Whatever measuring stick Knicks owner James Dolan uses to determine Isiah Thomas's future with the team, he might want to consider the wishes of his best and most promising player.
Eddy Curry, the franchise's 24-year-old cornerstone, said that if Dolan fires Thomas, he would want to follow him out the door.
The declaration came late Tuesday night, when Curry was asked if he would be surprised if Thomas didn't return next year. Curry said he would be surprised, and added that he would be very unhappy about it, too.
"I'd be shocked, I'd be (angry), I'd be a lot of things," he said. "I'd be trying to get out of here."
Curry, who was speaking after the Knicks defeated the Clippers, was asked if he was completely serious.
"Definitely," he said. "I'd be on my way out."
