That's hard to do. The bar is so low after the LB season. I know I'm in the minority with my opinion but I don't view Thomas as a bad GM but I think he's a better coach than he is a GM. I like 90% of the guys he brought over and I like all the guys he's drafted. Over all I like the Knicks team. I like Marbury, Curry, Randolph, Frye, Robinson, Crawford, Lee and Baulkman. I think we have a great young squad. By no means do I think that Thomas hasn't made mistakes. We all know Jerome James is ass! Thomas hasn't really put much focus on defense but nether has the Suns. I think that was the model for what Thomas was trying to create and Dolian bought it. Richardson was brought in to knock down threes but that wasn't Brown's plan for him. The result was Richardson became a better player all around. The same goes for Marbury. He to has become a better defender.
So what's the bottom line? The players have improved, are continuing to improve, they like Thomas as a coach and want to play for him. So morale is up. Team chemistry is closely tied to team morale. Thomas may not be the best X/O coach but he transformed the Knicks from a finesse team to a power team. We have an inside presence greater than that of Kurt Thomas and Marcus Camby and we've got guys that our 4 and 5 can dish the ball out to.
Over all sore from 1-10
Thomas as a Coach = 7
Thomas as a GM = 5
