    NEW YORK -- Knicks coach Isiah Thomas denied calling a former female team executive vulgar names, according to a videotaped deposition played for a jury Monday in his sexual harassment trial.

    "I never cursed at Miss Sanders," Thomas said of Anucha Browne Sanders, the former senior vice president of marketing and business operations who is seeking $10 million in damages on her claim that she was fired because she accused Thomas of harassment.

    "Now have I ever used curse words around her, yes, but at her? No," Thomas said in response to questions posed by attorneys. The tape was projected on a big screen in a packed federal courtroom in the second week of the widely publicized trial.

    On the tape, Thomas also said that he would find it more offensive if a white male called a black female a "bitch," than if a black male used the same term when speaking to a black female. Browne Sanders has said that Thomas repeatedly called her that.

    I ain't even touching that one, Zeke.
