatened to blow them across the expressway. She explained that there was only one gang in that house, the Thomas gang.

    Kind of random but a couple of years back I picked up the contract Isiah and his mother signed for the making of their TV movie on eBay.
