    Nicely done, although I'm not sure about the selling tickets and winning championships line about Kobe.

    Isiah is finding out the hard way how bad a general manager he is. The sad thing about it is the Knicks - despite their 5-10 record - are only one game out of first in the putrid Atlantic division.

    Great column. I've often wondered why GMs roll out max contracts with such frequency, it doesn't make sense.

    Yahoo sports and aol.com have become bookmarked, while I am letting go of my LA Times subscription when it comes due.

    Ah, Zeke and Starbury, two of Woj's favorite whipping boys ... right up there with Larry Brown, Bob Mulcahy and John Calipari

    that's a vicious column. but to paraphrase homer simpson, it's OK because it's true.

    You're not a whipping boy if you've earned it.

    All I'm saying goalie is woj has certain people who he'll attack at every turn...not that they don't deserve it.
    But if Zeke and Larry Brown combined to find a cure for cancer, woj would still rip them for trying to profit from other people's misery

    Good line, spnited. Though I would rather see more blistering columns like this all-around when deserved than fewer.

    The difference between winning and losing - at the management level.

    Detroit Pistons general manager Joe Dumars still hasn't awarded a max contract, but he won the 2004 NBA championship and made it to a Game 7 a year later.

    Thomas paraded some of the worst modern max-out deals in NBA history through Madison Square Garden – Penny Hardaway and Antonio Davis, Steve Francis and Jalen Rose – and the Knicks never recovered.

    I had no idea Joe D hadn't paid a max. Very impressive.

    max deals are definitely a curse. it's amazing how many are handed out. in reality, only five or six players deserve them.
  12. I love the Woj, but if you're going to do a number about the antidote to coach-killing locker-room cancers, it should never include the name of Kobe Bryant.
