Today in “As the Knicks Sink”…

January 14, 2008

Reading through the weekend’s links, I come upon a long Filip Bondy piece on how every 20 years , the Knicks fall into extreme suckage. This is what happens when the basketball becomes interminable to watch or write about– the journalists dig deep into their vault and pull some nuggets from the back shelf to keep the readership entertained. I dig that.

Stephon Marbury sat out the last game with a “left ankle injury”; as we all know, the left ankle is where everyone’s “willingness to play with a reduced role” bone is. The Journal News points out an interesting “if” in Isiah’s comments about Starbury’s status, the kind of if that is kin to Steve Francis’ injuries when he was with the Knicks and “rehabbing at home”. But wait…

James Dolan might considering firing Isiah?!:

Garden chairman James Dolan recently told confidants that he knows a coaching change must be made and that he is preparing to do just that, according to a source close to Dolan. No timetable was given, but the source indicated that Dolan is leaning toward making a change before the end of the season.

Firing Isiah as coach? As GM? As both? I guess Dolan found those dirty photos that isiah must have been holding over his head to keep him job in the face of this unprecedented constant sucking.
