And we thought Danny Ferry was a bad GM
I can't do any more justice to recapping the madness that is the Isiah Thomas sex harassment trial than Bill Simmons has done on espn.com's Page 2, here. Anyone care to predict the verdict? Putting all of the salacious allegations aside, if any one fact is going to doom the Knicks, it's the post-termination memo that came from the desk of the VP for Human Resources (which he denied writing) detailing the plaintiff's performance deficiencies in an attempt to justify her termination after the fact. Ouch.
