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.

    The Knicks will still suck ass. It’s been over in NY for basketball since the late 90’s.

    thk gawd for frozen face Couglin and the Giants! That was really a great game.

    To have been such a gr8 BB player Zeeke doesn’t have clue on how to run a team. First this guy ruins the CBA and now the Knicks. Maybe now they can get rid of all of the 8 guards and SF’s they have on a 12 man roster.

  • memchee

    i don’t even like the knicks, but good riddance….

    his thugball and problack player ish ruined indiana’s team. Under him, promising white players were pushed to the end of the bench just cuz’ they were white.

    then he ends up with the knicks overpaying scrubs, sexually harrassing women and ruining a team that probably will take 7-10 years to recover.

    NY NICKS overal need a big hoe sit down

  • stwin

    aren’t NYC fans the best???

  • Coop

    He’s no longer the coach but still has job with the team I wish I could get fired like that. As far as the sexual harrassment there’s no way he did that she was to damn ugly. He would be better of buying some a**

    Talk about ARROGANCE…(from the door)😦

    @Coop…you wrong for that comment *snickers*

  • delano

    So what he got fired. He is still gonna get paid no matter what. He will have no company title or position but he will still get paid by the Knicks as an advisor. Plus, he is super rich, he will never go broke, his great great grandkids will still be living of of his money and that is the bottom line because he is a hall of famer.

    That might be true, but what young BLACK assistant college or pro coach or fomer player will get looked over because yet ANOTHER black coach failed as a head coach because they acted a fool or had no control of the team.

    That’s what this is really about. When will our black people learn on how to run a business or team properly. Why do black players show their behinds when a brother is in charge and tend to behave when a white guy is in charge?

  • Misty Knight

    Look the Knicks will always suck..this along with the law of gravity are the laws of the universe!..that being said I cant beleive that Isaiah is going out like this! how disgraceful! I always thought he was such a “stand-up” player..but maybe I was getting him confused with Joe Dumar…yeah thats it

  • Why you gotta be anonymous??

    At the end of the day it’s not ALL about money..smh only po’ muthaf**** say that ish. Whats money without the respect?

  • http://www.moviemadentertainment.com Van (Tokyo,Japan)

    That’s really sad, I kinda feel sorry for him. Everything seems to be crashing down on him at once.I will pray for him.

  • JaliliMaster

    Grace, co-sign 100%. HarlemChic, agree with u too. It is all about power. This idiot deserves everything he gets and more. I hope he rots in purgatory. Folks on here actually saying they feel ‘sorry’ for him. SMDH!!!!!!!!

  • statim08

    Finally the Knicks did something right.

  • Shay

    It took them long enough. I think the Nicks owners don’t like to be told what to do so they tried to do it in their own time.

    Now if only the Pacers could get rid of Larry Bird. That smug idiot is running the team into the ground.

  • Whatchaknoaboutdat?

    Everybody has made some really good points about Isaiah and his career… all I can say is Karma is a bi-yotch!!!!!

  • DM

    Isaiah and Magic used to do the do back in the day, ya’ll.

  • gina

    They need to change all of the players as well. Everyone is focusing on Isiah and his poor coaching. They only won 23 out of like 80 games. The whole team needs to be traded especially that curry, and Marbury. Isiah can’t make these guys better. Good riddance to all. I hope.

  • http://www.myspace.com/birdshu Bird

    Well this needed to happen. I feel bad for him a little bit, but he messed up in so many ways that he had to lose his job.

  • And.....

    That’s what the f**k he gets! He has the “Lil Man” syndrome and thinks that he’s more grandiose than he really is. I bet his oversized ego has been taken down a couple of notches.
