I figured we could use a good chuckle today....

Which brings us to Isiah Thomas, who runs the New York Knicks both from the bench and the front office, but who has been more punch line than president for the last few seasons. He took over the floundering Knicks four years ago and did what most thought was impossible -- he made them worse.

As the Knicks became a laughingstock, so did Thomas. It's as if his Hall of Fame playing career never happened. Thomas was labeled as an incompetent, a know-nothing, and with the possible exception of Detroit Lions president Matt Millen, he continues to be the most ridiculed executive or coach in professional sports.

Poor Isiah. Some great players just don't make great coaches or managers. I suggest we protest Sports Illustrated.
Let's give SI back The Fist.

Actually Isiah is doing much better than the highly overpaid Larry Brown. That guy needs to be arrested for robbery.
