    Default Predictions about today

    So Donnie and Isiah meet today to discuss his future or lack there of, what does everyone think the outcome will be?

    My Prediction: Isiah stays on for now, and Donnie will make a comment about re-examining the situation during the off season. Although I read in the Post today, that out of respect for his tribute in Detroit last night Donnie put off removing him from the bench before then, so that is why the meeting is set for the next game after that. There is some logic to that thinking, but I just don't see it happening. But we'll see......

    I dont see no place in this Knick organization for Isiah Thomas the day after the 2008 draft.
    And I'm very skeptical about his trades on draft night (Q.Richardson & Zach Randolph).
    The Portland Trailblazers and the Orlando Magic organizations both showed Isiah that his young player Trevor Ariza was worth more than Penny & Francis put together, and Channing Frye was worth more than Francis & Zach put together. Francis & Penny never seen any playingtime on the teams Isiah traded them to. Why?

    Nate Robinson was the Jewel of the Q.Richardson for Kurt Thomas Trade.
    David Lee was the Jewel of the Malik Rose for Nazr trade.
    Demetris Nichols was the Jewel of the Zach & Jones for Francis & Frye Trade.

    Isiah Thomas have to go along with 90% of his coaching staff whom never stand up for the better players on the Knicks.

    unfortunately I think Walsh will be keeping him in as coach. The NY organization have a short memory, and forgive easily. Because of the first three game winning streak (pointless) this season, I think Dolan will forgive, and Walsh will be stupid, and rehire Isiah Thomas. Something people dont think about, which I know there might be a controversal topic, is bribe the draft for the 1st pick, I actually think it happened before in history but not the Knicks, just overall. Now the Knicks are in the 6th spot....

    Sources said their was no meeting held between Walsh & Isiah on April 9th.
    That was the start of one bad point added to Walsh tour as Knick President.
    Sources says that Walsh will wait untill the ending of this season to hold interviews. That's the sign of a Procrastinator.
    I think it would've been wise to hold interviews as soon as hired, especially during the season to find out where peoples head is at.
    Then hold a second interview when the regular season end just to find out how dedicated each employee is to the organization when asked a simple question about their offseason plans with their family.
    The truth is all the people whom work for this Knick organization does not deserve a vacation this offseason, some should be made to work 6 days a week throughout the entire offseason. The Knicks 4 year record speaks for itself.

    Donnie Walsh is already starting out to be a PUTTS on this Knick job.
    This Knick organization has a strong fan base where advertisement is not the problem.
    Winning games is the problem.
    If Donnie Walsh was hired to get this organization prepared to WIN a certain percentage of games next season then we all know that has become a 24/7 job from now untill the first game of the 2008-9 season.
    Why put off a job you can do today untill tommorow, when nobody was promised tommorow. Procrastinating is something we got from Isiah Thomas for five consecutive seasons.

    Coach Isiah Thomas so-call three game winning streak of beating a team that is holy indebted to him for taking Francis contract from them which does not end untill next season, and beating his best friend Dumars team, then beating a poor Charlotte team in MSG, whom have to look in the history books for the last time they won a road game because their head coach and coaching staff is dummer than Isiah and his coaching staff.

    April 9th, two teams Tanking games (Knicks vs Bobcats) for another young player out of the draft when their inferior coaching staff has done nothing to improve any of the young drafted players they have on their roster for the last four seasons.
    It was a big JOKE watching the 4th quarter of this game.
    Isiah tried his best to give the fourth quarter to the Charllote Bobcats last night whom refuse to take advantage of it with their Bigman Okafor.
    Isiah 4th qtr. lineup was the players he benched all season (except Jones) PG-Nate, SG-Collins, SF-Jones, PF-Chandler, and C-Balkman.
    And President Donnie Walsh was at the game watching such foolishness, when he could've had Herb Williams coach this game while he and Isiah had their meeting about this 20 WIN season team (Procrastinating Walsh)...

    I don't think he is procastinating, I think he wants to show Isiah respect. He knows Isiah is not the right fit for this team. Walsh wont look at this 3 game win streak and assume that means anything, after all he fired Isiah after a playoff run! So three games in a row (two of which the nearly blew big leads) won't be the deciding factor. Give Donnie Walsh more credit that that, if he was going to be another "Dolan Dummy" he wouldnt have constructed his contract to put him above Steve Mills, and he wouldnt have changed the media policy. Isiah will be fired, and he knows it. Probably around the same time Larry Brown was fired, like a week before the draft.

    You have the media giving Donnie Walsh 3 to 4 years to clean up this Knick Team, with Knick-Fans accepting such time, untill the middle of next season.

    The media also gave Isiah Thomas 3 to 4 years when he inhereted a defensive team that was going to the playoff, plus 5 ending contracts players in Isiah first season on the job. Procrastinating and bad decisions got Isiah an extension.
    Is this Walsh goal too?

    Donnie Walsh answer to the majority of questions giving to him by the media during his first interview of accepting this Knick position were, " I have to have a meeting with all the people in this organization to find out where it stands." He also said, "I can not make any moves without knowing more about the organization and how its been run, you have quality people here that could fit in certain positions.".
    Since that speech Donnie Walsh have not been in N.Y. to interview or have a meeting with anyone. He was to late for the Isiah meeting so he made it his business to sit through a game at MSG.

    N.N.Y, if you look at it like that, your stating that when Walsh took the job as President the Knicks record was the 4th losing team in the league, so Walsh figured let Isiah finish the season as a losing coach to get the Knicks as many Lottery Ping-Pong balls as possible. But.... Isiah cant even do that right. 3 straight WINS!
    Isiah cant WIN in the regular season or Tank the season in the last 6 games.
    What is Isiah good for?
    For every one step foward Isiah make picking a decent draft pick, he makes three steps backwards with his trades or MLE signings.

    Walsh need to "Be a Man" and ...... Fire Isiah!
    If the shoes was on Isiah feet Walsh would've been another one of Isiah (statistics or) embarrassing Firing, like Isiah did to coach Brown, Wilkins, and Chaney.

    Donnie Walsh procrastinating in Firing Isiah, shows he had nothing to do with the Indiana Pacers Firing coach Isiah.
    I dont want a old chump like Donnie Walsh to be President of the Knicks, I just want Zeke Isiah Thomas FIRED!
    Fire Isiah!
    Fire Isiah!
    Fire Isiah!
