Isiah is about to lose

A jury indicated Monday that it believes New York Knicks coach Isiah Thomas and Madison Square Garden committed sexual harassment against a former team executive. There was no official verdict, but the wording of a note to the judge by jurors makes it clear they have reached decisions on the key points of the $10 million lawsuit that has turned into a public relations disaster for the franchise.

Jurors reached a decision on eight of nine questions on the jury form. They were deadlocked on the one question, which asks whether Thomas should pay punitive damages. That question only becomes relevant if the jury first determines Thomas and Madison Square Garden committed harassment against Anucha Browne Sanders.

Thomas' defense lawyers f'd up. Why the hell didn't they bring in some dude to make out with Isiah in the witness box? Nothing says 'I didn't sexually harass that woman' then coming out of the closet live on Court TV. I wouldn't recommend using Magic Johnson though. Isiah was lucky enough to avoid the kiss of death last time they swapped saliva .
