Default Isaih is doing a good job.

i dont know what other people think but i think isaih is doing a good job. he's definitely doin a better job then larry brown did. yea we are under .500 but we are playin way better. i like the fact that we dont quit. when we are down they really try battle back. curry is playin the best ball in his career, marbury is playin the best d in his career, and a lot of the credit goes to isiah. me personally i hope he doesnt get fired and i hope he keeps his job.

Great job?

He took a very good bench player who is a defensive specialist and tried to make a starter out of him.

Not one coach in the league would have started Jared Jefferies, he is a bench player.

So now by putting the pressure on the guy to be something he's not Jefferies has lost his confidence and is useless. He was actually trying to shoot three's.........

He job was supposed to be a backup who comes in to try and shut down the big scorer on the opposing team, no more no less.

He could not figure out a way to get Frye and Curry to play together. And since it hasn't worked refuses to use Frye as a backup center. What is Frye doing on this team?

He actually let Jerome James play, let alone wear a Knick uniform when he has a capable backup in Cato, who sees no playing time.

So exactly why is he doing a good job?

Yes he finally got through to Marbury, something countless teams and coaches could not do and he has really helped Curry become half of a good center.

Not enough in my book. Remember he's the guy who got all of these players.

Default Re: Isiah is doing a good job.

Jeffries was starting in Washington.

Isiah has done a Great job as a GM. He's done an ok job as a coach.

I like his player rotations. I don't think this Knick team plays enough defense. That's been his biggest failure as a coach so far. But it's still very early. It takes a team 2 years to learn to play together, and he's only been coaching them 6 months. And they're starting to play better defensively.

I liked the way he realized Curry's weakness defensively was causing other teams to go at him, causing Knicks to doubleteam, and allowing open jumpers -- and so he put Jerome James in starting lineup. Worked for two games. Isiah has shown he'll make adjustments and not play favorites.

The Knicks aren't going anywhere without great defense. As good as Balkman is, Jeffries is a bonafide NBA-proven defensive stopper and intimidator. He's 6'11" and has proven he can shut down the best scorers in the league. So if the Knicks are going to be a real contender, they're going to need Jeffries to get back to where he was in DC.

David Lee is best off the bench. He's going to win 6th man of the year. He still needs to improve his defense. His spark and energy off the bench helps the team and he plays 35 minutes anyway, and finishes the game, so starting is almost completely unimportant.

I like the way Isiah has gotten the ball to Curry inside. It causes everything to go right -- Curry gets the ball more, plays more in rhythm, gets less offensive fouls, racks up 20plus points a game, starts getting calls from the refs, and now he's passing out of the post better, and Marbury is starting to thrive.

KNICKS ARE LOOKING GOOD !!!!!!

Although they'll probably lose their next 3. They're still looking good !

And it's all Isiah's fault !

AND HERE'S A BONUS:

THE KNICKS DON'T HAVE THE FOLLOWING ROSTER ANYMORE:
C: DIKEMBE MUTUMBO - AGE 54
PF: KURT THOMAS - ONLY PLAYER ON LEAGUE ANYONE WANTED
SF: KEITH VAN HORN - WHERE IS HE NOW?
SG: ALAN HOUSTON - DONE BUT NOONE WOULD SAY SO
PG: CHARLIE WARD - RETIRED

KEY RESERVES: OTHELLA HARRINGTON, CLARENCE WEATHERSPOON, "FRANCHISE-PLAYER-OF-THE-FUTURE" MICHEL LAMPE, SHANDON ANDERSON, AND HOWARD EISLEY


And when Isiah took over EVERY MEDIA GUY IN TOWN said he couldn't do ANYTHING with that roster because the Knicks were 60 million over the cap (team payroll of $108) deep into the future !!!

ISIAH THOMAS IS SANTA CLAUS

Isiah was hated as a player. Hated as GM. Hated as a coach. He's not Santa...he's the devil. I used to love the Knick's till this fool destroyed them trying to prove that he has some off the court skills. I say fire the fool!

I have seen this posted elsewhere on this board, and it makes no sense. ISAIH ASSEMBLED THIS GROUP. So the argument that he has done a good job because noone else could have done better with this group does not make sense.

Jerome James - 5 years 30 million when noone was offering him anything
Jared Jeffries - 5 years 30 million
Jalen Rose/Steve Francis - you want to blame this half on Brown fine, but Dolan came out and said that he would not have made this move if both the GM and the coach did not ok it
Mo Williams.

The list can go on and on. Not to mention he hired Larry Brown, so if that was such a mistake then he has to take some of the blame also.

People will never give Zeke his props as a good coach. At this time last year, the Knicks were fighting with each other and could barely play ball. Zeke comes in, gets the team to play well together and produce some wins, and all I hear and see is "yeah, but". "Yeah but" nothing!! Give Zeke his props!!

The Knicks are 3 GB from the lead in the Atlantic. I don't want to hear about "its a weak divison". It was weak last year and the year before. Zeke has this team performing.

No, your argument does not make sense. Larry Brown did not put the Pistons together, it was Joe Dumars and the owner, but Larry managed to get the Pistsons to play well. The reason why Zeke hired Larry was probably because Larry B was this "great" coach who could get teams turned around. Apparently Larry was not a great coach.

Don't worry. Zeke is having fun proving you critics wrong.

First Larry Brown did a bad job in NY for sure, but he still is a great coach, who has won in college and in the NBA. Thomas was a great player but has done nothing as a coach.

LOL "Zeke" is proving all the critics wrong by having a team 6 games under .500 and as of right now not in the playffs in one of the weakest divisions in recent memory.

Just because Jefferies started in Washington doesn't make him a starter when it comes to talent.

He's not.....

He is what he is.

Limited....but has value if you know how to use him.

Default Re: Isaih is doing a good job.

Larry Brown didn't teach the Pistons how to win. The Pistons were Division Champions before Larry Brown coached the team. Then he did his usual 'emasculation of all the egos so that his massive ego is the only one in town' card trick, and the Pistons were in disarray. Midway through the season, amidst dissension, he finally started playing the regular rotation that had played the year before, and the Pistons started to win. Then Dumars acquired Rasheed Wallace to put them over the top.

Many people say the Pistons won in spite of Larry Brown, not because of him.

Knicks are playing better defense of late.

Isiah Thomas as a coach has gotten this group of players he accumulated to play hard, and play good.

Phil Jackson was quoted the other day that Isiah's player rotations have been terrific.

Don Nelson was quoted today as saying Isiah has done a great job as coach.

Isiah = Great Job as GM + Decent Job as Coach.

Give us some D, and he'll get coach of the year. But we need the D.

Larry Brown is a great coach?? Since when. Whats funny is that before larry got to the pistons he was seen as a great coach in the regular season. A bad play off coach. so overall he was mediocre. Now Joe Dumars HANDED HIM a title, he's a great coach?? F.O.H.

Larry Brown is a good coach and thats about it. There is nothing great about him. He's not a motivator, he's not into developing players. what he does do very well is strategically set up lineups and follow through. Thats pretty much his worth.
