If you haven't been paying attention — and we briefly looked away ourselves — the Isiah Thomas sexual harassment trial is already far more fun than it has any right to be. Yesterday, Anucha Browne Sanders testified about some disagreements she had with Isiah. She had a lot to say, but not nearly as much as she claims he did.
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. "Bitch, 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. "Bitch, I don't give a [expletive] about these white people," Browne Sanders said Thomas told her.
First off, sexual harassment aside, the idea that Isiah Thomas begins every sentence with the word "bitch" warms our heart to no end. Second: Hey, Isiah is more like us than we ever knew!. Third, Stephon Marbury is testifying today.
The Isiah Thomas Trial: Their inability to settle is our glorious gain.
