New York Post reports Isiah Thomas being considered for studio analyst role at ESPN

Phil Mushnick of the New York Post:

Isiah Thomas , who had an undistinguished run as an NBA in-game analyst with NBC — and as a Knicks’ exec was successfully sued for sexual harassment — is a candidate for a studio position with ESPN.

Now, full disclosure, I don’t read Mushnick because he’s … well … the worst. But he has reported on the sports news media for a long time, so there’s probably some credibility to the report. I remember when Thomas worked for NBC. As ex-jocks-turned-broadcasters go, Thomas was pretty solid. He certainly has the charisma and on-camera presence to succeed. And failings as a team executive don’t necessarily mean someone can’t succeed in broadcasting, as a certain former Detroit Lions general manager will attest.

    Let’s hope he replaces Magic Johnson as the retired legend on the ESPN team. Magic was a great player, but he’s a terrible commentator.  Isaiah has snakey charm and knows how to talk about the game.
