    Default Isiah Trying to Bring Paul to Knicks?



    This is the reason James Dolan continues to lean on Isiah (Thomas) for advice, even though Isiah doesnít have an official position with the Knicks. (If he did, Isiah would be in violation of NBA bylaws for having contact with players during the lockout).

    Isiah played a role in the Knicks signing Amaríe (Stoudemire) two summerís ago and he played a role in the Melo (Anthony) trade. Heís now working behind the scenes to help the Knicks land Chris Paul.

    What role did he play with Melo and STAT's acquisitions?

    STAT has been working out with the little cretan, too.

    What could Isiah possibly do to help us? I mean we already know CP would come here if he were a FA right now. Isiah can't do anything this season because he has no influence over the NBA controlled Hornets and what they ultimately decide to do.

    I'm confused as to how he's helping with this situation.

    Someone remind me of what happend(happens) during the last lock-out regarding the trade dealine. Was it still in effect or skipped? I forgot.

    I'm wondering is it possible that when/if the season is cut short could we be starting out with CP3?

    That would depend on what comes out of the new CBA. If they decide on a hard cap it would be difficult to even sign CP3 and still fill out a competitive roster.

    isola and company needs to get off isiah;s dick, seriously this is just isola trying to get attention during an nba lockout....

    What brought amare here was the money, city and his vision of NY as a top team again

    What brought melo was the same reasons plus the fact that Amare was here

    What will bring Paul here, if he comes, are the same reasons plus the fact that we have amare and melo

    its simple and it has absolutely nothing to do with thomas

    Isola is picking at straws and is saying this for attention and because Amare is working out at the FIU facility but people forget amare grew up in florida

    You are incorrect, sir.

    Amare has gone on record saying that he never even met Isiah before signing in NY.
    And even Dolan came out at the Melo press conference and denied vehemently any involvement by Isiah. Which, I admit, could have been a smokescreen, but anyone who followed the whole situation only needs a sense of logic to know that Isiah was not part of the situation.

    when is Isola and (his follower) Dywler going to write an artical on Isiah
    having Dolan hire his ex-boss Donnie Walsh to delete the Knicks $100M
    per salary cap too. LOL

    CP3 creative PG style of performance is an above average super-star.
    CP3 is more than just a Franchise-Player, he has become the "MAN"
    that can find a buyer for the New Orleans Hornets organization.

    The Knicks is straight at the PG spot with Billups teaching the cheap
    help (TD, Iman, Rauntins) to play a solid 24 mpg.
    The Knicks biggest problem lies in headcoach Dantoni....since 2004 Mike
    has been coaching Amare to be a center. The Amare & Shaq tandem in
    2008 makes u question a Howard & Amare tandem today.
    Plus Dantoni coaching is questionable for Carmelo's offense and no defense.

    Hypothetically speaking.....if the Knicks wouldve traded PF-David Lee for
    GS Warriors SG-Monta Ellis....... Lineup
    "PG-Felton, SG-Ellis, SF-W.Chandler or Gallo, PF-Amare, and C-Mozgov"
    do u think the Knicks wouldve traded for Carmelo Anthony???
    The Zach & David Lee trade had Isiah Thomas written all over it....
    making Donnie Walsh a mistake in NY.

    THANK YOU!!! people think we need a superstar at every damn position.. We are not perfect right now but we can build on what we have... Billups is good for right now and we have TD coming to his own and Iman who can play a few minutes at point.. It would be good to have Paul but really its not a necessity right now... How about we get a solid big man and stop having Amare get in foul trouble or have him get abused by BROOK LOPEZ?
