Isiah Thomas Offered the Clippers His Services Pro Bono

How charitable of you, Mr. Thomas: “Thomas is doing what he can to try to get back into the game, and with his daughter set to attend Loyola Marymount, he offered to work for the Clippers without getting paid because he is still receiving money from the Knicks, Dunleavy said. The Clippers were sympathetic to Thomas’ overtures. ‘Isiah came to us,’ Dunleavy said in a telephone interview Thursday morning. ‘I wasn’t going to be a jerk and say, ‘I can’t talk to you.’ But there’s no position in the organization for him.’ Thomas ran into Sterling at a party and apparently pushed for work and asked whether he could sit next to the owner at an upcoming game, according to Dunleavy. That didn’t happen.”

    “without getting paid” for potentially effing things up? Gee that’s mighty big of you Mr. Thomas.

  • neaorin

    Still too expensive.

    Dunleavy better watch his back, Isaiah is a master backstabber, ask Adrian Dantley and the CBA!!!

    However he is still my alltime fav player…

  • Jackie Moon

    haha, i can just imagine the stern way mike said ” there is no position here for him”. Someone’s clinging on to his power, eh mr. Gm/Coach?

    you have to like his persistent nature though. just let him handle drafting duties. nothing else.

    Oooouch. Can’t even work for nottin!

    Some of the interns mistakenly heard Zeke offer his services “pro boner” and immediately rallied to strike while BDiddy made it clear he wants no ones hands on his @ss

    He is a great appraiser of talent — look who he drafted at Toronto, Indiana and NY? He just can’t do anything else — and is apparently a horrible person. Too bad — one of the all time greats – probably the greatest little man ever.

    I dont care what people say but I think Zeke deserves another chance… What else could go wrong on the clippers?

  • Teddy-the-Bear

    Yup, he’s good at drafting “talent”. Just look at Renaldo Balkman, what a steal! And Channing Frye, my goodness!

  • Teddy-the-Bear

    And putting Stevie Franchise and Starbury in the same backcourt? This guy knows how to work!

    I would pay him to KEEP AWAY frm my franchise.

    Call me crazy, but I think Zeke would be a damn good college coach. The one part of his gm skills that was strong was his drafting ability. He has an eye for young talent. I’m looking at you DePaul, just saying.

    Offering pro bono? Isn’t that what got Isiah in trouble with Anucha? I think we are all losing it. This thread has been up for about a week and nobody linked sexual harassment to pro bono. Sad.
