Why in the story about the game are we reading 4 paragraphs about Isaiah's trial? IT'S OVER!!! Can we please read about the game? How did Nate play, Jones, David Lee...we get the worst coverage of our team...if other fans feel like they are tired of hearing about the drama and want to read about basketball please let these journalist know....Thanks

Did anyone catch the scrolling billboard at center court displaying, "The Prime Grill Salutes Isreal?" They mispelled Israel! That's an insult -- not a salute! I'd call up The Prime Grill and "grill" them for it -- maybe you'll get a free meal out of it...or at least you can try.

The Knicks must center their offense around Lil Nate Robinson.

well lets just hope whoever was responsible for that wasn't a woman cause if she gets fired there goes another law suit. I know that sexual harrassment goes on frequently in the work place, but this case was BS.

just don't think who was booed and how many times is News or needs to be in a game recap. Their trying to dictate to KNick fans what is important. Well they're wrong
It was good game and shown MSG. Crawford looked bigger and stronger and Zach looked good. The Younger writers keep trying to find a reporting angle besides the game played... BTW it was acknowledged that the game was NOT part of the Season ticket plans. All tickets sold were for charity so the fans in attandance were NOT the MSG regulars. So what point was to made by saying Isiah was booed?

October 12, 2007 -- It was a great night for Isiah Thomas. Thomas' Knicks got an easy 112-85 victory over Maccabi Tel Aviv in their preseason home opener and the Garden fans spared him from any wrath.

Making his first appearance on the Knicks' bench since being found guilty of sexual harassment, Thomas largely was ignored because most of the patrons squeezing into the Garden last night carried Israeli flags, not "Fire Isiah" signs.

They were a lot more interested in cheering for their heroes from Israel than the Knicks, as chants of "Tel A Viv." rocked the Garden when Maccabi burst to a 15-5 lead.

It was a sur real scene, with each Maccabi Tel Aviv basket re ceiving massive roars while Knick buckets were met with in silence. During introdcution, Thomas received light booing.

"I don't think any of us received a warm reaction tonight," Thomas said. " Whatever reaction that happens to me, I'm a big boy. I know how to handle myself."

How long will Thomas believe the verdict is not in regarding the sexual harassment case? Appeal will still be against him. However optimistic he's still an idiot.

Well uhhh .... whoever thought the game was ever going to be stopped so Isiah Thomas would come to mid-court to accept an Attaboy Award ?
As the season moves along, he'll hear a buttload of chants from the crowd and he'll deny it was ever a distraction to the team he coaches. There's always the backing of Rev. Al Sharpton on his side...
