Isiah is a joke. Houston is class. He saved Isiah from making a tough decision. I wish Houston nothing but the best. Let's hope he doesn't go somewhere else and be successful because once again it would prove how incompetent Isiah really is.

As a die hard Knick fan, this team and in particular mgt. is an absolute joke.

Isiah is a racist,sexist,ignorant piece of garbage. It's amazing how an idiot like him can be in the position he holds. He was lucky he got what time he did with Houston.

I wish Allan Houston the best of luck. He really shows a lot of class. He's the best New York Knick basketball player ever!!!

i think houston left because after facing two division teams, houston knows this team is too immature to be a dominant force, maybe in 3-4 yrs---houston made the right move

Mr. Lil Nate Robinson is the man. He can dominate a game like no other. Allan Houston should watch films of Lil Nate for pointers. Nate is great!

Who cares the team is going no where. The media is just trying to keep this ***tty team in the news. Dolan must be Newsday's biggest subscriber they are both pathetic at playing and making decisions regarding good Basketball. What a shame the city has great basketball players but they go elsewhere.

Allan Houston has always been my favorite Knick once John Starks left. As much as I would have liked for him to make the Knicks roster, I would also like to see him win! That wont happen with this Knicks team. I hope he signs with a contender, wins a ring & shows Isiah Thomas what a mistake he made! Being a NY fan has been tough lately! First Joe Torre and now this.

It amazes me how many people read the garbage that gets printed in the papers and then goes on agreeing with it shouting it like it is gospel.

This Knick team isn't great, far from it. However, since Isiah has taken over the team has been completely gutted and rebuilt. The team today is no doubt better than what it was when Isiah took over. It is full of younger and fresher legs.

Marbury, while not the best point guard in the NBA, has to be in the top 10.

Curry, while still needing to play defense and get in good enough shape that he doesn't tire down towards the end of games, is still a complete beast offensively. He has been in the league awhile, but people forget that he skipped college. He would only be in the league a few years now if he went to college. He still has the potential to continue to grow as a player on both ends.

Crawford is another one that the media loves one day and the next they are saying he needs to get traded. The fans follow suit and repeat the same nonsense. Jamal is this team's John Starks, except that he is better offensively.

David Lee is a monster on the boards and seems to be able to find enough ways to score. His defense isn't great but I've seen him improve in his time in the NBA so far. Offensively and make up wise I'd compare him to Oakley. His defense is no where near though. He's yet another young player who has the potential to work hard and get better.

There are a handful more of young players that are on this roster now. The team went away from signing the aging, has beens with the intent of them being a championship team because of those has beens and relying on them to be the central focus of the team.
