Isiah on Who (and Who Can’t) Call Women ‘B*tches’

by Marcel Mutoni

Before his disastrous tenure with the Knicks began, long before running the CBA into the ground, and even before he embarrassed himself and the entire Pistons organization by walking off the floor without shaking hands with the Bulls (who had just swept them) in the 1991 Eastern Conference Finals, Isiah Thomas was infamous for one other stupid gaffe: After losing to the Celtics in the ’87 Playoffs, Thomas came out and said that if Larry Bird – irrefutably, one of the greatest players to ever lace up a pair of sneakers – was a black man, he’d be known as just another good player, not an all-time great.

Well, guess what folks, Zeke is once again running his mouth and edutaining us on the nuances of race and the liberal use of the word “bitch”.

He was back in the courtroom yesterday (where he’s facing sexual harassment charges) and the Daily News has the details of a videotaped deposition starring Isiah which was played for the jury:

Asked if he was bothered by a black man calling a black female “bitch,” Thomas said: “Not as much. I’m sorry to say, I do make a distinction.”

“A white male calling a black female a bitch is highly offensive,” Thomas said. “That would have violated my code of conduct.”

“Maybe I shouldn’t go there. … A white male calling a black female, that is wrong with me. I’m not taking that. I’m not accepting that … That’s a problem for me.”

I only have one question here: Can Isiah do so much damage to himself and whoever has the misfortune of gainfully employing him that, regardless of all that he accomplished on the basketball court, he eventually gets himself kicked out of the Hall of Fame? At this point, I’m only sort of kidding.

    Isiah Thomas was really good at basketball. And not much else, apparently.

  • http://whitehoteboysworld.blogspot.com white hot eboy

    I’d love to hear his examination of the use of the N word. Fuc*in’ piece of shi*. Boy, I hate that stupid motherfuc*er. Hopefully, he’s convicted and has to give up his postion with the team.

  • http://www.sokofund.org/id20.html Adrian

    Isiah is a b*tch.

  • orteezy

    i still have a question…besides for our entertainment, what was the point of Marbury testifying and admitting to “get together” in a truck with a girl when this is a trial for isiah??

  • Allenp

    Correction Ryan, Isiah Thomas was really great at basketball and better than Scott Layden at being a GM.

    His logic does suck though about the word bitch. However, his comments about Larry Bird, while wrong, made sense when you consider that the level of praise heaped on Bird was greater because he was white. He was undoubtly the best small forward of all time, but he still was treated differently by people who related to him because of his color.

  • http://www.slamonline.com Ryan Jones

    Does being better than Scott Layden mean you’re actually “good”? Becuase I’m not sure it does.

  • Allenp

    Eboy, aren’t you a lawyer? I didn’t think you could get convicted in a civil trial. And the idea that the use of the N word is the same no matter who uses it is laughable. Different words mean different things depending on who says them and the context of those comments. The fact that people can’t seem to grasp that is stupid. Isiah was wrong in this instance, but please don’t apply that to other unrelated stuff

  • http://www.slamonline.com Ryan Jones

    Allenp, I’m starting to think you’re a lawyer — Isiah’s.

  • Allenp

    That is a wonderful point Ryan. Touche. I just think that fervor about Isiah’s idiocy is slightly higher than the one that surrounded Layden’s tenure. And the idea that Isiah should never work again seems a little misguided considering the fact that Layden recieved job offers after his Knicks tenure.

  • http://why-bother-reading.blogspot.com/ H to the izzo

    I’d have to agree with Allenp,but there is a double standard of sorts.But I’ve only been called a “Honkey” once and actually enjoyed it a bit.
    And Isiah should just stop.

  • Allenp

    Nah, just somebody who is interested in semantics. Because intonation and connotation are extremely important.

  • Keith

    Isian Thomas just called and confirmed: Dirk is a b*tch.

  • http://why-bother-reading.blogspot.com/ H to the izzo

    Allenp:The reason for the added fervour would be that he had to live up to huuge expectations from his playing career,Layden didn’t.

  • http://whitehoteboysworld.blogspot.com white hot eboy

    Allenp, if I called your mom a “fuc*in bitch” and I called you “a stupid N-word” would you say that those two things don’t carry the same type of disgust to you, your mom or whoever would hear me say it? Think about that. And apply it to whoever you want to. When I said convicted I meant in the court of public appeal and I am hopeful that the Knicks ownership won’t continue to tolerate his garbage leadership skills and his disguisting employee interaction.

  • http://whitehoteboysworld.blogspot.com white hot eboy

    And if another team was stupid enough to hire him, they deserve the failures that follow his soft-headed as* wherever he goes.

  • riggs

    to be honest isiah has a point, to an extent. minorities have a history of mothers being the head of the household (sometimes being the only one) so the word bitch is met with some disparity, BUT! at the same time the word gets used so much in our own conversations that it becomes second nature (which is saddening due to my first point). but i dont know, based on what ive read this “trial” is laughable at best.

  • Allenp

    I didn’t know you could get convicted in the court of public opinion. Where does that court meet again, and what are the rules of conduct? And your response to my comments about the context of comments was way, way off base. Simply put, certain people can say things to other people and it’s not offensive. People within racial groups often use deragotary terms for each other that they are not comfortable with outsiders using. Women call each other bithces and don’t like it when men do it. Homosexuals have co-opted two deragatory terms related to them and use them at their discretion. It happens in every segment of society, yet people seem to be bothered the most by it if it happens with black folks. That’s why there was very little debate over Isiah Washington’s firing for using a deragatory slur for homosexuals, but there was a national ruckucs when Don Imus used racially charged words and was fired. People act like blacks get some special pass that nobody else receives and that’s just not the case.

  • Keith

    Isiah is in trouble of outdoing Timy Hardaway as the most offensive man associated with the NBA.

  • Keith

    Cherokee Parks is still way out in front though. But that’s purely a physical thing.

  • Allenp

    And H to the Izzo, I understand Isiah came in with higher expectations. My point is was that fair or just? My point is, are the Knicks in a better position now than they were with Layden? My point is, how badly do Larry Bird and Kevin Mchale have to perform at GM before they get hit with the same level of contempt that Isiah has received?

  • http://www.rubensborges.wordpress.com Rubens

    so when it’s all said and done do you think it’ll be a good thing for the knicks?

  • http://why-bother-reading.blogspot.com/ H to the izzo

    Riggs I have to disagree with the Isiah comments because almost everywhere you go in the world the mother is usually the head of the household at least in the eyes of the children because if the dad is in the picture at all he’s usually the breadwinner and has less(in some cases) with the day to day running of the family,other than the threat of your mother telling your father which is terrifying.Its old fashioned logic,but it’s what I experienced.

  • Keith

    Kevin McHale has already performed horrendously as GM but he hasn’t hit the depths of Isiah because he hasn’t said anything rash and offensive.

  • Mo Charlo

    Hardaway had one gaffe, Isiah has a lifetime’s worth, Keith. Furthermore, the only thing stupider than calling someone duragotory things (whom you are not on a comfortable basis with) is trying to justify your actions by juxtaposing them against other groups of people. It’s like saying that it’s ok for me to drive my car around with drugs and a gun, but when black men do it they’re up to no good.

  • http://whitehoteboysworld.blogspot.com white hot eboy

    Allen, didn’t you use these same arguments during the Vick fiasco? It’s not a race issue, it’s an as*hole issue. I guess from my own point of view (and it’s my own) ANYONE that condones that type of behavior towards a woman for personal gratification is a fuc*ing moron. Sorry.

  • http://why-bother-reading.blogspot.com/ H to the izzo

    Wasn’t the Larry Brown fiasco partly Isiah’s fault aslo?

  • Mo Charlo

    Didn’t Isiah tell his Pistons to try and hurt Jordan during the playoffs one year?

  • http://whitehoteboysworld.blogspot.com white hot eboy

    And I didn’t mean you Allen, since things are so easily lost in translation on this site.

  • Ken H.

    Zeke was just jealous of Larry’s sweet sweet mustache.

  • Keith

    Is it time for the Sternbot to be activated and ban Isiah from the league? Right now, Isiah is bringing a large amount of negativity to an already reeling league.

  • http://slamonline.com Russ Bengtson

    Isiah must have a race armoire. And I fully expect David Lee to demand a trade any day now.

  • http://slamonline.com Russ Bengtson

    And yes, Stern should probably pay off Mrs. Browne-Sanders just to get this story over with. It’s just gonna get worse, I fear.

  • http://www.sokofund.org/id20.html Adrian

    Pretty soon Isiah is going to need a bodyguard. Nate Robinson, perhaps?

  • http://why-bother-reading.blogspot.com/ H to the izzo

    I heard Isiah eats children

  • http://whitehoteboysworld.blogspot.com white hot eboy

    Just white ones, Izzo.

  • http://miamiheat.com Reggie Evans

    Yes, but is it okay for a white man to call black woman a “gorilla”?

  • Keith

    Does anybody know at what stage Stern gets involved in any league situation? What kind of event (off the court) has to happen for the Commish to step in?

  • http://www.sokofund.org/id20.html Adrian

    Only if she looks like one Reggie. I generally refer to everyone that looks like something else as that thing…ie, Kevin Willis looking like Skeletor…

  • Keith

    You’re thinking of Tarzan aren’t you Reggie? I must confess, reading that whole conversation yesterday was painful. If the girl looked like a gorilla (big upper body, eating her own faeces etc), then she looked like a gorilla. If it was based on the colour of her skin, well then that’s wrong. But let’s not start this again.

  • DDB

    Isaiah is just so happy that he is not OJ. OJ may be the only thing that is somewhat keeping this story from receiving the widespread media attention it would usually demand.

  • http://slamonline.com Russ Bengtson

    So who CAN’T Isiah call a b*tch. Can a black man call a white woman a b*tch? Is that better or worse than a white man calling a black woman the same? I never realized vulgarity was so complicated!

  • http://www.sokofund.org/id20.html Adrian

    What about men calling other men b*tches? You’re right Russ, maybe someone should write up some rules for us all. Wouldn’t want vulgarity to offend anyone now, would we?

  • Bryan

    I hate everyone tries to make everything about race all the time.

  • Bryan

    i hate how*

  • http://miamiheat.com Reggie Evans

    Here is the rule, for those who don’t know: White people can’t say anything.

  • http://why-bother-reading.blogspot.com/ H to the izzo

    You actually need to have a masters degree to be ignorant these days.

  • http://slamonline.com Russ Bengtson

    I kind of don’t feel like going to any Knicks games this year.

  • Jared

    white people cannot say anything…and for the record, Isiah knows talent I think better than Bird or McHale, but the latter have taken talent into the playoffs, can’t really say the same for Isiah (no the ’04 39 win Knicks do NOT count). Never thought I’d say it but bring back Layden, at least we’d keep our draft picks, instead of trading for the hot girl that doesn’t put out (analogy…but Marbury does put out…in his truck)

  • Captain America

    Only the blackest amongst us can say f’ng b’tch, got it.

  • http://miamiheat.com Reggie Evans

    White people cannot say, “I’m Rick James, b*tch!”

  • Jukai

    Is it alright with Isiah if I still use the term “b*tchin’?”

    Is it alright for anyone?

  • Jukai

    Bird was only good cause he was white. Had he been black, he woulda sucked.

  • http://why-bother-reading.blogspot.com/ H to the izzo

    Reggie,I guess I’m racist as I’ve said that many times.I apologize.

  • http://whitehoteboysworld.blogspot.com white hot eboy

    And you guys wonder why I hate white people.

  • Jukai

    I was thinking of making that joke WHE, but I’m glad you got to it first

  • http://www.slamonline.com Khalid Salaam

    This is a really sad blog. Point blank Isiah is a fool as is his logic regarding Black women b*tches. What he said is simpy not true and he knows it. Its part of the plan to get him off. Also anyone who thinks his logic makes sense is also a fool. I’m not joking.

  • http://whitehoteboysworld.blogspot.com white hot eboy

    Praise be, Khalid. And Izzo my hate for you only lies in the fact that you admitted defeat at the hands of Taurasi without much of a fight to the contrary. Otherwise, you have a place with me in FL if you ever visited this country. That’s for real.

  • Mo Charlo

    We’re all sons of b•tches.

  • http://why-bother-reading.blogspot.com/ H to the izzo

    The reason I admitted defeat to Taurasi(not Miller-I’d destroy him)is because she is a pro,paid to perfect her craft everyday,I at most train 4 times a week.You’ll regret making that offer..

    Please don’t let this end up giving the Bill O’Reilly’s of the world a forum to discuss intra race relations in the black community. I can’t take another Imus/rap music situation. Isiah’s twisted “logic” is his and his alone. The fact that this main retains employment given his off court work history is amazing.

  • Dennard

    Really Isiah deserves to lose his job. I’m sorry, there is no logic to anything he said, and his reign of idiocy needs to stopped.

  • http://why-bother-reading.blogspot.com/ H to the izzo

    I think Isiah should be sentence to coaching a team of all white guys. Like Milwaukee.

  • http://whitehoteboysworld.blogspot.com white hot eboy

    Like the reverse “White Shadow”?

  • tike

    Frankly Isiah is kinda wrong and he does kinda make sense with the Larry Bird thing…but if your going to call someone a bitch why does it have to be a race issue?…. white hot eboy is just bannanas!! weirdo

  • Drew

    The wierd thing about what Isiah said is that he is right that it is more offensive for a white man to call a black woman a bitch than it is for a black man to do it.
    What he leaves out is that it is still offensive, degrading and demeaning for a black man to call a black or white woman a bitch.
    It might be somewhat less offensive, but it is still very offensive.

  • http://slamonline.com Sam Rubenstein

    Maybe Isiah is trying to push the envelope to see how much he can get away with before he gets fired?

  • http://whitehoteboysworld.blogspot.com white hot eboy

    Tike, learn to read, I was the person who said it’s NOT A black/white issue, it’s an assh*le issue. Go back to 11:31a comment. Unless you are still being schooled, there is no excuse for that type of stupidity.

  • http://www.sokofund.org/id20.html Adrian

    sentenced*

  • http://slamonline.com Russ Bengtson

    Forget white guys, Isiah should have to go coach the Detroit Shock. I’d like to see him call Cheryl Ford a b*tch and get knocked the f*ck out. She could add to the scars her pops left.

  • http://whitehoteboysworld.blogspot.com white hot eboy

    That would be a better pay-per-view than the last UFC event.

  • http://miamiheat.com Reggie Evans

    I did not pay to view the last UFC event.

  • Jason

    He wouldn’t last a day, Russ. Even Bill had to bring in Rick for back up. I’m sure Isiah’d find a way to screw up a team with 2 rings in the last 5 seasons though. You could even give him the Spurs and Tim Duncan would all of a sudden be a 300 pound black hole.

  • Allenp

    The funny thing is I said Isiah was wrong, said I didn’t agree with him, and addressed the larger point that WHE made, and nobody wanted to discuss that. We want to focus on how wrong Isiah was and not discuss the idea that there are instances when it is ok for some people to say things that are offensive. That’s what his point was, although it was not valid in this instance.

  • Allenp

    All this latent whining about the poor oppressed white folks is sad, man. And black people are the ones who are supposed to wallow in our victimhood. Crazy.

  • http://whitehoteboysworld.blogspot.com white hot eboy

    Allen, you are intelligent but extremley confusing.

  • http://why-bother-reading.blogspot.com/ H to the izzo

    The white man just can’t catch a break.

  • http://whitehoteboysworld.blogspot.com white hot eboy

    Allen, just for you then, I hate white people, haven’t you read these pages in the last day and a half? Which means, I hate myself, and my son and my family and everyone other person in the known universe with marshmallow colored skin. Just to clarify.

    so am i to understand that if a brotha calls me a b*tch, i shud let it slide, but if a white man calls me a b*tch i should be highly offended??? wow…thnx Isiah for a very informative life lesson & thnx for also giving me reasons to not to like you even more, you ignorant fool. i cant even begin to describe my disgust.

    Because at one point didn’t he allegedly tell Ms. Browne-Sanders that he was only concerned with winning basketball games? They can’t even do that!

  • http://slamonline.com Russ Bengtson

    It’s a tricky subject, though. If I say that I don’t like what Isiah’s saying, I’m just another white guy trying to dictate a black guy’s actions. Which makes me a racist, apparently. This is why I wish someone like Magic would come and punch Isiah right in the mouth. Think Magic refers to his female subordinates (white OR black) as b*tches? I’m thinking no.

  • http://slamonline.com Russ Bengtson

    I’d like to think I don’t look at it as a white or black thing as much as I look at it as a “respect for other people” thing, but maybe that’s just me. I’ll shut up now.

  • Allenp

    We’ll see if the Knicks win this year. If they win Russ, I’d like to see you lining up requesting that Larry Bird be fired as GM of the Pacers.

  • Allenp

    And I wasn’t trying to be confusing WHE. Just trying to point out that I never defended Isiah’s actions or his comments about women. Ever, check my posts. I said that the idea that some people can say certain things and it not be offensive is not stupid. It’s reality and it’s practiced by a lot of different groups of people. Everybody seemed to miss that point, in order to focus on how much of a sucky human being Isiah is.

  • Allenp

    Russ, if it wasn’t about race, why did so many people fixate on the “white people” aspect of it and not the disrespect to women. You check the posts and see how much more often race is brought about up compared to chauvinism. It wasn’t about him disrespecting women, it was about him saying that he as a black man can say something that white people can’t. As stupid as his comments were in this instance, that doesn’t make them invalid in other settings. It’s amazing how people keep glossing over this.

  • Allenp

    And if it wasn’t about race, you’d better tell Mutoni cause he took it there in his original post when he brought up the Larry Bird story about Isiah. He neglected to mention that Isiah was backing up Dennis Rodman’s comments which had been carried over to him by a sportwriter seeking a fresh angle.

  • http://why-bother-reading.blogspot.com/ H to the izzo

    Allenp:By Isiah saying those comments he implies that the term bitch is only offensive to women if said by white people.Mutoni putting up that quote is just showing Isiah’s history of stupid comments,I mean anyone who thinks that if Larry Bird was black he wouldn’t be remembered.That is bull.

  • http://slamonline.com Russ Bengtson

    Dennis Rodman’s comment was ignorant, backing it equally so. (Or are you going to tell me that Dennis and Isiah were right?) And Larry Bird SHOULD be fired as GM of the Pacers if they don’t turn around soon. Hell, he probably should have been fired for making the Stephen Jackson/Al Harrington trade, or dragging his feet on Ron Artest. And let’s not get caught up in what “people” are fixating on. I’m disgusted by the fact that a team executive thinks it’s OK to call a subordinate a b*tch in a corporate environment. Period.

  • http://slamonline.com Konate

    Russ, i agree and i dont think magic calls cookie a bitch but i jus meant that he should know better to say sh1t like “a black man calling a black female “bitch,A white male calling a black female a bitch is highly offensive,” when he is under a microscope.

  • http://slamonline.com Konate

    Russ, if a women is acting like a b!tch is it ok to call her a b!tch?

  • http://slamonline.com Russ Bengtson

    Agreed. I’m just nervous about his whole implied double standard and where it stops.

  • http://slamonline.com Konate

    we do not know what this women did to warrant Isiah’s words. Now there is a great chance he was wrong for calling her a bitch but there also is a chance that she was being a bitch. just as if i was being a A$$hole, you would call me a A$$hole.

  • http://slamonline.com Russ Bengtson

    As a boss, there aren’t many–if any–circumstances I can think of under which I’d be justified calling a subordinate a b*tch.

  • http://www.sokofund.org/id20.html Adrian

    Isiah is still a b*tch.

  • speedy

    Interesting to hear how Isiah would have reacted if she would have taken it to the same level. “Shut up you little m*therf*cker” would have been a good answer to his disrespect for .
    But the guys in this post that think vulgarity is a problem today are right. A big event in Vegas started with the words ” It’s Britney bitch ” from the mouth of a former “Pop Idol” . Many people don’t think about what they are saying (and the consequences) anymore.

  • http://why-bother-reading.blogspot.com/ H to the izzo

    Konate,It wasn’t just him calling her a bitch,it was his whole attitude towards her,the bitch thing was far from a thing said in the heat of an arguement

  • http://slamonline.com Russ Bengtson

    Since I’m indiscriminately handing out punches in the mouth today, Britney could sure use one. In fact, forget Simmons’s idea of a Commissioner of Common Sense. I want to appoint a Commissioner of Punching Idiots in the Mouth. Chris Childs is my first choice for the position.

    Any Winehouse is a survivor. She seems to have a Keith Richards-type future ahead of her. Owen Wilson, I don’t give a sh*t. My big question is who dies first between Britney and Lindsay. I think it’s gonna be close.

  • http://hoopsboston.com E.H. Munro

    As a Celtics fan I’m always up for a little Isiah hate. However, I’m also scrupulously fair and have to correct a bit of misinformation in the article. The remarks that are being attributed to Isiah as regards Larry Bird were not uttered by Isiah, but by Dennis Rodman. Isiah was asked about them directly after and made an ironic echo of the Worm’s tirade (in fact, if you read his words he said exactly the opposite while agreeing with Rowdy Rodman).

    He was trying to make a larger point about how the game of basketball was covered by the media, and how individual players were perceived. His point being that the American media wouldn’t give Bird his just due if he were African-American rather than that Bird was overhyped because of his pigmentation. See the whole Magic v. Bird era for reference. It was always portrayed as “Magic the athlete” vs. “Bird’s skills” despite the fact that neither players was particularly athletic in the Michael Jordan run/jump manner. Magic may have been better than Bird at the run/jump stuff, but not enough to really make a difference. His strength was always between his ears and his head for the game (just like Bird).

    Ultimately Thomas’ biggest mistake was in assuming that the drunken, middle-aged, white reporters standing in front of him were intelligent enough to understand what he was saying and report them fairly. Because, in the end, the empty talking heads won, his point forgotten, and his words spun into Worm’s to make them mean something different (leaving him holding the bag for Rodman’s less temperate remarks).

    If they do it,then Nicole Ritchie and the rest of the supertramps will ant to try and out do each other.This could get rid of all the celebutards.My money’s on Britney to do it any day now and of course Lindsay will try and make her suicide better.

  • Kabelion

    First, that quote is incoherent and obviously edited to seem incoherent. Isaih is unprofessional for calling a subordinate out of her name, nothing else. She should have quit or sued as soon as she was called out her name, not after she was fired. It doesn’t make him an idiot or any less of a team president. If you want to look at it that way, every team with records worse than the knicks should have fired their front office personnel at the end of the season, because they are worse than the team Isaih has built.
    He didn’t ruin the CBA, the CBA was destined to fold. I hate when people say that he was the reason they folded. He tried to make the CBA into what the NBDL is now, and failed, because Stern said no to the deal.
    As far as Bird being the greatest small forward of all time. I’d prefer to say he had the best career in the nba as a small forward. Rick Barry was better. Dr. J was better. Truth be told, Magic was a small forward playing point guard, and he was better. The “if Bird was black” argument is about as pointless as when people said that if Isaih was five inches taller he’d be called the greatest of all time. It’s unmeasurable. Truth is, if Bird were black, he would be the oddest looking black dude ever. The man has no lips.

    Tarzan, re: your Oak-tree comment. I second that motion. Further to your motion, I would like to also appoint Charles Oakley commissioner of b*tch-slapping punk b*tches, be they black, white, brown, red, yellow, green, or Isiah.

    Charles Oakley should run for president.

    This is a basketball forum right? Hopefully, slamonline will not become trash like so many other forums out there.

    The issue isn’t about Isiah agreeing with Rodman for what Rodman said about Larry Bird. This is an issue with Isiah being an ignorant motherf*cker. I’m sorry dude, but should be gone for this sh*t he pulled. His past history has shown that he doesn’t handle power very well. He should have been fired 2 years ago based on his management decisions, then you add that he was calling an employee a b*tch about every other sentence? That sh*t is nuts!!!

  • {*JOK3R*}

    Anywayz black, white ,Isiah Thomas nobody has a right to call a women a b*tch maybe ask women what they think is offensive. Damn he just a ignit son of a gun.

    This case is going downhill fast. Whether Brown win or lost this case, Isiah, Marbury and MSG staff admitted that they often used those offensive terms. This case is much worse than Kobe’s.
