    *NBA Hall of Famer Isiah Thomas appeared on ESPN’s Keyshawn, JWill & Max radio show Tuesday and shocked the hosts when he hung up because of the photo they used of him.

    “I’m looking at my picture. Come on, Keyshawn, y’all doing that to me?” Thomas asked when he saw the image, reports.

    “I saw Max Kellerman’s picture up there. I saw your picture up there. Y’all are smiling. Y’all just had my man up there, you know, doing the football. He was smiling,” he continued. “This is the picture y’all put up there of me?! What are y’all doing at ESPN to me? Come on, man. That ain’t right. You know that ain’t right.”

    “C’mon, man, what’s wrong with y’all? Why y’all do this to me? This is just messed up. As a matter of fact, y’all should just take that down,” he added while host Max Kellerman teased that he looked like a bitter and angry Black man in the image — which was precisely Thomas’ issue with the photo.

    Thomas warned that he would hang up on Kellerman and his co-host Keyshawn Johnson, and he did just that. He called back moments later after the producers changed the photo. 

    Keyshawn Johnson and Max Kellerman continued the conversation about Isiah Thomas and the picture later in the show.

    Johnson and Kellerman continued to speak about the photo after Thomas ended hung up. Many Twitter users called him “petty” while noting his beef with Michael Jordan.

    One user commented, “This is why I never liked Thomas petty petty petty”.

    Another wrote, “Zeke really surprised me acting like that. I’ve always been a been fan but thought his behavior was idiotic in this instance”.

    A third critic added, “Max turning this into a race issue for no reason is why I can’t listen to him. Isaiah didn’t like the picture they chose ad hung up. Plain and simple. I didn’t see the segment but hey for good Isaiah. When I think of Zeke I think of a big smiles. Max making it something else.”
