08:07 AM ET 09.06 | Now just past 50, Isiah Thomas is a student again. Thomas, who was fired in April as coach at Florida International, after three seasons and a 26-65 mark, said he's focused on his own education. "Right now, I'm working on getting my master's in education," Thomas said at Ollie's Bargain Outlet, a discount retailer on Telegraph, two miles south of I-94 in Taylor. ... He said he'll always feel like a member of the Pistons, regardless of where he lives, works or plays. "I always consider myself a Piston -- that's what we are; that's who we are," he said, mentioning former teammates Bill Laimbeer, Vinnie Johnson, Dennis Rodman, Mark Aguirre, John Salley and current Pistons president Joe Dumars. "You have a good Piston at the head of the organization."

Joe Dumars is doing a great job of that all on his own.

Great player, tough as nails and a possibly the best small guard to ever play in the NBA.

September 6, 2012  06:00 PM ET

Great player, odd person, terrible coach, terrible GM.

Good teams he played with in Detroit, but his after life was horrendous.
