Isiah Thomas is back!

There are some things in life that will never, ever go away no matter how unpleasant they are. That lingering fart smell in your hotel room. The yellow underarms of your white t-shirts. An ankle that keeps on spraining and spraining. You get it.

Here’s another — Isiah Thomas. Despite repeated attempts to send him away forever, the scourge of the Knicks’ franchise is back again, running things in New York. From Adrian Wojnarowski at Yahoo! Sports:

The thin veil of secrecy has torn away now, the pretenses gone and Isiah Thomas has left the shadows and moved into the light again. Once more, he is the New York Knicks’ top basketball executive.

Thomas is driving everything through owner James Dolan – the trade for Carmelo Anthony, the departure of Donnie Walsh and perhaps even the eventual hiring of the New York Knicks’ next president and general manager, multiple league sources told Yahoo! Sports.

“Isiah is calling the shots for New York,” said one front-office executive with knowledge of the Anthony trade talks. “It’s a disgrace. Donnie should walk.”

You cannot kill him and he cannot die. He is the I-lander. Fun time to be a New York Knicks fan.

  1. Classic Wojnarowski. Three small anonymous quotes in an ultra-controversial substance lacking column that’s sure to hit every corner of the blogosphere. I never take the time to post a negative comment on blogs, but the fact that this crappy piece is getting so much atttention bums me out.

  2. @Brandon

    Why hasn’t Donnie Walsh’s contract been extended?

  3. Probably because Dolan is an idiot. Doesn’t change the fact that there is nothing substantive to sell me on the fact that Isiah is currently the Knicks top executive and pulling the purse strings of this Melo deal in that column.

  4. Also, doesn’t help that Adrian Woj is a Nets fan. Not even a secret anymore.

  5. Woj says a lot of things.

  6. Woj is a Nets fan? Wow. Then he’s only the second one I’ve ever known of. And yes, I’ve lived my whole life in NJ.

    Really hope this isn’t true for the greater good of all society. I’m not trying to be hyperbolic here. The stakes are literally that high.

  7. Woj could definitely be pumping up the story but he’s not the first guy to mention Isiah nosing around the chicken coop once again. He’d better be a bit more careful than in the past however, this stuff runs real close to tampering.

  8. I pray to all deities that this is inaccurate.

  9. Please kill me now.

  10. Every culture has boogeyman legends to scare the children. None are quite as frightening as this one though.

  11. the knicks are officially screwed again.
