    But it's his image in general. When you think of Isiah Thomas you think of the destruction of a franchise. His name is tarnished.

    Donnie is a proven winner. I'm sure he will be able to chalk up a deal and do a good deal of schmoozing, the ladder of which is basically what Isiah's potential job would be.

    Walsh has executed his job very very well to this point and does not need Isiah's dirty hands touching his product. I understand the eye for talent. I understand the relationships he has. But Isiah Thomas logic defies my logic and your logic. The risk is far greater than the reward.

    Update 4:54

    Kay says a source said that had Isiah been part of the discussions Lebron likely would have chosen NY. Also, Isiah isn’t being considered as GM because of PR hit.

    No joke- inside source telling us that Isiah Thomas flew into Ocean City, NJ airport today & met w/ highest levels of Knicks management.





    So Michael Kay has jumped on the Isiah stuff and here’s what we know. Dell Demps was given a significant promotion by Isiah Thomas in 2004. What I don’t understand is how he can broker any deal here. Demps answers to ownership. The Knicks, with or without Isiah, can propose a pretty strong offer. I understand the relationship with the owner, what I don’t understand is this need for Isiah because of his relationship the younger generation of players. Stephen A. Smith, and now Michael Kay, have both now stated that the thought is Zeke has “influence over the young African American players” in today’s NBA.

    Kay said Paul has modeled his game after Isiah. CP3 was literally 3 Isiah was winning rings. And there is no evidence that Paul has ever said he wanted to be Isiah 2.0, actually 3.0 after Marbury, anywhere.

    Essentially somewhere, someone is trying to re-establish Isiah as a “power broker” or is trying to make Isiah look good for helping the Knicks specifically with Amar’e.

    It’s pretty clear, to me, that person is none other than the owner.
    I want Isiah gone and even to hear his name in GM rumors makes me sick to my stomach.

    If he becomes the next GM, Ill prob stop watching the Knicks.

    If he stays as a recruiter/scout Ill be fine with that. IF Dolan wants his boyfriend by his side then do it behind the scenes.

    And if Isiah really convinces players to come here, then let him try out his charm.

    It is amazing that thomas' name is still being dropped. I swear, he must have something on Dolan . . . like incriminating photos of Dolan with a teen girl in his wallet?

    Dolan having any faith in this guy is extremely troubling to me.

    I just can't believe our owner is this retarded!! ***K!!

    Phew! I think Hahn is saying that this whole entire fiasco (IT returning) is nothing more than an adolescent attempt from Thomas to worm his way back into the picture. He's leaking these stories. Simple as that. They have no merit.

    Like Iago.... Thomas is trying to undermine Walsh in some way, to get back into the game- and rewrite history now that NYK has potential & cap freedom.

    He probably sees a weakened Walsh, and is trying to go for the kill. Dispicable!

    I'm with y'all. If he does return.... EVER.... in any position other than scout, advisor, friend of Dolan.... than I am outta here.
