I'm not joking! Isiah's rep is that he will stab you in the back at the same time he smiles and shakes your hand.

There are good reasons why he is hated by his super-star peers.

LB definitely gets most of the blame but the players still got to produce. I think part of the problem was Cats did not know their role and lacked confidence. Hopefully we step up to the plate and come out swingin this year. I'm confident that Zeke will optimize his roster and get the best out of his players. Mostly because they want to play for him

I know that Larry Brown did one of the worst coaching jobs in NBA history. I agree with you there. I agree that consistency is one of the most improtant aspects of sports also. I am just saying that you can't blame everything on Larry Brown. The players are at fault also. The blame has to be on them as much as it was on Larry Brown. I do have knowledge of the game. Just because I don't agree with on somthing doesn't mean that I am stupid when it comes to basketball.

It was 43. LB either went senile or was trying to get the GM job along with a new roster.

People tend to give credit to the coach only when their losses. LB jacked our season up. We all know that. But check our record last year when he played games with our roster. Remember last season when we came out in 2006 and won six straight games. That's what happens when you have a regular starting rotation! You play better. By the way they beat some decent teams during that stretch. LB just showed that he could coach, but chose not to, so he could possibly make Isaiah look bad for having these players there. Then what's up with Nate being benched after winning the slam dunk contest(even though the dude from the sixers should have won)? Praise your players and don't punish them when they do good. LB knows better. Detroit was on it's way to their championship anyway. They just needed a missing piece which was Rasheed. LB is tired of coaching. thats why he was courting the cavs GM job during the 05 finals. Thats loyalty I guess. He even tried to get chauncey traded after the won the finals. AND HE WAS THE MVP!!! But then again chauncey is a scoring pg and LB hates that. Ask A.I. Im so glad LB is gone. Too bad the knicks forced him into coaching again with 50 million reasons. that was Zeke's truly worst aquisition. Next to the two first round draft picks for Eddy Curry. One i could understand but two? come on dude. But the knicks will win around 50+ games next season just to make themselves look better, so the pick won't be that good

Nobody forced LB into coaching! He is already a wealthy man even before the Knicks threw out $50 Million on him.

He must have figured that if cump Charlie Dollan was crazy enough to give him $50M to coach, Dollan would be fool enough to fire him and have to pay $50M for only one year of work. Hmm at 23 wins, LB will get paid $2,173,913 per game if David Stern finds for him!

Now that's real genius!

Now Isiah's hated by his peers???

So I just imagined him and Magic Johnson hugging each other like long lost brothers every time they see each other?

Did Isiah sending McFilthy & McNasty after Mike Jordan and Larry Bird have nothing to do with how they view him?

Did you forget the fact that more than a handful of the Pacer players requested a trade from the team after Larry Bird pulled one of the most underhanded firings in NBA history when Isiah was let go?
