Isiah Thomas finally gets canned for all of his out of pocket tendencies and bad coaching:
Thomas was fired Friday after a season of listless and dreadful basketball, a tawdry lawsuit and unending chants from fans demanding his dismissal. This season alone, Thomas was found to have sexually harassed a former team employee, feuded with point guard Stephon Marbury and benched center Eddy Curry – the players Thomas acquired in the two biggest of a number of moves that never panned out. Things went poorly this season from the time training camp opened. The jury came back with its verdict that day, finding that Thomas and MSG sexually harassed former team executive Anucha Browne Sanders and ordering the company to pay $11.6 million in damages. Criticized by Al Sharpton and Rutgers women’s coach C. Vivian Stringer for comments he made in his taped deposition, Thomas seemed downcast during most of training camp – and never had much reason for better spirits when the season began. Chants of “Fire Isiah!” sometimes started minutes after home games, and even Dolan’s strong relationship with Thomas couldn’t convince people the coach would last.
Those “Fire Isiah” chants sound like pure comedy. Poor thang.
