UPDATE: Isiah Thomas is an idiot mofo. He is trying to blame this whole mess on his 17 year-old daughter! He says SHE had a medical emergency. Nice! Too bad the police and ambulance reports say they picked up a 47 YEAR OLD MALE from his house. The cops say Isiah is trying to cover it up, and can’t figure out why he’s throwing his daughter under the bus. Dude, you can’t even LIE good.
Former New York Knicks president and head coach Isiah Thomas apparently overdosed on sleeping pills, a source confirmed to CBS station WCBS-TV in New York City. Thomas’ condition or whereabouts are not yet known. He reportedly was rushed to a White Plains Hospital for treatment. NBC news says he was unconscious, but breathing. A woman who answered an intercom at his Purchase home today refused to comment on Thomas’ well-being, whereabouts or anything else.
Other reports confirm that police did arrive at Thomas’ home shortly after midnight in response to a 911 call from a cell phone, but they would not confirm why. A source, however, said that Thomas’ condition was being classified as an overdose.
Thomas was fired by the Knicks on April 18 by new president Donnie Walsh, ending his dismal 2 year run as head coach. The Knicks went 23-59 last season, giving Thomas a record of 56-108 in his two years after replacing Larry Brown. Walsh, who took over as president on April 2, kept Thomas in the organization as a consultant.
Updates as they become available.
