One hundred years from now, hopefully a team of psychologists conduct an exhaustive study examining what makes Jim Dolan so infatuated with Isiah Thomas. I will never understand the dynamics of their relationship, and can point toward nothing I could even use as a reason for why Dolan so desperately wants Thomas involved with his Knicks.
It is worth noting that I have personally moved past the point of asking why, to simply accepting the fact that Dolan loves Zeke. No matter what he does, he will always love him, and love is blind. In one hundred years maybe we will find out why. For now, there is this news to start your second week in September:
Former New York Knicks coach and president Isiah Thomas has been offered a position with the team, but is reluctant to return.
A report in the New York Daily News on Sunday cited sources close to Thomas that he has had discussions with Knicks owner James Dolan to return to the team in a management capacity.
