  1. Report: Knicks owner promises he won’t rehire Isiah Thomas

    May 5, 2011, 1:36 PM EDT

    Isaih Thomas Introduced as New Knicks GM

    If at one time a statement can be no-brainer true and completely moot, this next sentence is it: Knicks owner James Dolan has promised team president Donnie Walsh he will not rehire Isiah Thomas to work for the Knicks, according to the New York Post. The report says that Dolan has become disillusioned with Thomas…

  2. Could Donnie Walsh return to Knicks if he wants to?

    Maybe, for once, it’s not James Dolan screwing up the Knicks. We’re not sold on that — we will assume he is until proven otherwise, remember Dolan pushed to make sure the Carmelo Anthony deal happened no matter how many players went West — but maybe not everything is his fault. Maybe team President Donnie…

  3. Isiah Thomas doesn’t deny he helped get ‘Melo to New York

    It’s never easy to tell reality with Isiah Thomas. With him, the truth is messy and convoluted. You want to make it simple — “he was a terrible GM” — but reality is more complex (he made some very good draft picks and showed an eye for spotting talent out of college). So it is…

  4. Is Chris Paul becoming more John Stockton than Isiah Thomas?

    Mar 4, 2011, 8:12 AM EDT

    The Taco Bell Skills Challenge

    Chris Paul insists he’s healthy. He says his knee isn’t bothering him. But if you watched him in December and you watched him in March, you’re going to have a hard time buying it. The question is — will Paul ever be right? I mean right like he was three seasons ago? Maybe it doesn’t…

  5. Carmelo is in New York! (And Dolan wants you to know Isiah is not)

    Feb 23, 2011, 6:36 PM EDT

    Carmelo Anthony James Dolan

    New York is buzzing over Carmelo Anthony. Like first date with Minka Kelly kind of buzzing. They are over-the-top giddy and can’t believe they landed this. Anthony himself is trying to play it cool while still getting the lay of the land in what can be the unpredictable world of the New York Knicks. Like…

  6. The Knickerbocker Empire got its prize in Melo, but the real battle begins now

    Feb 22, 2011, 2:45 PM EDT

    Isaih Thomas Introduced as New Knicks GM

    Congratulations, Mr. Dolan! You’ve landed your prize! You have two, count ‘em two, stars to fill the seats in Madison Square Garden. Carmelo Anthony joins Amar’e Stoudemire for the Knicks and the star power is through the roof now in New York. You have successfully acquired a second NBA All-Star, which is difficult to do…

  7. Knicks issue statement clearly about Isiah Thomas (that nobody believes)

    Feb 20, 2011, 2:24 PM EDT

    The Beacon Theater Joins MSG Entertainment

    We’ve told you about Isiah Thomas’ influence in efforts to bring Carmelo Anthony to the Knicks. The specter of a return of Thomas — just after the team spent two years climbing out of a hole Thomas dug for the organization — was enough to push the Knicks to release a rare joint statement to…

  8. Isiah Thomas does not deny he is consulting with Knicks

    Feb 16, 2011, 4:19 PM EDT

    Image (1) ithomas_noh8-thumb-250x250-17886.jpg for post 3594

    This post will help you understand why, during the press conference introducing Carmelo Anthony as a Knick next week, you will hear Donnie Walsh thank Isiah Thomas through gritted teeth. Thomas was on sports talk radio in Miami Tuesday night and, amazingly, there was little talk about FIU basketball and a lot about the Knicks.…

  9. David Stern is trying to make sure Knicks keep Donnie Walsh

    Feb 9, 2011, 1:21 PM EDT

    Houston Rockets v Los Angeles Lakers

    Three years ago, it was NBA Commissioner David Stern who helped guide Donnie Walsh to the New York Knicks. The franchise needed a stable… no, it needed a sane hand at the helm. Walsh hasn’t been perfect, but he has changed the direction of the franchise. He got the payroll under control, started building with…

  10. Warkentien’s new contract with Knicks ends July 1

    Feb 7, 2011, 5:11 PM EDT

    Mark Walkenstein

    And we thought the hiring of Mark Warkentien director of pro personnel was a sign of stability coming to the New York Knicks. Silly us. We should know better. Warkentien’s contract ends July 1, according to Frank Isola at the New York Daily News. If you’re paranoid — and if you live in New York…

  11. Walsh gets a win, Knicks hire former Nugget GM Warkentien

    Feb 5, 2011, 12:21 PM EDT

    Mark Walkenstein

    In a week where he needed one, Knicks president of basketball operations Donnie Walsh got a win. The Knicks have hired former Nuggets GM Mark Warkentien as their director of pro personnel, the team announced Saturday. Since he was expected to be hired as a consultant so this is a much more entrenched position within…

  12. Isiah Thomas still looms over the Knicks. Not figuratively, either.

    Feb 4, 2011, 9:58 AM EDT

    New York Knicks v New Jersey Nets

    Not only does Knicks GM Donnie Walsh not have his contract extension picked up in spite of the team’s turn around on the court (and in payroll), but Walsh hasn’t even really talked about the situation with James Dolan, the Knicks owner. The two haven’t talked about the team, its resurgence or a contract. Nothing.…

  13. NBA fines Knicks $200,000 for illegal workouts

    Feb 3, 2011, 2:42 PM EDT

    Image (1) Knicks_logo-thumb-250x201-14341.gif for post 6220

    An NBA investigation concluded that some New York Knicks staffers had been conducting illegal workouts with potential draft picks and fined the team $200,000, according to the New York Times. Rodney Heard, the scout in question, has been fined $20,000. While that’s a fairly steep fine the Knicks did not lose any draft picks, which…

  14. Donnie Walsh isn’t worried about Donnie Walsh’s future

    Feb 3, 2011, 2:15 PM EDT

    The Beacon Theater Joins MSG Entertainment

    Some time before May 1 — so three months from now — New York Knicks owner James Dolan has to pick up (or not) the contract for Knicks GM Donnie Walsh for next year. Because Dolan never speaks to the media (not in four years) and because his decisions in the past have not all…

  15. Will the Knicks pick up Donnie Walsh’s contract? And how is this even a question?

    Feb 1, 2011, 11:55 AM EDT

    Image (1) donnie_walsh-thumb-250x250-21082.jpg for post 6239

    Pat Riley will probably win it. I can see that. But Donnie Walsh of the Knicks deserves to be NBA Executive of the Year. In three seasons Walsh has taken a team drowning in big contracts for bad players and has turned them into something respectable. The Knicks are not contenders, but they are pretty…

  16. It’s Monday, time for Isiah Thomas to put his foot in his mouth

    Nov 22, 2010, 3:34 PM EDT

    Image (1) iThomas-FIU-thumb-250x299-17794.jpg for post 3574

    Isiah Thomas is living proof of the power of cognitive dissonance. The latest in a long line of examples comes from an interview with the Chicago Sun Times and discussion of the sexual harassment charges leveled against him and Madison Square Garden while he was running the Knicks. The one paragraph rundown is Anucha Browne…

  17. NBA office may answer New Yorkers’ prayers, keep Isiah Thomas away from Knicks

    Nov 8, 2010, 10:57 PM EDT

    Image (1) iThomas-FIU-thumb-250x299-17794.jpg for post 3574

    The NBA has formally begun its investigation into the alleged improper pre-draft workouts conducted by the New York Knicks. One possible upshot of this: Isiah Thomas could be suspended — in practice banned — from the Knicks. Oh, there would be dancing in the streets the likes of which has not been seen since Mick…

  18. Isiah dreams of coming back to the Knicks, says he could have signed LeBron

    Nov 5, 2010, 2:51 AM EDT

    Image (1) ithomas-thumb-250x140-15464.jpg for post 3017

    Isiah Thomas may have been spurned by the Knicks, but he is not over her. He wants another shot at the relationship. We kind of knew that, but he misses her more than we thought. And like anyone spurned and wanting back in a relationship, he is a little bit delusional about what really happened.…

  19. Isiah Thomas to the Heat: embrace the hate

    Nov 3, 2010, 6:24 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v Boston Celtics

    Hating the Miami Heat has almost become the biggest bandwagon of the NBA season. Not that there isn’t some real venom for the Heat — and LeBron James in particular, but it seems more trendy than genuine for many. Still, it’s out there. And if the Heat want the advice of former Detroit Bad Boy…

  20. Knicks had already benched scout who allegedly conducted improper workouts

    Oct 29, 2010, 9:59 AM EDT

    Image (1) donnie_walsh-thumb-250x250-21082.jpg for post 6239

    One month before a report surfaced saying a Knicks scout had been conducting improper pre-draft workouts, the team had already cut back his role. And, as always with the Knicks, it comes back to Isiah Thomas, according to Frank Isola of the New York Daily News. However, a Knicks source contends that Walsh decided to…

  21. Wilson Chandler denies improper workouts, League investigating Knicks anyway

    Oct 27, 2010, 4:14 PM EDT

    WChandler_Hinrich

    In the wake of a report yesterday claiming a Knicks scout has conducted improper predraft workouts for several years, the league is now investigating the situation. That’s not a surprise, but the New York Post has confirmed it. Meanwhile, Wilson Chandler — one of the players the Knicks allegedly worked out improperly back in 2007,…

  22. Report: Knicks violated league rules with improper pre-draft workouts

    Oct 26, 2010, 3:00 PM EDT

    Image (1) Knicks_logo-thumb-250x201-14341.gif for post 6220

    The Knicks have tried desperately to escape their recent past, but it comes back to haunt them again and again. The latest — a Knicks scout and confidant of Isiah Thomas has run improper pre-draft workouts for the past four years, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo. Knicks director of East Coast scouting Rodney Heard…

  23. Mock the Knicks for losing if you want, but not about their payroll

    Oct 26, 2010, 11:31 AM EDT

    Stoudemire_knicks

    The Knicks will probably win more than the 23 games they did two seasons ago in the last of the Isiah Thomas years. We’re predicting 38 wins this season, although we are admittedly an optimistic lot (just to balance out native New Yorkers). Whatever happens, the Knicks likely will lose more games than they win.…

  24. David Stern takes blame for Knicks summer Isiah Thomas blunder

    Oct 7, 2010, 7:31 PM EDT

    Image (1) davidstern-ap-thumb-250x315-5594.jpg for post 89

    The Knicks mistake this summer in trying to bring back Isiah Thomas as a consultant was really two mistakes in one. NBA Commissioner David Stern admitted he caused one of them. You remember the incident this summer, right? The Knicks ownership — over the head of GM Donnie Walsh who almost quit over it —…

  25. Isiah Thomas defends LeBron's right to choose, but says he should have chosen New York

    Sep 5, 2010, 10:13 AM EDT

    Like all of New York it seems, Isiah Thomas has been hanging out in Queens the last week or so. The US Open is in town and Roger Federer is putting on a show. (So did Andy Roddick, but that’s another story all together.) NBA writer Marc Berman of the New York Post approached Thomas…
