Knicks Fire Isiah, Keep Him for ‘Advice’

The New York Knicks made their first smart move since Patrick Ewing left, firing one of the worst coaches and especially one of the worst GM’s of all time in Isiah Thomas.

New Knicks president Donnie Walsh seems excited about replacing Isiah:

“If I could get the coach I wanted right away, then that would be great, but if it’s going to take time, then I have to give it that time. I know this: That by getting to this by today, Friday, we still have a good selection of people that are available out there. I will get calls. This is a coveted job, and people will want to coach here. So I’m going to get calls.”

My thoughts: What took so long? How could Isiah keep the job for so long while the Knicks continued to rot into the doldrums of the NBA’s cellar. He was a terrible GM and arguably a worse coach. He also cost the Knicks and Madison Square Garden more than 50 million dollars in the Anucha Brown-Sanders sexual harassment case. I think he must be the nicest guy behind closed doors, or he has a lot of money to be allowed to stick around for “advice” after his disastrous tenure. What else could be the appeal of having Isiah Thomas around?
