I don't just mean as a coach, since 2003, how much better are they?

If we're lucky, Marbury will never come back and Thomas will go with him. What a pair of losers!!

Here's how MSG describes Isiah on its website:

"Thomas’ prolific career has been defined by success at every level as both player and executive" (YEAH, RIGHT. HOW ABOUT FAILURE AT EVERY EXECUTIVE LEVEL, UNLESS OF COURSE "SUCCESS" MEANT BRINGING THE CIRCUS BACK TO THE GARDEN, HE'S DONE A WONDERFUL JOB AT THAT)

"His impact upon the Knicks has been swift and dramatic" (IT SURE HAS)

Thomas’ patience and ability to stick to his long-term plan, rebuilding the organization through a balance of youth, athleticism and experience, have re-energized the franchise (REALLY? THE ONLY THING LONG TERM ABOUT HIS PLAN IS THE FANS' SUFFERING)

Taking on the added role of head coach, he brings a singular philosophy - both short- and long-term - for returning the Knicks to elite status.(SO WHEN EXACTLY DOES HE PLAN TO IMPLEMENT THIS PHILOSOPHY BECAUSE WE SURE HAVEN'T SEEN IT YET)

<quoted text>Actually his drafts (Frye, Lee, Nate, Ariza) have been pretty good. It's the FA signings like JJ and Jefferies and trades for guys like Steve Francis that have been bad. But this is what I mean by fans that are just loud, obnoxious and have no clue other than 'we don't like Isiah and want every one to know it'. Kids are better seen and not heard...
You're in denial. Lay off Zeke's Kool Aid. He'll deservedly be fired before the year is out. And players who whine about NY pressure don't belong in NY.

Isiah's spinning his wheels. He's made like thirty trades since he's been here and the club is no better off than it was during the Layden years. Venom, you want to bet they go plus ten again and win 43 games this year? Didn't think so.

Send him to join al Queda. That bunch would implode in 6 months with Isiah Thomas on board

If the fans want Dolan to get rid of Isiah, they need to not go to a few games and let them play to an empty garden to get his attention

the only other person more out of touch with reality than Isiah Thomas is George Bush.

And both have a small amount of people (also livng in a fantasy land) who think each are doing a hell of job)

The Knicks need a head coach with a very high moral character as well as basketball savvy just to get back their own fan base [read revenue stream here] before they can even dream of winning a championship.This Anucha Sanders nonsense has cost them far more than 11.5mil.But leadership starts at the top and with Dolan jr. running the show don't bet it will happen soon.Sad............

Memo to Isiah:
Get some wins and have the Knicks play like a team instead of a bunch of "me" players , maybe the Garden Crowd can get behind you.

Isiah not out of touch with reality so much as being the master of excuses. He surrounds himself with yes-men, makes mistake after mistake, but finds ways to not take responsibility. Notice the statements he makes that start of with "I know in my heart". Last two were that he know "in his heart" that he was innocent of the sexual harassment charges and Knicks would have made the playoffs but for the injuries. Both were lies. Fortunately for him, he works for an idiot.
