Brown Gone; Thomas In

I think this move had to be made. There was a practical revolt last year against Larry Brown, and it's going to be extremely hard to move any of the players that seem to dislike Brown so much. I think you have to blame Isiah Thomas more for the team's problems given he assembled an awful, overpaid roster, but Brown is also to blame. Unfortunately for Knicks fan, Thomas isn't likely to turn things around. The team still doesn't fit together. They've got enough talent that they can probably do better next year, but long term the franchise has become a total disaster area.

Is there anywhere Isaiah Thomas goes that he doesn't leave a trail of wreckage in his wake?

You knew this was coming half way through last season. While some of the problem is Brown and his 82 different lineups last year, Isaih Thomas should be taking most of the blame. He is the worst GM in the history of the NBA. I can't beleive Mr. Dolan fails to see this. Their payroll is $123 mil, and what have they got to show for it? Nothing, that's what. Oh i'm sorry they have the biggest dysfunctional family in the NBA. Also, Isaih in his infinate wisdom, traded away their 2006 1st round pick to the Bulls and the Bulls have the right to swap 1st round picks in 2007, thanks to the Eddie Curry trade.

My Mavs got cheated out of a title by the refs. :( Of course, if they'd shot better than 5% from the field they still would have won anyway.
