I’ve had my fair share of fun with the Knicks lately, publicly hoping for Stephon to spill the beans on Isiah. While I might not get that wish, it looks like it really won’t matter. Isiah is struggling so badly to maintain control of the Knicks, that he might not even be around for much longer. Case in point, he kicked his entire team out of practice Monday. Yeah. Coaching 101 at its finest. From the NY Daily News:
A desperate Isiah Thomas kicked his entire team out of practice Monday. The Knicks’ embattled coach was unhappy with their work habits.
The move comes on the heels of a six-game losing streak and amid increasing speculation that Thomas is on the verge of being fired.
“It is a three-ring circus,” said the source. “It’s getting worse.”
So how’s that contract extension for Isiah looking now? Wasn’t this a team that was supposed to be heading back in the right direction? Didn’t they supposedly leave all their tough times and crappy records behind? Yeah, so much for that. As for Isiah, the Knicks are 6-22 since he received his contract extension in March. Now I must ask you the question: is there another franchise in professional sports that’s a bigger mess than this one? If so, please pass it along, because I’m dying to know what could be worse. (and I’m a Bengals fan, too)
