Default Isiah Is A Genius

Supposedly he's decided to be unactive this summer. What a genius, he must have a 150 IQ.

Quote:
Thomas is in No Rush to Trade
"Isiah Thomas the coach surveys the roster assembled by Isiah Thomas the president and likes what he sees so much so that the Knicks might be unusually quiet this summer," writes Howard Beck of THE NEW YORK TIMES. "The Knicks won just 23 games last season, and their two draft picks forward Renaldo Balkman and guard Mardy Collins are not expected to make a major impact. Yet Thomas, the man with two job titles and a one-year ultimatum, said he was satisfied with his team."

There is no idea to tell how the current Knicks team can perform. You honestly think that Larry Brown was a good coach for that group? With his drama in the media, his 60 different rotations etc etc etc.

They have some talented players. If Thomas can get them to play together, and that's a big if mind you, they could be pretty good.

At least good enough, that they might be able to get something decient for the players in a trade.

Rigth now, nobody is going to give good value for any of the Knicks players.

The Knicks have so much talent there is really no excuse not to make the playoffs. Larry Brown was just not the right coach for that particular collection of talent. He is the kind of coach that plays a certain way and it's a way that players usually don't like to play, especially street ball style guys like Francis and Marbury.

There is no doubt in my mind that Isiah is a much better coach for the Knicks right now and they will improve their win total.

I think the Knicks style of play last year did not utilize what little strengths they had mainly b/c of Marbury's overdribbling. If they space the floor they have alot of good shooters like Crawford and Rose who can hit open jumpers...if only their PG's would drive and dish like they're supposed to

Well.. the amount of wins Larry Brown had with that team might be deceptive.. Brown sems to be more concerned with the team playing a certain way even if they lost than winning games playing the wrong way.

Isiah will coach for a year have them nipping at a play-off spot and then maybe m,ake the play-ofs but he'd never be able to coach more than just a play-off team.......Similiar to what he did in Indiana.....

If Frye is healthy and the get a decent showing from guard rotation they could be decentbut with him as the coach nothing more.

He needs to make moves. He needs to get players that will scrap defensively. And if he can trick some team to give up a superstar, do it.

I still think that Minnesota's best move if they were to trade Garnett would be to deal with NY or Chi, but more Ny than Chi due to expirers

Default Zeke lied about Phx drafting...

Balkman.

June 30, 2006 -- When Isiah Thomas defended his decision to nab defensive South Carolina small-forward defensive specialist Renaldo Balkman at 20 instead of waiting for 29, he said his "due diligence" discovered the Suns were going to take him at either 21 or 27.

Sherlock Holmes, Isiah is not. Three sources, including one inside the Suns organization, told The Post yesterday Phoenix was not taking Balkman in the first round and that's not why they traded their picks. One league source who spoke to a Suns official said if Balkman was available at 45, they would have passed.

As such, Thomas could have selected his point-guard-of-the-future in lottery-projected Marcus Williams at 20, then secured mystery man Balkman at 29. A rebuilding team passing on Williams is shortsighted, as Marbury is 29 with a lot of mileage and sore knees, and Francis is 29 going on 39.

Thomas said Williams duplicated the small guards they had on the roster and he'd rather have 6-5 point guard Mardy Collins anyhow.

"When you look at the type of point guard we needed, we needed more size at that position," Thomas said. "Marcus is great but if you go back and look at scouting reports Mardy was ranked pretty high."

"Call Billy Donovan, he won the national championship last year. Ask him if we were surprised to take a guy like Balkman because his team beat them twice."

One South Carolina source said Balkman, who came off the bench 12 times and has no offensive game whatsoever, thought the Knicks could be interested at 29 but not 20. Balkman was not included in the draft media guide that lists 100 players. The Suns may not have taken Balkman if there was a third round.

"I was shocked," Balkman said yesterday. "I was at my mother's house. We woke up the whole apartment complex [in Tampa]. I just wanted to be drafted period."

Thomas said he so badly didn't want Balkman's name to emerge in the newspapers he only called him "The B-Man." Turns out, he didn't have to be so secretive.

"When you look at Balkman, you can look at every guy on our roster and say we don't have a guy like this with that engine," Thomas said.

Isiah might be speaking the truth but Phx. won't want to admit it. I find it weird that Phx. traded away all of their picks.
