WNBA President Laurel Richie says a new owner, Isiah Thomas, must be approved by WNBA Board of Governors & "this process has not yet begun."

Ian Begley

WNBA president on Isiah having Liberty ownership: "New owners are approved by our WNBA Board of Governors & this process has not yet begun."

Howard Beck

Except for, you know, missing two starters. twitter.com/EthanJSkolnick…

Chris Herring

I really like the city of Cleveland. Always have, and probably always will.

Ian Begley

James Dolan hires Isiah Thomas as president of the New York Liberty. Details and quotes from Dolan and Thomas here -- espn.go.com/new-york/nba/s…

Ian Begley

FWIW, #Knicks GM Steve Mills said in 2013 that Isiah Thomas will not be working for the #Knicks: espn.go.com/blog/new-york/…

Ian Begley

Dolan on Isiah: "He’s an excellent judge of talent & I’m confident that he will put all of his energy" into making the Liberty competitive.

Marc Berman

Liberty prez Isiah Thomas, when asked about the old Anucha trial, "I have no intentions of looking back. I live my life moving forward.’’

Chris Herring

Forgive me; was traveling when the Isiah Thomas/NY Liberty news broke. But wow. That's something.

Ian Begley

FWIW, Isiah hasn't been holding his breath waiting for another role with NYK. He's been heavily involved with anti-gang programs in Chicago

Ian Begley

Asked Isiah Thomas what he'd tell #Knicks fans who believe he'll have a role w/NYK: "I'm excited to be working for the New York Liberty."

Howard Beck

Right up there with: "You said something critical about my team, so you must have an agenda/are biased/are a h8r." twitter.com/timkawakami/st…

Marc Berman

Told Isiah Thomas will continue doing studio work with NBA TV, maybe not as many gigs.

Frank Isola

While Phil was busy communicating with the basketball Gods, Isiah was speaking directly to Jim Dolan. So I'll ask you, who's the crazy one?

Frank Isola

Berman of the Post will get Charley Rosen to break down Liberty's offensive sets. "Ahhh, the girls are running a variation of the triangle."

Ian Begley

Isiah Thomas said in a phone interview that he'd consulted James Dolan on the Liberty recently but hasn't consulted him on the #Knicks.

Ian Begley

Isiah Thomas said in a phone interview he will have no role with the #Knicks and will solely work as Liberty president.

Marc Berman

(Updated) Isiah's back! MSG's former villain hired as Liberty prez. Dolan says talked to Isiah about it since fall nyp.st/1Edw1W2

Ian Begley

Isiah Thomas started talking to James Dolan about the Liberty job several weeks ago and says he looks forward to working w/Bill Laimbeer.

Brian Mahoney

Somehow MSG bringing back Isiah is not creating the same warm and fuzzy feelings in New York as St. John's bringing back Chris Mullin.

Marc Berman

Isiah's back! MSG's former villain hired as WNBA's #Liberty president nyp.st/1Edw1W2 via @nypost

Frank Isola

FYI: Isiah Thomas will be in studio tonight on NBA TV. Meanwhile, Charles Barkley & Reggie Miller are attending Mets-Orioles at Citi Field.

Frank Isola

Phil Jackson wins 17 games but Jim Dolan has the Knicks alive in the second round.

Frank Isola

Jim Dolan doesn't care what you think about him. (He does care about what you write but not what you think.)

Frank Isola

Still waiting for Phil Jackson to get a comment from the "basketball Gods."

Frank Isola

Always remember those fans & media who told you "the guys writing that Dolan still consults with Isiah are making it up." Now...crickets.

Marc Berman

Liberty will announce Isiah Thomas' arrival later today. Thomas tried to hire Phil back in 2006 but got rejected.

Frank Isola

Isiah Thomas tells Daily News he's "excited" about his new gig with Liberty. As for a role with Knicks: "I'm not involved with the Knicks."

Frank Isola

If you wanted to know Jim Dolan's evaluation of Phil Jackson's job performance...you just got it.

Steve Popper

I mean, with his history at MSG of course if Isiah was going to return you'd want him running the WNBA team.

Frank Isola

I'll bet you a trillion dollars the Liberty won't run the triangle.

Frank Isola

Isiah back at MSG as the WNBA Liberty president. But by all means, listen to those who tell you he and Jim Dolan never, ever, never speak.

Steve Popper

I mean, I suppose when you think about it, the Isiah years at MSG seem like the good old days.

Steve Popper

Frank Isola

Tim Duncan, 39, averaged 28.9 minutes during the regular season. Derrick Rose, 26, averaged 30 minutes.

Alan Hahn

The story behind one of the hats Melo wore often this season. It has to do with @SmokinACES1 and a personal cause: espn.go.com/blog/new-york/…

Frank Isola

Bottom line is resting players doesn't mean you are assured of being healthy for the playoffs. Ask the Spurs.

Alan Hahn

Last night's Hahn & Humpty Show podcast: twitter.com/ESPNNY98_7FM/s…

Frank Isola

Gregg Popovich; "Going into the playoffs we certainly weren't as healthy as we wanted to be." Where are the "do it like the Spurs" folks?

Scott Cacciola

So while pretty much everyone else (including me) was paying attention to Chris Paul, Blake Griffin posted consecutive triple-doubles.

Peter Vecsey

Barkley is so full of shit. Suns had Rockets down 2-0 going back 2 Phoenix & he partied late into nights. Colangelo didn't speak 2 him 4 yrs

Peter Vecsey

Noah on the money! Hate when people (Shaq) say a team "stole" a game. The Bulls beat an inferior team...

Peter Vecsey

Clearly, Barkley didn't have the mental champion focus like Smith did when he stayed out late up 2-0 in consecutive seasons against Rockets

Peter Vecsey

Ernie Johnson does not get paid nearly enough to say studio cast offers "one of a kind insight."...

Peter Vecsey

When in doubt, blame T.R. Dunn...

Brian Mahoney

With all due respect to the commissioner, this is not fascinating.

Peter Vecsey

The Rockets' exclusive dependance on the 3-pointer makes me sorry the ABL invented the shot. Red Auerbach just tweeted "LMFAO"...

Peter Vecsey

Harden is playing like he did against the Heat in The Finals...

Shane Larkin

Houston shoots with no conscience lol

Peter Vecsey

Everything you have to know about the Rockets is that the addition of Josh Smith raised their bball IQ...

Peter Vecsey

Kevin McHale has that bewildered "Where's Larry when I need him" look...

Peter Vecsey

First team to be called for a 3-second violation establishes a clear-cut low post advantage...

Peter Vecsey

Quite a revelation LA isn't as as good in many areas sans Paul? Gratefully, KSmith broke it down 4 us. Clips now know what Lakers feel like

Alan Hahn

Hahn & Humpty NOW on @ESPNNY98_7FM 1-800-919-3776

Shane Larkin

Dwight hasn't looked this healthy in a while

Brian Mahoney

What kind of odds would you have gotten three months ago on Prigioni playing longer this season than Manu?

Alan Hahn

What is maddening as a hockey fan is this amazing game could be decided by a flukey bounce goal. #CapsNYR

Alan Hahn

This is as entertaining as a 1-0 hockey game can be. End-to-end madness. Players giving up the body to make plays. Can #NYR break thru?

Peter Vecsey

Despite starting three sentencing he never finished, Barkley's opinion on Bulls-Cavs is cash, no change. Don't quote me on this...

Brian Mahoney

The problem with Cavs not taking Games 1 and 2 is they're going to lose Game 3 when J.R. goes 4 for 19, 1 for 11 on 3s in his return.

Chris Herring

First time in LeBron's 85 home playoff games w Cavs that his team never led, according to Marv Albert. Wow.

Howard Beck

Oof. RT @Ben Bolch: Austin Rivers will start at point guard for Clippers.

Chris Herring

Yeah, unfortunately hes like a lot of Knick fans in that regard. MT @thatNYKfan: @Chris Herring Did I just hear Webber compare Shump to Butler?

Steve Popper

Shumpert really coming up big - but we will forget about this game in 2019 when the Knicks get that second rounder.

Steve Popper

LeBron two turnovers in last three trips - this is where Ray Allen bails him out, right? Uh oh.

Peter Vecsey

Chris Webber is the Ty Corbin of TV analysts...

Peter Vecsey

If I'm the Bulls, I'd rather have Shumpert hitting than LeBron missing...

Peter Vecsey

To become authentic championship outfit, Rose & Butler must learn smarter shot selection buries teams when they're down. Bulls should b +20

Chris Herring

When your girl forces you to go to dinner, but the game is on. RT @HayleyByrnes: What playoffs? http://t.co/DTNoKTqZaL

Howard Beck

"I think Olynyk should have been suspended for more than one game," said my daughter, clearly eying the job Rod Thorn is about to vacate.

Peter Vecsey

How brief would Barkley be if every repeated word were deleted?

Howard Beck

The Craig Ehlo story that Marv and C-Webb were just discussing is this great piece by my buddy @HarveyAraton: nyti.ms/1OSVCi8

Shump's gotta Shump. RT @Dave McMenamin: Iman Shumpert: 2-for-7 from the floor. Rest of the Cavs' starters combined: 2-for-7 from the floor.

Incredible season produces incredible array of worthy MVP candidates...and fans are still finding ways to be offended by the results.

Frank Isola

Of the 12 players receiving MVP votes, LeBron is the only one from an Eastern Conference team.

Alan Hahn

Days like this at @StAnthonysAth I would slip off campus during a free period and hoop at Wolf Hill Park. Don't tell Mr. Winus!

Frank Isola

Berman of the Post gave Langston Galloway a 5th place vote...as per instructions from the Knicks and Charley Rosen.

Chris Herring

Your bio reads "Buster of Stereotypes," yet you tweet this. Congratulations. twitter.com/GOPBlackChick/…

Frank Isola

This is what happens to your brain when you call all 82 Knick games on radio: the great Mike Crispino gave Steph Curry a 5th place MVP vote.

Steve Popper

Curry gets the MVP - and I finally get a vote on a winner. My ballot was Curry, Harden, Westbrook, Paul and James - with apologies to Davis.

Howard Beck

They are. nba.com/official RT @Cwhite028: @Howard Beck i dont know the process but if you have a vote your name should be attached.
