And for a lot of the season, that’s exactly what Copeland was, but just like Prigioni, he proved himself to be much more valuable than most could have reasonably expected. The numbers: 56 gp, 13 gs, 15.4 mpg, 8.7 ppg, 42.1 3-point % This season, Copeland proved he can score at the NBA level.

Isiah Thomas is still talking about the Knicks…

When I was a junior high schooler, Isiah Thomas was one of my favorite players.  When my Dad and I hit the courts every Saturday morning, he’d encourage me by saying my skill could compensate for my small size a la Zeke.  From that moment on, I always admired Thomas. Until he came to New York and ruined my Knicks.  Now, I cringe anytime Thomas’s name and the Knicks are mentioned...
