In May of 2015, Isiah Thomas began his tenure as President of the New York Liberty. During his first year, Isiah, in collaboration with his staff, was able to achieve record-breaking success both on and off the court. In 2015, the Liberty set a franchise record for wins, becoming the first lineup in franchise history to clinch home court advantage throughout the playoffs. Isiah also met with The Player’s Tribune this season, to discuss and create a landmark media partnership, which would provide unprecedented behind-the-scenes access to the Liberty organization in conjunction with The Players’ Tribune’s world-class editorial and creative team, to create an immersive multimedia experience.
