Please, unless you are already under a long-term deal, going to the Knicks is the best thing that can happen to a player. First of all - the best part - you will get a fat contract that far exceeds market value. See Jerome James, Eddy Curry, Jamal Jeffries (under Thomas), and Eisley, Ward, Childs, Houston, Weatherspoon, and so much more (under Layden). Second, there is no accountability from the owner, GM or coach. Dolan only cares if you show him up (Sprewell) or speak out against the team or organization. Playing lousy and uninspired never offends him. In fact, if you dog it - the way players did under Larry Brown - the coach will become frustrated and lash out to the media (another Dolan no-no). Then, you go to Dolan/Thomas and collectively demand the coach's dismissal. See ya, coach. And the best part about this is that your GM is also the coach, so no matter how badly you perform, the coach (Thomas) can't put the hammer down, lest Dolan gets the impression that things aren't peachy. Third, the arena is always sold out, reassuring the owner that all is well, and, once again, that pesky accountability thing can be ignored. Fourth, it's New York City, where any NBA player has access to the greatest buffet of off-the-court "activities". It's clear that under Dolan, being a Knick means being a member of the most exclusive country club in existence - not too many players have a problem with that.

I told all you optimists during pre season. This is a terribly managed team. I'll repeat it one more time. As long as Dolon and Thomas (The Weasel) are associated with this team in any capacity they will always be losers. Marbury stinks but for the time being he is thankfully gone. So what is Isiah's excuse now. This mess is a reflection of himself.
