The New York Knicks – a lesson in how to remove the focus off a team’s poor performance

25 09 2007

Could this possibly be the diary of Isiah Thomas??? (profanity edited with a sharpie)Holy crap. Never thought it would be the case that the Knicks front office is even MORE embarrassing than their team! Way to go guys: you’ve really taken the focus off the pathetic on-court performance over recent years.
Now the basketball-public are more concerned about the ‘in-court’ performance (for a bit of satirical humor, read the diary on the left).

I cannot imagine this mess that has occurred within the New York Knicks occurring in nearly any other franchise in the NBA. If you told me that there was an NBA franchise being sued for sexual discrimination, with their GM being reamed in court over sexual harassment, I would probably have guessed the Knicks.

What the hell is James Dolan running at Madison Square Garden? At the very least, it’s a den of iniquity there… for the life of me, I cannot imagine this happening under his father Charles. The epitome of ‘born-into-money’, James Dolan has progressively run this storied franchise into the dirt mud.
Bone-headed decision after bone-headed decision, the hiring of Isiah Thomas surely ranks as the most foolhardy. If Dolan’s responsible for the decline of the Knickerbockers, Thomas has only accelerated this downward spiral. On-court personnel aside, the behavior we’re know coming to hear about from Isiah Thomas is downright disgusting. Isiah’s explanation on the latitude of the use of the term ‘bitch’ had me agog and aghast. As one phone-in commenter on ESPN’s The Herd stated,
“Isiah needs to hand in his black man’s card”

We really never get to know athletes. There’s always so much spin, so much angle. I guess we’re finally getting to know Isiah a lil’ better.

Hell… I guess they’re at least making the Lakers’ front office ineptitude look small time.
Thank god for small blessings.
