Sacramento Kings rookie point guard Isaiah Thomas was booed Wednesday night by New York Knick fans at Madison Square Garden for being named Isaiah Thomas!  Knick fans still carry such a hatred for the former team president and coach Isiah Thomas.  Isaiah is actually named after Isiah as Wikipedia tell us: "Isaiah Thomas was named after former Detroit Pistons All-Star point guard Isiah Thomas when his father, James, bet his friend that his favorite team, the Los Angeles Lakers, would defeat the Pistons in the 1989 NBA Finals. Even though the younger Thomas ended up being born months before the Finals took place, James had already warmed to the name. However, the boy's mother, Tina Baldtrip, insisted on spelling it 'Isaiah', as she desired a biblical name." Thomas reacts to the booing by the garden crowd in the above post-game video.
