I have now lost every once of respect for Isiah T., after all that the black community has been through over the last year or so, this man has learned nothing.Has he been living on another planet. If anyone should show respect to a black women it should be a black man. After all what man of any color would dis their mother.

It seems to me that every time Isiah was on camera he came across as being arrogant. His demeanor on the stand

was no different. He obviously was not being sympathetic with the whole situation.
Do you believe the Isiah Thomas' demeanor of arrogance contributed to the Jury's decision? ----->

Isiah Thomas is a loser and his the he needs to be fired! Unless of course the NBA is OK with this behavior.
