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.

Thomas was fired as the Knicks' coach following the 2007-08 season. He also served as the franchise's president from December 2003 to April 2008.

Until last spring, he served as head coach of Florida International University's men's basketball team for three seasons.

"Isiah is very close with Jim Dolan but he's told me that he's not ready to jump back into the NBA just yet," source said. "There's this perception out there that Isiah is desperate to get back, but that's false. I think it will eventually happen but just not now."

The funniest thing about this report is that Thomas is putting it out there that he is "reluctant to return." Like he is actually waiting for another NBA team to invite him back into the League.

It is all a shame because I loved Thomas as a player growing up. He was the best. Maybe Jim Dolan did too, and that is why he will always have a desk at New York Knicks Headquarters. Maybe that is what they meant by once a Knick always a Knick

  • I myself think Thomas has some pictures of Dolan in some compromising position.
