This is the best news possible for the future of this team! If this stuff plays out to be true in any way, shape, or form, it could hopefully lead Dolan to fire Isiah! The guy was so eager to run a guy like Sprewell out of town that something like this should drive him nuts. Yeah sure in the short term the organization looks bad, but hey, the organization can't look any worse since they're paying a league high for a team with such a bad record.
I for one hope this lady's claim is found to be true and that Isiah gets fired as a result. Ideally Dolan would be forced to sell too and we'd get a real owner with some sense, but that's of course not going to happen for quite some time.
Re: Actually this is great news!
u must be qrazy to want isiah fired...did u see the knick team that isiah was given and the team he put it into...knicks just need to get some chemsitry and get used to playing wit each other...i believe the knicks are one player away to be an elite team...they need that toughness on D(maybe ron artest) but firing isiah is not the solution

I'm crazy to want Isiah fired??? Are you seriously out of your mind? Isiah is honest to god the worst GM in the history of NBA, if not all sports! Since the beginning this guy has had no clue and he actually has this team in a worse situation than when he got here.

Then the team started on a nice win streak...were playing on a roll...Marbury and Van Horn were running the pick-n-roll to great results and things were going well....what happens? Isiah trades Van Horn off for Tim Thomas and Nazr Mohammed and sited a need to "get younger and more athletic." The team went into a rut not surprisingly. Lets also not forget the pathetic way he fired Don Chaney and had to scramble to bring in Lenny Wilkens...a coach who the game had passed years ago. The season ended with the team limping into the playoffs and being embarassed by the Nets. In that season alone there were a number of questionable moves, but the team made the playoffs and things were looking up.
So from there Isiah decided to make things worse. Then there was the horrendous signing of Vin Baker last off season. Then season starts...Nazr Mohammed finally found some ability and was playing well, and Isiah even sited as much. What happened? Suddenly at the deadline Isiah decides to trade Mohammed and Baker away... (What happened to younger and more athletic??) and added the great Maurice Taylor and Malik Rose and unbelievably enough the man actually ADDED TO PAYROLL in doing so. I mean if you're going to add money, you'd think it'd be for good talent...to do it with these two...ugh.
And I still haven't even mentioned Jerome James, and the horrendous make up of this roster. Granted I think this roster is better than 13 wins, but you can't tell me that when a GM puts together a roster with no SF and no true PG, (combined with all the dumb moves he's made in the past)...that this guy deserves to stay in his job. Lets also not forget that we basically have no significant draft picks for the next few yrs, and we're still capped out.
And ok Isiah supporters will bring up the fact that he's drafted well...yes he has, so lets make him head of scouting. I for one, want a GM here that has a definite plan and knows what he is doing. Isiah took a bad situation and made it worse and I want him gone before he digs the hole even deeper.
