Zeke was a much better coach than he was general manager, with that being said Isiah has a bit of a Scarlett Letter on him and Joe Dumars can’t afford to make another bad coaching decision, so take this info with a grain of salt.
Isiah Thomas also could have a formal chat with [Joe Dumars]. The former backcourt mates speak regularly, and during Thomas’ last visit to The Palace, during Dennis Rodman’s jersey retirement, he was in Dumars’ suite.
Thomas’ issues have been well-documented during his time in New York, although it should be noted the Knicks were a mess well before he set foot in Madison Square Garden. Thomas does have experience in developing young players during his time as an executive in Toronto and as head coach in Indiana.
Knicks fans are hoping this happens.
