    The absolute worst head coach and general manager in professional sports. Matt Millen deserves the Nobel Prizes in Sports and Peace compared to this defective cretin. PLEASE god, keep him employed with the Knicks, watching the miserable excuse for a human fail is a wonderful Christmas present. One of the dumbest and most ignorant people employed today is Isiah Thomas.

    Matt Millen is as bad a GM; happily, we haven't seen him coach yet.

    Isiah Thomas has failed at every single thing he has ever done in his life that doesn't actually involve playing basketball.

    First-ballot Hall of Fail-er.

    It would be interesting to poll fans of the CBA -- where he ran the league into the ground -- and the Knicks and see who hates him the most.

    I hate him, and I'm neither a CBA fan nor a Knicks fan. That asshat wasted the Pacers team he coached. Fucktarded idiot.

    I'd bet he will be gone by the All Star break. Probably a decent gig for whoever replaces him (assuming Zeke doesn't stick around in the front office and continue to muck things up).

    They will have to clear out the roster and the first year or two will be bleak. But the expectations will be low. And anyone with a pulse will look better than IT.

    Can't imagine it's going real well for Thomas on the home front either in the aftermath of the lawsuit which revealed his apparent low regard for women.

    Two asshats in this story.

    And Johnette Howard teed off on that yesterday:

    It ain't going well for Zeke, but he won't go bye-bye until after the season ends. And that's if Daddy Dolan lays down the law to Junior.

    Completely disagree with Howard. She's seems to blame Dolan for not putting Isiah out of his misery. Presumably because Howard thinks Thomas is too much of a man to quit.

    Thomas asked for complete control and Dolan gave it to him. Thomas must be allowed to not only wallow in his own diseased excrement, but finish it all up. If Dolan is intentionally being sadistic towards Thomas, making him eat his own shit, then Dolan is the greatest owner of our generation. If Thomas quits, he's done forever. If he's fired, someone will pick him up someday.

    The Garden should be chanting KEEP ZEKE!!!. It's the greatest show in town, watching a retarded assclown eat his own crap.

    The CBA had fans? I always thought he did everyone a favor by running that ship into an iceberg.

    He couldn't intentionally do that. If he ran the CBA into an iceberg it was because he was aiming for something else.

    Thomas' four years here have been marked by ridiculous spectacles as well as losses and bad judgment. He continues to show a baffling inability to assemble a balanced roster or mesh talent, manage the salary cap or hew to an operating philosophy over time. There has never been any steadying vision. Just ineptitude.

    Howard makes it crystal clear that she considers Thomas a retarded assclown. The point of the column is that Dolan is an assclown himself, taking perverse pleasure at the expense of his team.

    Everyone's in a lather in the holiday season, so the blood lust runs deep as the bad guy gets fed to the lions. But come on. It's perverse fun for a game or two, but now it's a public stoning, repeated game after game. If that's what you're marketing instead of Knicks games, let's hire O.J. Simpson as coach and put on a damn good public stoning.

    The fans should realize that Dolan is making his players walk through the shitstorm also, so everyone loses as long as it continues. Dolan should fire Thomas now and concentrate on a) building a winner again, and b) finding people who will run the franchise professionally and ethically.

    I'm not a Knicks fan, and I'm firmly planted in the camp that thinks Thomas is an idiot and a fraud. But enough of this charade. Kick his ass out the door and move forward.

    And who's dumb enough to give Thomas another NBA job?

    Fans in CBA towns like Fort Wayne absolutely loved and supported their teams pre-Isiah. Not everyone can live in a metropolitan area. The Yakimas of the world threw a lot of love toward the league. Then IT came along and took away local ownership, which meant little to no promotion. And it went kaput, for awhile.

    IT is Mr. Non-Midas. He could touch a piece of gold and it turns into crap.
