ISAIAH THOMAS TO COACH THE KNICKS NEXT YEAR?
So says ESPN's Marc Stein:
Thomas has made no secret of his desire to return to coaching someday, and one team insider tells us "it's 1,000 percent" that Thomas will eventually coach the Knicks. Thomas' promise to Madison Square Garden chairman James Dolan on the way in is that he wouldn't move to the bench until the timing made more sense, but that time is basically here.Why would Gotham even want the guy who destroyed the CBA, did next to nothing for Toronto and coached the Indiana Pacers to a first-round exit in the 2003 playoffs? At least he won't be able to blame management for the team he will have to coach.
