Heritage Auctions announced that they're removing the 1984 NBA All-Star Game trophy awarded to Pistons legend Isiah Thomas based on theft allegations.

After becoming aware of the item being included in the auction, Thomas contacted Heritage personally, reporting that the trophy was stolen merchandise, and was taken from a display at Thomas' suburban Chicago high school.
