Bad joke of the day
At a luncheon with reporters Monday, TNT basketball analyst Charles Barkleymade light of Isiah Thomas' reported overdose (apparently accidental) while referring to new Knicks coach Mike D'Antoni. Barkley said, "I think they have a better coach. This coach probably won't try to kill himself.'' Barkley didn't realize the comments were on the record and later apologized.
