SI.com column on Isiah Thomas Sexual Harassment Lawsuit

I have a new Sports Illustrated.com column up: Breaking Down the Isiah Thomas Trial.

In it, I examine issues relating to the parties settling and also possible sanctions of Thomas by the NBA, among other topics related to this litigation.

I also interview Alan Milstein, who has litigated on behalf of
Allen Iverson, Maurice Clarett, and Eddy Curry, among other professional athletes, for the piece.

Hope you have a chance to check it out.

Update: Henry Abbott of ESPN's TrueHoop writes about my column. I appreciate Henry's thoughtful analysis.

Congrats on another great article!

This just cracks me up:

...Sanders should have been less offended by the misbehavior of African-American male employees than if white male employees had engaged in identical behavior.

what was he thinking....

This happens to be crazy for Isiah, because now he is a distraction to is team.

This case smell trouble, because how can Isiah get over this. His employee would feel comfortable around him, and if this is true Isiah job should be taken!

Whether Isiah is found to be liable or not this case could be the fatal blow to the Isiah Thomas regime in New York. Isiah's personnel decisions over the last few years are viewed as inept or highly questionable at best. Now, accompanying his personnel incompetence are major character questions gleaming daily in the news. His racial comment can do nothing positive for his situation and could potentially offend or even enrage Knicks fans, NBA fans, and the general public. This incident is the potential catalyst for what many Knicks fans have earerly awaited, the firing of Isiah Thomas.

My cable Internet service works fine, but I wish it weren't through Cablevision. Anything to avoid doing business with those odious Dolans.
