My shadow speaks again, this time you actually make some sense. Defense is a major problem. The knicks played sloppy ball against D.C. I suppose Jefferies' energy on defense could be absorbed by Richardson, Lee and Balkman. The difference between you and I is that I am a REAL Knicks fan. I'll never bash the whole team as you did, and the old man who has clearly taken your manhood and good judgment, Larry Brown. Lee, Robinson, Crawford, Curry and Richardson have all proven to be solid players. Perhaps the presents of Jefferies is needed for the team. I'm not giving up on them. It's not too late for them to turn things around. But if it doesn't get done this month I'll say it's over. In the mean time you may want to acknowledge that you are obsessed with me. Your every word and posting mirrors that of my own. With out me no have no life.

crossing swords with the rambunctious sorts like you. I am rambunctious also, but I have an uncanny ability to analyze things at their core and peel away the garbage and fluff or spin, whatever you wish to call it.
I also love to take an annual vacation to somwwhere new. 3 years ago it was a 10 Night Carriben cruise on the Celebrity Summit. 2 years ago it was Maui. Last year it was Aruba. This coming year a 12 night Eastern Mediterranean cruise on the Celebrity Galaxy on the Greek isles, Rome, Capri,
Rhodes, Santorini, Ephesus etc. I love life , but I get great pleasure at dissecting buffoons who spout hot air. That is intellectually. These targets could be sellout union leaders, hypocritical Hillary Clinton, the capitalist class as a whole, and on a microcosmic level sports blusterers. Don I admire you a bit. You are not a dim wit by any means. You just get carried away with your
ego. You can't will the Knicks to victory, we are not on the court of play. unforetunately for both of us , and really of all of us who appreciate the game, it is completely out of hands. the bean counting Dolans own the team.
Now that their are thousand s of empty seats every game, they are panicking. I will guarantee you , whether or not you like LB, he would have elevated the game within 2 years way beyong what Isaiah could hope to do. IT is a desperate man now. His public remarks recently could be attributed
to a crack-cocaine addict or man in an opium-induced dream. The are so far
from the reality of what is going on on that basketball court. After their horrendous no-defense loss to the Wizards , he embraces the players as they leave the court. He in a sense is spitting on the intelligience of the Knicks fans, who are disillusioned with this product, and have let the players and managment know it in no uncertain terms. Now he is saying to the players it us against the fans. He will be gone in 5 months perhaps 3 if the team continues to implode.
fire isiah, dolan, get knicks on the right track again, and then hire a proven college, hopefully NY native coach.
Thomas is really speeding up his demise by starting a war with the fans. He really has no hope. What makes him think insultng us will bring u sback to the Garden?? He's just giving fans more fodder to hate him. And what the hell is thinking by saying Knick fans are appy about the future??? LOL He is clueless
New to this board, fan of almost 40 years. Isiah's spin is outrageous - team getting better, NY fans don't understand, injuries, etc. I actually sense his coaching work this year isn't bad - Curry playing well, benching the dsyfunctional Marbury/Francis, time for Lee, etc.
None of this however, can overcome the most destructive management of a sports franchise I can recall. The turnover of this team, the contracts taken on, the cap status now, the Curry trade, the roster, all speak to a truly bad executive.
Wish the press would do a "then/now" analysis of the team he inherited, the team now, trades made... they've regressed, all the while leading the league in payroll. Shocking.
I would like to retract my comment that you are nothing with out me. It wasn't nice and unfortunately it started a long boring ramble of a bunch of stuff no one cares about and every one has lost brain cells and is dumber for reading it. I tried to read it all but I only made it to wife and some kind of vacation then I fell asleep with my eyes wide open and nearly shat in my sleep!
Now its Thomas verses the fans. Tell me this, what team or city other than NY boos their own team at every home game loss? There isn't one. NY fans are the worst in the league and always have been. NY is a strange city. It's not really a city at all. It's more like a city on steroids. Every thing is amped up. The pizza, the cab drivers, the fans. All amped up. These same characters booed the Great Patrick Ewing. The greatest center of his time. Now they love him. I still don't understand why any one would pay good money to boo their own team. Love in NY lasts about 15 minutes.
Dolan on Thomas:
"I believe that Isiah will be successful. I believe that he is going to take this team and that he is going to develop it significantly over this season and I believe that we will be sitting here at the end of the season, saying obviously we need to keep Isiah. I believe that, but I'm not committed to that. What I'm committed to is evaluating it at the end of the season."
Uh oh. Looks like in Dolan's fantasy world, Thomas will win his spot.
Ladies and Gents, your fav team's owner..JIM DOLAN!!!!!!
I'm not surprised Dolan said those things about Isiah and I also wouldn't be surprised if the Knicks finish dead last, Dolan still doesn't fire Isiah.
Jim Dolan is the biggest MORON ever to have anything at all to do with any game of sports whatsoever. Get used to being the laughing stock of the sporting world and being in last place people. The fans need to STOP going to the games, PERIOD.
The fans must make Cablevision see the Knicks as a losing proposition and not as a viable portfolio investment before they will cut them loose. Until then GET USED TO BEING IN LAST PLACE and having a retarded moron as an owner.
I haven't given up on the season yet simply for the fact that it's too early to really know what's going to happen. The Atlantic Division is a mess, so if the Knicks go on a streak and don't implode there's a chance something decent might happen. I want Isiah gone as much as anyone else, but if he can turn it around and do something with our guys, then maybe the season's not lost. If/when he's fired I wanna see Herb and Patrick coach the boys.
