Isiah Thomas

  1. Amar'e Stoudemire: I never even spoke with Isiah Thomas

    Aug 20, 2010, 10:26 AM EDT

    At the press conference announcing the New York Knicks had fulfilled all their summer basketball aspirations by signing Amar’e Stoudemire (what, you thought they had other goals?) everyone kissed Isiah Thomas’ ring. On the orders of owner James Dolan, team president Donnie Walsh and others thanked Thomas for his role in bringing Amar’e to New…

  2. Sorry Knicks fans, but the Isiah Thomas saga may have another chapter

    Aug 15, 2010, 1:32 PM EDT

    It’s the questions most often asked around the New York Knicks saga: Why in the world would the Knicks even consider bringing Isiah Thomas back? Are they dropping acid like it’s 1968 in the Knicks offices? Bringing him back makes no sense if you’re thinking like a basketball executive. It makes no sense if you’re…

  3. Isiah Thomas doesn't work for the Knicks, but they still keep him off the radio

    Aug 13, 2010, 8:15 AM EDT

    Wednesday Isiah Thomas pulled out of his consulting contract with the Knicks, what with the whole “it violates league policy” thing. Thursday, Thomas was set and had been promoted to appear on 1050 ESPN Radio in New York, doing a couple hours in studio and taking calls. But that went about as well as the…

  4. Isiah Thomas will not take Knicks job. We all shed a single tear.

    Aug 11, 2010, 7:19 PM EDT

    Knicks fans can put away pitchforks and torches, no reason to storm the castle anymore. Isiah Thomas will not be part of the New York Knicks front office, walking away from the role offered as a consultant while maintaining his job as head coach of Florida International University. NBA Commissioner David Stern made the official…

  5. Coach K says he'll pass on an Isiah Thomas-like consultant job

    Aug 11, 2010, 9:29 AM EDT

    Only one person’s opinion on the current college coach Isiah Thomas’ consulting contract with the Knicks really matters — David Stern. However, even if Stern and the NBA lawyers do say that the contract is legal, don’t expect Mike Krzyzewski to jump on that bandwagon, as he told the Associated Press. “I would decline to…

  6. Isiah Thomas takes part in ad campaign opposing gay marriage ban in California

    Aug 10, 2010, 2:20 PM EDT

    Isiah Thomas wasn’t making enough headlines, so he has jumped into the gay marriage debate in California. Thomas appears in a photo as part of the NOH8, a campaign against the gay marriage ban in California. Like everyone in the photographic campaign — from the famous to folks on the street who support the cause…

  7. Knicks deadline to keep Donnie Walsh: April Fools' Day (Knicks jokes write themselves)

    Aug 9, 2010, 10:02 PM EDT

    By April Fools’ Day next year, Knicks owner James Dolan needs to decide if he wants to keep Donnie Walsh or jettison him and go with someone else. Like some sort of consultant who has experience as a general manager. If he can find anyone like that around the organization. Sadly, none of this is…

  8. Isiah Thomas speaks, and it's all good

    Aug 9, 2010, 3:07 PM EDT

    Go ahead and scoff. Laugh if you must. Isiah Thomas doesn’t care. He spoke to Dan LeBatard on 790 the Ticket in Miami and sounded like a guy who had learned from decades of being interviewed how to say the right things. How he and everyone in the Knicks front office are all chums, for…

  9. NBA owners complaining about Isiah Thomas deal, but NBA may approve

    Aug 9, 2010, 8:53 AM EDT

    One of the NBA rules guiding its executives — nobody can have contact with a college underclassman. Another put in with the age-limit requirement is that nobody from an NBA front office can scout high school players. Isiah Thomas’ new deal has him both as a full-time college coach at Florida International University (where he…

  10. Report: Donnie Walsh nearly walked out after Thomas hiring

    Aug 8, 2010, 8:36 AM EDT

    Isiah Thomas is a polarizing figure in sports management. Some people think he’s the worst manager in the history of the NBA, while others think he’s the worst manager in the history of all sports, ever, in the history of the universe. And from a report this morning, Donnie Walsh is similarly wrapped up in…

  11. The one thing Isiah Thomas was good at, he wasn't really good at

    Aug 7, 2010, 2:00 PM EDT

    With Isiah Thomas back in the Knickerbocker fold, his legacy is being re-examined. And as is natural, there’s a counter-movement to the sweeping flood of “What in God’s name are the Knicks thinking?” cries. There are those saying that Isiah’s terrible run with the Knicks is overstated by the media and exaggerated when discussed in…

  12. Knicks are bringing back Isiah Thomas as a consultant. No, it is not April 1.

    Aug 6, 2010, 3:44 PM EDT

    UPDATE 3:44 pm: The NBA is officially looking into this deal — where a college head coach consults with an NBA team and is considered a player “recruiter” — to see if it violates league rules. Those league rules include that a team representative cannot have contact with college underclassmen. Which is essentially the core…

  13. New York's Isiah Thomas Redux nightmare is over

    Jul 24, 2010, 1:30 PM EDT

    After Donnie Walsh tapped him to make their final pitch to LeBron James (that went well), there were discussions that the Knicks were looking at Isiah Thomas to fill their GM position. Subsequently, Knicks fans began experiencing a range of symptoms, including nausea, vomiting, vertigo, and an uncontrollable urge to destroy everything in their path.…

  14. How desperate are the Knicks to get LeBron? Isiah Thomas made their final pitch.

    Jul 8, 2010, 6:37 PM EDT

    There’s a long list of things that were just never going to work but got tried anyway. Napoleon invading Russia. Cop Rock. Lindsay Lohan and acting lessons. Isiah Thomas selling New York to LeBron James. Yes, that last one really happened. We’re not so sure about Lohan and acting lessons. When the Knicks needed to…

  15. Isiah Thomas would like to tell you his thoughts on LeBron. Tell us, Isiah!

    Jun 30, 2010, 12:16 AM EDT

    Whichever team loses out on this summer’s free agency will be devastated. Their franchise will be in ruins, and it may take years to recover, to attain the same level of success they held before Thursday morning at 12AM. And you know what? It will still pale in comparison to the abject destruction left in…
