Zeke throws his daughter under the bus
It hasn't been a good last couple of years for Isiah Thomas. First there was the sexual harassment suit against him (where his then employer had to pay the complainant $11.6 million), then there was getting fired from his coaching gig. Now there's this:
"Authorities were called early Friday to Thomas’ Westchester County home, where police said a 47-year-old man was taken to the hospital and treated for an overdose of sleeping pills. Several media outlets reported that police confirmed it was Thomas who went to the hospital.
But reached on his cell phone Friday, the 47-year-old NBA great told the New York Post he had not been treated for a sleeping pill overdose, and that it was 17-year-old daughter Lauren who had a medical issue.
It “wasn’t an overdose,” he told the newspaper. “My daughter is very down right now. None of us are OK.”
“It wasn’t his daughter,” Harrison Police Chief David Hall told The Associated Press. “And why they’re throwing her under the bus is beyond my ability to understand.”
“My cops … know the difference between a 47-year-old black male and a young black female,” Hall said."
Now I am not necessarily a big believer in just believing the cops, and I haven't seen a picture of the daughter (could she possibly looks like a middle aged man), but I have to say I don't find it hard to believe that Zeke would try to have someone else take his heat for him.
