WNBA President Laurel Richie says a new owner, Isiah Thomas, must be approved by WNBA Board of Governors & "this process has not yet begun."
WNBA president on Isiah having Liberty ownership: "New owners are approved by our WNBA Board of Governors & this process has not yet begun."
I really like the city of Cleveland. Always have, and probably always will.
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.
Liberty prez Isiah Thomas, when asked about the old Anucha trial, "I have no intentions of looking back. I live my life moving forward.’’
Forgive me; was traveling when the Isiah Thomas/NY Liberty news broke. But wow. That's something.
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
Told Isiah Thomas will continue doing studio work with NBA TV, maybe not as many gigs.
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?
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."
Isiah Thomas started talking to James Dolan about the Liberty job several weeks ago and says he looks forward to working w/Bill Laimbeer.
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.
FYI: Isiah Thomas will be in studio tonight on NBA TV. Meanwhile, Charles Barkley & Reggie Miller are attending Mets-Orioles at Citi Field.
Phil Jackson wins 17 games but Jim Dolan has the Knicks alive in the second round.
Jim Dolan doesn't care what you think about him. (He does care about what you write but not what you think.)
Still waiting for Phil Jackson to get a comment from the "basketball Gods."
Always remember those fans & media who told you "the guys writing that Dolan still consults with Isiah are making it up." Now...crickets.
Liberty will announce Isiah Thomas' arrival later today. Thomas tried to hire Phil back in 2006 but got rejected.
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."
If you wanted to know Jim Dolan's evaluation of Phil Jackson's job performance...you just got it.
I mean, with his history at MSG of course if Isiah was going to return you'd want him running the WNBA team.
I'll bet you a trillion dollars the Liberty won't run the triangle.
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.
I mean, I suppose when you think about it, the Isiah years at MSG seem like the good old days.
Thank God for today
Tim Duncan, 39, averaged 28.9 minutes during the regular season. Derrick Rose, 26, averaged 30 minutes.
Bottom line is resting players doesn't mean you are assured of being healthy for the playoffs. Ask the Spurs.
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?
So while pretty much everyone else (including me) was paying attention to Chris Paul, Blake Griffin posted consecutive triple-doubles.
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
Noah on the money! Hate when people (Shaq) say a team "stole" a game. The Bulls beat an inferior team...
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
Ernie Johnson does not get paid nearly enough to say studio cast offers "one of a kind insight."...
When in doubt, blame T.R. Dunn...
With all due respect to the commissioner, this is not fascinating.
The Rockets' exclusive dependance on the 3-pointer makes me sorry the ABL invented the shot. Red Auerbach just tweeted "LMFAO"...
Harden is playing like he did against the Heat in The Finals...
Houston shoots with no conscience lol
Everything you have to know about the Rockets is that the addition of Josh Smith raised their bball IQ...
Kevin McHale has that bewildered "Where's Larry when I need him" look...
First team to be called for a 3-second violation establishes a clear-cut low post advantage...
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
Dwight hasn't looked this healthy in a while
What kind of odds would you have gotten three months ago on Prigioni playing longer this season than Manu?
Despite starting three sentencing he never finished, Barkley's opinion on Bulls-Cavs is cash, no change. Don't quote me on this...
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.
First time in LeBron's 85 home playoff games w Cavs that his team never led, according to Marv Albert. Wow.
Shumpert really coming up big - but we will forget about this game in 2019 when the Knicks get that second rounder.
LeBron two turnovers in last three trips - this is where Ray Allen bails him out, right? Uh oh.
Chris Webber is the Ty Corbin of TV analysts...
If I'm the Bulls, I'd rather have Shumpert hitting than LeBron missing...
To become authentic championship outfit, Rose & Butler must learn smarter shot selection buries teams when they're down. Bulls should b +20
"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.
How brief would Barkley be if every repeated word were deleted?
Incredible season produces incredible array of worthy MVP candidates...and fans are still finding ways to be offended by the results.
Of the 12 players receiving MVP votes, LeBron is the only one from an Eastern Conference team.
Thank God for today
Berman of the Post gave Langston Galloway a 5th place vote...as per instructions from the Knicks and Charley Rosen.
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.
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.
