Don't usually want to jump to conclusions, but as it's been said the PG sets the tone. When the tone set is one of hustling, passsing the ball and playing defense, the team responds. Other than putting a gun to someones head all Isiah can do is talk and hope it sinks in.

Players have guranteed money coaches don't. If the player doesn't by in to what the coach wants, the coach goes before the players do (see Byron Scott dealings with J-Kidd in Jersey). Kidd wanted Franks and Ed Jordan and Scott are elsewhere. No one has labeled Kidd a coach killer.... yet.

Hopefully Isiah's words of playing for the front of the Jersey rather than the back sinks in. we'll see.

You have to admit, they look good when they play the right way..

THIS JUST IN: Impressed with last night's win, James Dolan gave Isiah Thomas another extension.

Isiah Thomas is a genius and New York basketball fans are something unprintable. When this team starts to win consistently, these same pink-slip morons will be talking
about how they love Zeke. And that he "is a true Yankee," whatever the hell that means, or ever meant.

hey dumb shit is it jason kidds fault that Vince misses open threes?
is it steve nashs fault amare misses open shots? so dont blame marbury that eddy, jamal, Q-rich and Zack miss open shots he gets them open shots and if they hit those shots everybody would probably credit and apprecatie Marbury more and thank him for the effort, i just think guys like jason kidd and steve nash are good but the reason their teams are doing good is the fact that the players around them have a made a conscious effort to play better with or without them actually on the court and they get the credit for it

true the PG gets more credit for wins and losses but when he walks off the team because he won't start there is nothing to justify that example ...

Isiah Thomas fired Lenny Wilken's good friend and assistant coach for 5 diff. NBA teams and 40 yrs. coaching experience, D. Helm; after the 04'-05' team started off 0-2. Ater only 2 games Isiah went around and over Hall of famer Lenny Wilkens and fired his top assistant; breaking many an unwritteen coaching rule..........Now Isiah at 10-19 against some very weak teams, wants another two weeks to answer any coaching related questions because it wouldn't be "fair" to answer any sooner. Class Act! Nice going Steve Mills and Jim Dolan!
