geeeez! wasn't running the guy out of town enough?!!

At least 6 Isiah holdovers are on the team. 3 Lee, Nate and Gardner have started and played signicant minutes. Though only Gardner may be here past this season. Isiah made some bad choices (33 mil for C J James, then drafting PF Frye over C Bynum), the deal for chubby Curry,(no #1 in 2010)

It's not like he took a championship team and tore it down. That happened 30 years ago

His biggest mistake was staking his job on the performance of Marbury. He didn't kill anybody or shoot himself.. he deserves the chance to earn a living.. get over yourselves!

Classic case of another teams trash, is another teams treasure. By the way, King Kong Bondini, its Chandler not Gardener. And the Marbury trade caused us to lose the 2010 pick NOT the Curry trade.

Isiah Thomas is going to donate his 1st years salary to the FIU athletic department. How novel of him...

What he morally should do is donate half of all the monies (Duh Umm) Jimmy Dough Boy Dolan paid him for his less than stellar results with the Knicks...

Zeke the Snake is in the news. He slithers his way south, on a mission to destroy his next organization. Bye Bye! Hide the woman and children.

Kidds claim to fame is not being able to get out of the first round with players like K-Mart, Jefferson and Vince Carter. He also promoted the firing of Byron Scott in favor of Franks who never got past the first round, is a .500 coach at best but remains under the NY sports media radar. Now they keep promoting Kidd at 36, to run an offense where the PG needs to be able to hit an outside shot, something Kidd never could do with the game on the line. The team that started the season could be in the playoffs now. INstead they gutted the team in preparation for 2010. THis is now the Clippers, perenial lottery participants... sad

no crush just not blinded by the Walsh/D'ANton (patience) con game

they have NO shot at Lebron with a team 5+ years out the playoffs.... Lebron and Wade are the only FA's that make the team a contender immediately.

Nash, Kidd will all be in their mid-30's, if signed how exactly is THAT rebuilding for the future?!!

Considering our school's current budget crisis, this article makes me hate this guy slightly less.
