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.
