    In 8/8 NYT.

    Jesus. Isiah can do one thing, and we're all supposed to ignore his
    multiple, pathetic shortcomings.

    Hitler liked children, too.

    Get off it, Bill. You're WAY out of line.

    I read that this morning with my jaw on the ground. These wee the two graphs that got me:

    How cuckold is Donnie Walsh?

    He's forced to thank Isiah for his "help" in signing Stoudemire. Isiah flies off to Cleveland to try to recruit LeBron. Isiah meets with Dolan for hours without his knowledge. And now Isiah goes behind his back to get a"job" without his input and against his wishes and then puts his name on the press release.

    Not only should the guy resign to retain any shred of dignity he may still have, but he should resign because Dolan & Isiah deserve each other.

    Isiah's after his job. He should let him have it.

    The ship is going down, let Isiah captain it if he wants to.

    The ship went down years ago. Clearly, the Knicks are trying to become a laughingstock in Atlantis too.

    The ship be sinking.

    Basketball aside how do you defend an an executive that was found guilty of sexual harassment.

    Not something you would usually find in the NYT.

    That's easy. Rhoden thinks Zeke is being wronged by "The Man" and Jim Dolan, feeling "white guilt" wants to make amends.

    Pathetic defense of Zeke by Rhoden. I don't know what else to say.

    "Thomas is committed to helping young players, particularly young African-American players, find their way through the maze. "

    Seems like it's the white players having trouble with the NBA maze.

    Zeke wasn't the cause of the Knicks' woes. This franchise had been fucking itself long before he came aboard.

    Any owner dumb enough to hire back a guy who was responsible for a massive sexual assault suit against his club should have his franchise revoked by the league.

    Maybe that's true. Which is why it'd be ludicrous to rehire Scott Layden. And it's ridiculous to rehire Isiah in any role.
