Default Isaiah is getting an extension...

http://www.newsday.com/sports/basket...orts-headlines

James Dolan is expected Monday to make official what has been speculated for most of the season: Isiah Thomas' tenure with the Knicks will continue after this season.

Dolan will meet with beat reporters who cover the team, but Madison Square Garden officials would not say what Dolan plans to discuss. There is plenty of reason to believe, however, that the Garden chairman will announce he has given Thomas a multi-year extension as president and coach.

And its not like its the Hawks with no talent or the Celtics with young talent. The Knicks are more talented than their records show.

23wins last year, and many expected them to finish worse off this year, but they have 29 wins and 34 losses and are in 8th spot, that deserves credit.

not to me... he deserves to be fired for being a failure as a GM and Coach. He's made horrible decisions and spent major money to be under .500. Only an idiot like Dolan can reward an employee for sub par service...
This team needs to be imploded from ownership down... No one can justify an extension for this moron. One of the highest payrolls in sports and not a championship or Finals to show for it... Dolan should fire IT and hire Kiki Vanderwegh at least he has an idea of how to build a team...

yeah, I agree he spent WAAAYYY too much money on the team, and i'm sure if he had the option of cutting everyones contract by 5 million he would, and theres no one on earth who would want to trade for these players anyway, but hes doing quite an alright job with the team that nobody gave a chance.

The Hawks actually do have some talent - Joe Johnson, Josh Smith, Josh Childress, Ty Lue, Anthony Johnson, Zaza Pachulia.

We certainly aren't the greatest team in the world, but there is some talent.

The problem is that the GM has passed over top point guards again and again - trading Jason Terry, passing on Chris Paul, Raymond Felton, Deron Williams, Earl Watson, Rajan Rondo, Marcus Williams.

Give us Paul, D. Williams or R. Felton out of that bunch and the Hawks are in the playoff hunt.

As has been mentioned, NY costs way too much money to be a sub-.500 team, but I guess Dolan is happy with just contending for a playoff spot. I don't mind, but I'm a Celtic fan...

Building chemistry with a bunch of known losers and one dimensional players no one wants is a tough job.

For all the "talent" New York has, I never hear anyone give their players props, it's always, "Steph is cancer", "Francis is a joke", "Curry is lazy" etc.

Give the man some slack.

All of those "known losers and one dimensional players no one wants" are players that he brought into the team as GM, so no, he gets no slack.

You know if I was in a very very good mood, I´d give him a little credit as a coach for having a ****ty 28-34 record with the current roster, but then he is also the GM, who put this team together in the first place.
