Frank Isola vs. the Knicks

    Deadspin talks to the NYDN Knicks beat writer who, IMO, is the victim of a feud against him by the Knicks. Interested to hear takes.


    Oh, and yeah, we've pretty all known one PR/SID in our lives that liked being a thorn in our (or everyone's) side.

    As someone working in NYC, I see this less as a vendetta against a certain guy (Isola in this case) and more a symptom of how most of the teams in the New York metro area operate. I haven't been in every locker room, but I can say that dealing with a team that is based less than 30 miles from Times Square means a great deal more frustration (on my part) and condescension (on their part) than any other team in any other market.

    Thank goodness the author logged the model of Isola's car and what songs were playing.

    Frank, who I jokingly call The Italian Stallion, is a good guy and an even better person. He's a hard worker and this is very disheartening to hear.

    It means exactly what it says.

    Muddled is as muddled does.

    So he is better at being a person than being a guy? Is that your way of saying he's effeminate? That doesn't seem appropriate.

    You figure out. I'm not going to waste my time to answer your question.

    It's a stupid line, as is "it means exactly what it says." He's either a good person or he's not.

    Back to the original topic. This obviously is more than a team being protective. Are they just scared of the guy's work or is there some other BS going on?

    PR Paranoia is more like it.
