New York Knicks coach Isiah Thomas (who initially denied allegations back in ’06) and Madison Square Garden were found guilty of sexual harrassment charges.

Via Foxsports.com:

A jury ruled Tuesday that New York Knicks coach Isiah Thomas sexually harassed a former top team executive, subjecting her to unwanted advances and a barrage of verbal insults, but also ruled he does not have to pay punitive damages.

The jury did find that Madison Square Garden committed harassment against the woman, and ruled that she is entitled to punitive damages from MSG.

Anucha Browne Sanders characterized Thomas as a foul-mouthed lout who initially berated her as a “bitch” and a “ho” before his anger gave way to ardor, with Thomas making unwanted advances and encouraging her to visit him “off site.”

The case, from its inception, proved a public relations disaster for the Knicks and the Garden, with intense coverage of the three-week trial focusing on its tawdriest aspects — star guard Stephon Marbury having sex with an intern outside a strip club, raunchy come-ons from a Marbury cousin to his Garden co-workers, Thomas’ videotaped remarks about the racial dynamics of calling a woman “a bitch.”

I just feel bad for Isiah’s wife. He better not be calling her a bitch. Maybe he is, we forgot he thinks black on black bitch calling is cool.

    I am not surprised at all by this verdict. It has nothing to do with whether or not I feel that Thomas is guilty or innocent but more on the way that he presented himself throuhgout the case. I was talking with my husband on Saturday and I told him that I believe that Isaiah Thomas as going to be found guilty because of his attitude towards the case. Evertime that man came out of court he had a big smile on his face, as if the entire proceeding was a joke and in return Amika was solemn faced and always said “no comment” when asked a question.

    Oh well that is how the cookie crumbles.

    Isiah Thomas should be fired. The knicks are still losers and he just cost his boss 11.6 million dollars in a mess that he created. MSG just caught a bad one today, not a good look. I gotta hand it to Mrs. Sanders also, going up against a big corporation like that and WINNING. damn girl!!

    I feel a “certain way” about this case, I experienced a situation like this before at a place of employment. I sent flowers to a HOT “redbone” (Black woman), she took my flowers and told our supervisor about the flowers, I almost got terminated from my position for “inappropriate behavior”–thank GOD I was an excellent Customer Service Rep.—I learned my lesson real quick–I do not “crack” on no women at the gig—I just solicit PROSTITUTES.

    That’s not his wife. That’s his daughter in the picture. She’s star basketball player in Westchester County, NY.
