Isiah Thomas has been let go from FIU, and has now joined the unemployment list in this struggling economy. Could the New York Knicks bring back Isiah Thomas? Believe it or not, I can see him coming back to New York. Knicks owner James Dolan has a soft spot for Isiah Thomas for whatever reason. He is dumb enough to bring him back. He clearly doesn't care how anyone thinks of him because he'll whatever he wants and we have no say according to him. This would be a media backlash if this were happen, even though I had this impression that he would back within a few years. It's clear the NBA wanted to get of rid of Isiah Thomas away from the Knicks so they can turn themselves around with new management. They brought in Donnie Walsh and Mike D'Antoni to clear the bad air out at Madison Square Garden and bring winning basketball back to NYC. Four years later, both Donnie Walsh and Mike D'Antoni are gone and Isiah's buddies Glen Grunwald who is the current GM and Mike Woodson the HC. Those three are very good friends since going to the 1970's at Indiana University playing college basketball all together. Although, I don't see him becoming the general manager of the team. I can see him return as a talent evaluator, which he has talent wise of finding good players. Let's hope and pray that this is all a dream or it really is a total nightmare.

Box of Ziti’s for April 5, 2012

After a bit of back and forth I have decided that it is best that I do Box of Ziti’s by myself, since the logistic (just ask what Brown can do for you I guess) of getting the games from the others is not so easy to then put them into a post. So, with the beginning of Major League Baseball, I figured this would be the perfect time to start back up, but before I do here is the usual...

Amar'e Stoudemire, perpetually day-to-day

Unlike others, Love's story has lasted

MINNEAPOLIS On March 24, Jeremy Lin injured his knee, thereby dealing the death blow to the NBA's feel-good story of the moment.

Exactly 49 days separated Lin's breakout 25-point night and his season-ending injury, and yet it somehow became an era. Linsanity...
