Isiah Thomas Denies Pill Overdose

The NY Post got a hold of Isiah, and here was his version of today’s events: “Thomas, 47, denied those claims and inexplicably insisted that it was his 17-year-old daughter Lauren who was the one having an issue but it ‘wasn’t an overdose.’”

“My daughter is very down right now. None of us are OK.”

    I’m sure they won’t, but this is where the media should back off now.

  • Anton

    I heard he used to hang out with Heath Ledger

    he didnt do it. Isiah is a victim of bad reporting, nothing more. Life moves on.

  • Jack

    Didn’t the police say the person who overdosed was a 46 year old man? From Thomas’ address? Unless that’s false reporting. I’m sure I saw a report somewhere where some official looking guy said that.

    Wow. Thats pretty crazy.

    I can see how being Isiah Thomas could be incredibly depressing. I hope he’s OK, and keeps himself away from stressful, pressure filled jobs like being the manager of anything, ever.

    In fact, in some strange way I feel like we can hold James Dolan culpable for all this.

    Can we make jokes NOW?

    I’m starting to hate everyone in the media. Except Slam of course.

    No, you’re right BETCATs. Season ending injuries, the blind, gays, these are all subjects that should be laughed at and ridiculed. But a false report about attempted suicide by a convicted sexual harrasser and alleged racist? Off limits. Cool beans.

  • davidR

    jukai, can you explain to me why any of those things SHOULD be laughed at and ridiculed?

  • http://hibachi20.blogspot.com/ RV

    david, he is saying they have been ridiculed here, mostly sarcasm

  • Jose

    i dont think he’d lie about that. so yea. prayers to him and his family.

  • http://fjsdklf.com Jukai

    Thanks RV

    the way he describes it, still sounds like a suicide attempt, i still think its unusual the truth or some specific details haven’t came out considering a lot of people probably know what happened.

  • http://www.gmail.com serevei

    that was low anton

  • davidR

    i understand that rv (and jukai), but does other people’s choosing to make fun of the mentioned topics justify making fun of the suicide attempt? sure, they’ve been made fun of in the past, but that doesnt justify why they SHOULD be made fun of.

  • KobeStopper

    Didn’t the previous report say he took 10 Lunesta pills? Nobody that’s serious about killing himself would take just 10 Lunesta pills, I could probably swallow 10 right now and not even fall asleep, nevermind die

  • http://hibachi20.blogspot.com/ RV

    David, i dont think it really matters in this situation, i’m pretty sure Jukai’s problem was being told we couldn’t write something, not just what that something was. It was a little weird given there’s really no rules when it comes to comments, i get why it was done, but its inconsistent when you pick and choose when its ok to maake insensitive jokes. Should you make those jokes? Well, probably not, but then again here they’re free to say whatver they want as long as they’re not breaking rules, if there are any.

    I no longer need to post, just outsource what I say to RV

  • http://hibachi20.blogspot.com/ RV

    Jukai, i’m just trying to be nice now, since i’m completely going to kick your ass in the fantasy league

  • http://www.celtics.com KobeWearsPurplePanties

    Let’s not forget Isiah wasn’t always a angry little coach, he was also an angry little player. What a douche. Between the Knicks, Mets and Yankees, MAN I love Boston! Go C’s!

  • http://www.celtics.com KobeWearsPurplePanties

    What’s a Betcat? Is that like a dingo?

  • Gaz

    ^^^^^^^^^^ no it’s more like a tiny little defenseless pu$$ycat with extremely small genitals

  • Gaz

    it also lives in hibernation for it’s entire life, never has a mate, and never socializes with any other animals. It is an extremely rare animal, and can only be found in small dark rooms around computer screens.

  • http://fjsdklf.com Jukai

    I don’t know who this Gaz is, but I like him

  • Gaz

    Kobe’s purple panties >>> BETCATS

  • Gaz

    But BETCATS denied being homosexual, and we all know how that worked out… so things aren’t looking good for Isiah.

  • chintao

    Isiah’s daughter must be depressed that she wasn’t adopted.
