Report: Woman claims Thomas asked cheerleader to flirt with refs

NEW YORK -- The former New York Knicks executive who is suing coach Isiah Thomas for sexual harassment alleged in court papers that Thomas urged a cheerleader to flirt with referees and guard Stephon Marbury cursed at her, according to newspaper reports Saturday.

Anucha Browne Sanders, a former senior vice president of marketing and business operations, filed documents to answer the Knicks' attempt to have her lawsuit dismissed.

In the papers, which were unsealed Friday, Browne Sanders alleges cheerleader Petra Pope told her Thomas encouraged Pope to flirt with officials before a game against the Nets in 2004, the Daily News reported.

"What she told me was that Isiah asked her to go into the referees' locker room and make them happy," Browne Sanders testified.


Guys the real question is how much did it help the Knicks??? They stunk with 'happy' refs how many more games might have they lost should the officials not received the Hooters waitress "hey there big guy' treatment. I don't think this that much worse than pink-painted opponent locker rooms and the favorable "winds" in Giants Stadium and the Carrier Dome
