Thomas' "you're trying to win as many games as you possibly can" is selfish. Those "wins" he hopes to have show on his W/L record. At this point it's useless to continue to play the same guys. They're not winning. They're not going to the playoffs! They might as well let these young guys get some time and experience. Bring in Colangelo.

Correct.

And nothing wrong with the Knicks that new ownership wouldn't fix.

This is exactly what I've been saying for a while now. The knicks don't draft well enough nor do they give they're young picks a chance to develop. This is embarrassing and pathetic. The ownership is a joke and constantly caves in to the prssure of NY fans by trying to buy a contender year after year. Good teams with good knowledgeable ownership and management constantly have good balance between developed draft picks and free agents. The knicks have no idea how to do that. This franchise is by far THE WORST in the NBA and in major spors in general. Idiotic fans keep chiming in that I'm not focusing on the good things their doing to turn it around. HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE! For crying out loud, they don't do anything right EVER! Free agents come in and free agents go, and the knicks still suck year after year. WOW, great plan ya got there, Dolans.

Thomas' idea of work: getting down on his knee, while James "ROCK & ROLL" Dolan whips his wener out, so I-say-haaa goes to work. This man, actually non of them have any shame. It's pisses me off that they have destroyed my beloved Knicks as much as they have.

You and every other cherry picker out there. Its so easy to criticize this franchise( thats why so many clowns do it).Dolan will not let Isaiha or any other GM rebuild! its that simple. You can call Isaiha an ahole,a bad coach,a rapist, whatever! Hes not a terrible GM and heres why. He walked into a pig sty in december 2003. He had a team with little talent and aging mediocre players and was asked to make the playoffs that spring he did
he acquired a nazi mohamed and tim thomas for a useless michael doleac and a keith van horn was not playing up to potential this turned out to be a bad move but it was a chance worth taking when being told to make the playoffs that same year. acquiring jamal crawford was not a bad move at all stole trevor ariza at the 43rd pic. NOW Isaiha if allowed (now summer 2004) now is when you begin to dump salaries and build through draft
by now all those young players would of been promising and developing. The team would of been bad for a couple of years but Dolan just wanted to continue making the play offs every single year and trading away draft picks for lumps of garbage like eddie curry.If you go three or four years with drafting guys like balkman,chandler and ariza and god forbid a couple of lottery picks. Isaiha is not the problem it's Dolan and by the way Marbury was a good move at the time that a lot of people would have made at the time but just turned out to be a mistake. Jared Jefferies and Jerome James same thing just did not work out. NOW try something challenging like defending this team

i mean, that is just unbelievable, but so completely believable.
what is it going to take to open a window and air this place out? i understand how people in the league say its going to take at least 3 years... if they can even make the right hire.

90 - Jerrod Mustaf
91 - Greg Anthony
92 - Hubert Davis
94 - Monty Williams
94 - Charlie Ward
96 - John Wallace
96 - Walter McCarty
96 - Dontae Jones
97 - John Thomas
99 - Frédéric Weis (He's the guy who has Vince Carter's cro-tch imprinted on his face)
02 - Frank Williams
03 - Michael Sweetney
05 - Channing Frye
05 - David Lee
05 - Nate Robinson

Note: Other than the 2004 Pistons, no NBA team has won a NBA championship without at least one NBA Player it drafted that ended up in the All-Star game the year they won (going back until 1980). Drafts matter!

Your a f-ucking moron. "Marbury was a good move at the time but just turned out to be a mistake".
What kind of stupid a-ss contradictory statement is that. So it was good at the time? Really, why? What has Marbury done. What did he do when it was considered a good move? It was a terrible f-ucking move, and that's why no other team wanted his a-ss. He hasn't done jack for any team he's been on except cause problems. This was the signature move of a bunch of upcoming and similar terrible moves. Get a f-ucking clue you dumb a-ss. It doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure out this whole team, from ownership to GM and coach down to the players. If Isiah was any kind of GM/coach he would have dumped all these losers for any draft picks they could get. At least there would be an upside. I'd rather see a bunch of hungry and fresh new draft picks instead of this pack of overpaid and lazy losers. This team currently has enough talent on paper to be right in the thick of the playoff race, but where are they. Year after year, same ol story. That's why the analysts on ESPN and the NBA Tonight, say the Knicks are the biggest embarrassment in sports. There is no way to defend it. Only morons like you TRY to defend it, but in the end the organization speaks for itself. Why is it that the Bulls, who sank to the bottom of the league shortly after their championship team was dismantled, have got a team back in contention before the Knicks could even win one title. Every other team seems to get their act together and start contending after a few years of struggling. Meanwhile the Knicks keep struggling, year after pathetic year. Defend that A-S-SHOLE!

Ok so Thomas says they got off to a bad start and so he could not play the young guys- So he rewards the mutts who are losing by continuing to play them- and keep the young guys on the bench- Simply another contradiction from the second biggest laair on the NY spors scene- Any guesses on who is #1? Hint his wife has bus tire marks on her.

Throw out everything that has to do will this regieme. Get rid of Dolan, Mills, Isiah and every player. Start from absolute scratch and within 5 years the Knicks will be a force to be reckoned with again.
