Keith Van Horn
The Jefferies acquired under Isiah was a totally different player compared to the one we have this season.
I thought this thread was on the last player picked in the draft-Isaiah, not the first player picked in the draft-Isiah.
Isiah Thomas is very old-old news compared to the 50+ players Walsh added to Dolan's pay roll.
back to the real Isaiah Thomas........
I dont know how so many NBA teams slept on "Isaiah Thomas" in the 2011 draft....I'm still confuse on the ROY between.....
Kyrie Irving was leading all rookies for the ROY-award untill he hit the wall with a sprained shoulder injury in 45 games....this compress 66 game season been knocking out rookies in the 3rd & 4th round.
The NBA summer league tournament for intro conditioning for rookies was missed big time for this tough schedule.
Jefferies showed to be a star-defensive-player when Jefferies have a strong defensive-leader in the lineup....on the Wizards it was Larry Hughes defensive-leadership....it was Larry Hughes Leadership again on the Knicks when the Knicks went on a win streak after the 1-9 start....this season it was Tyson Chandler defensive-leadership in the lineup with Jefferies when both Stat & Melo were out.
Notice the time frame....Jefferies has always been injured at the start of every Knicks season....Knicks started this season off as losers with rookie Harrelson as the only bigman coming off the bench, Harrellson get injured the same week Jefferies is healthy to play. After the Lin-Santy 7 game win streak era Stat return to the rotation where the Knicks would win one lose one, when Melo return from injury the Knicks went on a 6 game losing streak, during the beginning of the losing streak Harrelson becomes healthy to play, and guess who comes down with an injury? Jared Jefferies.
Isn't he responsible for Curry and Balkman too?
I hate Isiah as much as the next man but lets be accurate
Kieth Van Horn was a Scott Layden move and I think John Amaechi as well
Plus David Lee and Wilson Nate Robinson Ariza are not there and neither is then slept on player Matt Barnes!
Why are we living in the past nowadays, I opened a Marbuary appreciation thread today now and Isiah one, they personafied the worst era in Knicks basketball, we have a winning team now with promise, lets really move past it!
We released 2 PG of lastseason (Carter/Billups) to signed 3 PG this season (Bibby/Davis/Lin)....if u add combo-Shump thats 4 PG. When the Kings been trying to sell or trade their last pick...
A couple players on that list were supposed to be real good like Qyntel woods and Tskitishvili. Van Horn can at least say he had a solid career. Tim Thomas had a stretch for us where he went hard (No Amaechi), but he was still one of the more frustrating players to watch. Never lived up to his potential and was one of the worst defensive players in the NBA

Lol they clearly hired him for a publicity stunt. So in that regard I suppose it worked for the first year? Haven't heard of any notable recruits going there.
But FIU sucks in general, and bringing in a awful coach obviously wasn't going to change things.
