Former employee Anucha Brown Sanders filed a lawsuit against Isiah Thomas and Madison Square Garden claiming wrongful termination and sexual harassment. She claimed that when she approached owner James Dolan about Thomas' inappropriate sexual advances, Dolan fired her in retaliation. The lawsuit dragged on for about a year and in 2007 the jury ruled in Anucha's favor. The trial lasted for three weeks and she was awarded $11.5 million. Thomas kept his job for one more season and remains friends with Dolan till this very day. The rest of the NBA hated the Knicks in the '90s because they were jackasses on the court—but Knicks fans loved their guys. In the '00s the Knicks were pathetic douchebag jackasses off the court—and Knicks fans just wished they'd go away.
