Oct. 24 (Bloomberg) — Former New York Knicks coach Isiah Thomas was taken to White Plains Hospital Center today after overdosing on sleeping pills, WABC-TV reported, citing police and unidentified people.
Police were called to Thomas’s house in Harrison, New York, just after midnight for a report of a possible overdose of a 46- year-old male, WABC-TV reported, citing police sources. The former NBA basketball player and coach is 47, the network said.
The incident is being treated as an overdose and not a suicide attempt, WABC-TV said, citing police. Officials with the Knicks would tell the network only that Thomas is fine.
For all the animosity that Knicks fans, and women unleashed on Isiah Thomas after his various misdeeds, few could have expected such a shocking turn in his life. Details forthcoming.
