Protestors speak out against Isiah Thomas; Garden denies sexual harassment

Protestors gathered outside Madison Square Garden tonight to protest the hiring of Isiah Thomas.

Madison Square Garden said WHAT?

The Garden released yet another statement Friday afternoon, hours before the start of the WNBA season, claiming Browne dropped her complaint and “accepted that MSG and Mr. Thomas did not admit guilt or concede any wrongdoing,” despite a federal jury awarding Browne punitive damages before the two sides settled.

“Nothing’s changed,” Caple said about the statement. “I’d like to believe in a positive outcome, but I don’t trust the leadership. Until Thomas gives me and the community and the players a reason to trust him, he doesn’t deserve it. They’re still in denial.”

Asked about the statement before the Liberty’s season-opening 82-73 win over the Atlanta Dream, Thomas tried to shift the focus to the players.

“I’m not here to talk about the past,” he said. “I’m only here to talk about the New York Liberty.”

He said “the statement speaks for itself,” when asked about the protest outside the building. Pressed on it again, Thomas replied “If you have Liberty basketball questions, that’d be great.”
