Isiah Thomas back in New York as Liberty president

Isiah Thomas is back at Madison Square Garden. Thomas has been hired to be president of the New York Liberty of the WNBA. Thomas also will have an ownership stake in the team. Garden CEO James Dolan, who owns the Knicks and Liberty and is an unflinchingly loyal Thomas supporter, said he began discussing the role with Thomas in the fall and he has been pleased with the results. “Now, we’ve agreed that it is time for him to take a lead role with the team as president, and through his ownership interest. He’s an excellent judge of talent, and I’m confident that he will put all of his energy and experience into making the Liberty a perennially competitive and successful team,” Dolan said in a statement.

Here’s what the Spanish doctors determined, according to Porzingis: he needs to cease “overtraining. “Like not coming in super early in the morning after a game to get a workout in,” Porzingis said Sunday. “That doesn’t help my weight either. I keep losing weight. Those things add up and by the end of the season, I’m drained. The doctor said it too. My resistance is good. I don’t need to be running ten miles a day. …I was always doing too much.”
“Most (big) guys, when they catch the ball at the top (of the key) or in pick-and-roll, they’re looking to get off the 3,” Dwight Howard said. “Back when I first came in, it was look first inside-out. It’s an adjustment – I get it. I talked to some of the guys (Friday) night: ‘There are going to be points when I’m frustrated, there are going to be times when you’re frustrated.’ We’ve just got to stay patient with each other – understand it’s a process and to play together.”
Tony Parker has a good idea when he’ll be able to get back on the floor again. “When Dr. Popovich says so,” Parker said with a chuckle. That day is still more than a month away, Spurs coach Gregg Popovich says, but it is coming more quickly than anyone envisioned when Parker went down with a ruptured quadriceps tendon in last season’s playoffs. The next step is a return to full-court 5-on-5 scrimmaging, which Parker hopes to do this week.
