    abcd, I really appreciate you picking up the Isiah bashing bat for me and smacking Isiah around like Albert Pujos smacking a baseball. I've been bashing Isiah for atleast 4 years already, but this 2007-08 season really drained me and my passion to bash Isiah and defend our Knicks. Whenever that passion comes back its going to be an ugly day for Isiahsexuals. But for now you're doing an amazing job of pointing out the OBVIOUS FACTS NO ONE WANTS TO READ(Mainly closet Isiahsexuals). Isiah ruined this franchise plain and simple. I hate Dolan, but Dolan gave Isiah the freedom and the responsibility, Thomas ruined it and thats 100% his fault, no one else. Isiah HAD NO PRESSURE; he had all the time and freedom he needed to change this organization around. Layden was pressured by Dolan especially since Layden had to continue the success from the 90's with aging players.

    I disagree...Dolan is more to blame than Isiah for the poor state of the Knicks. He's the prick that hired Layden and Isiah. Don't give him credit for giving Isiah financial freedom. Why the hell would you give a man who did a horrible job in Toronto and screwed up the CBA financial freedom? That's just plain stupid. And now, he's being a stubborn ass for not firing Isiah. Also, I don't want Isiah here for the draft. He's overrated as a drafter and I don't want any chance that he screws up the Knicks further by trading our first round pick during draft day.

    Yeah, I know. It's just sickens me how Isiah can get away with doing all this bulls#!t. You wanna know Isiah's punishment for all of this? A 4 year contract extension worth 24 million dollars, and a lawsuit that Madison Square Garden has to pay, so Isiah gets off the hook.

    i know man thats not how its supposed to be. its so f#cked up. Its like a baby getting away with the same thing over and over again cuz the parents dont give 2 ****s. Stern really has to step in soon. He of all people should realize what one man is doing to a city of thousands.

    Yeah, Stern has to throw in extra ping pongs for us as a remedy for putting up with Isaiah.
