Isiah Thomas

5 posts in this topic

Has any one heard about these comments made by the beloved Knicks owner? This should be national news and he should be fired immediately!! Seems the media had no intrest in this story??? It happened in 2006 and I do not know what came of it...

Browne Sanders said Thomas bristled at her efforts to get players to turn out for corporate events scheduled long before he took over the team in December 2003. "*itch, I don't give a [expletive] about the sponsors ..." Browne Sanders testified Thomas told her. "I don't give a [expletive] about ticket sales."

She also said Thomas rebuffed her March 2004 request that he sign renewal-request letters sent out to past season ticket holders with a pointed shot at loyal Knick fans. "*itch, I don't give a [expletive] about these WHITE PEOPLE," Browne Sanders said Thomas told her.

Heck of a point guard, heck of a drive to win.

Isiah already has a reputation from his playing days as a racist.

But off the court? Not very insightful as an analyst, ran the CBA into the ground, wouldn't pass the ball to Jordan in his first all star game (on the court, I know), couldn't win a first round series (all 3 years) with a team (2000-2003 Pacers) that went to the finals and returned all starters, then made a series of horrendous roster and salary changes as GM of the Knicks (to put it in perspective, even worse than McHale) and fired a good coach in Larry Brown who couldn't work with the crappy roster Thomas had put together. Isiah then hired himself as coach. Then the Knicks extended his contract this past year because the under .500 squad was like 4 games out of 1st place in the horrible atlantic Eastern division.

The only thing Isiah has done right since his playing days is invest in a popcorn company. The sexual harrassment case is just the icing on the turd sandwich.

Funny how the media picks and chooses what race cards to play.... I never knew this about him. He seemed to always be portrayed as a happy-go-lucky type. Boy was I wrong.

He's a puke in business. I got cuaght up in his purchase of the CBA league a few years back. He could have doubled his money within a month of his purchase but chose to hold on and eventually fold the entire league.

my 2 cents worth,

I wish someone would sexually harrass me for 11.6 million dollars.

      Headed up this weekend and next weekend.  WIll be fishing mostly Frazer.  Sounds like the hatch is on.  If anyone has been fishing walleye on frazer in the past few days, got any tips on depth?  Presentation?     Sounds like crawlers are the ticket right now.   Thanks

      Boy, some people must just hate their life.

      I recommend considering other lakes.  URL by the 4th is nearly void of walleye.  8 years or so ago, we did a two-family trip and only caught fresh water drum.  Star Trib Article

      I was honored to be part of the "Veterans on Lake Superior" trip again this year. Channel six did a nice story about the Veterans. They were a great group out on the water.   http://www.kbjr6.com/video?clipId=13445592&autostart=true

      Hi Cliff -   Thanks for the update on the hatch.  Is this usually a bust for 2 weeks once the big hatches start?  Will be up the 30th-9th, but still excited since its the first time staying for a full week at the in-laws cabin.  Hoping to provide a few updates on the West Side through the week.

      Thanks for the info.  I searched before and after this thread for any old threads on this topic.  I got nothing before and this thread is the only one that pops up after.  I will keep looking online or stop at one of the big box stores.    Tight lines.

      J-Roy,  I use UL rod and 4 lb a lot when throwing jigs. I have found that the lighter the jig head, the more fish bite and the more you hook. Wind will mess up using light jigs though. When fishing heavy jigs, cranks, top water or spoons, I use heavier line and rod. If fishing weeds need heavy line as well.   Hook ups/bites is much higher with lite jigs. I missed about 50% of hits yesterday using 1/2 oz head. Landed about 90% of hits a few days ago when using 1/8 oz head. Tough to fish 1/8 oz on even 8 lb line so I stick with 4 lb .
