NY Knicks fire Scott Layden and hire Isiah Thomas to replace him.

Just shows how the Dolans know much about basketball.

the Knicks are going nowhere...

an amazing turn of events! I couldn't stand Layden, and he was about to give the coach the boot.....

one of the biggest surprises of the season...

however: Chaney is still not that safe....

and while we are at it: what's up with that consant puss on Layden's face?

he looks like he is walking around with a pine cone up his arse all the time.....

what is his PROBLEM? what need wasn't satisfied when he was a kid? LOL....would love to sit in on a hypnosis session with this dude in a psychiatric office!

he left us in a sorry mess.......I don't know how Isaiah is going to do it, but cap-wise, the Knicks are royally screwed....going to take some bold ingenious moves, like, perhaps trading Allan Houston......and don't say he is untradeable......they are really going to have stetch the limit in their imagination to relieve this logjam......

same with Thomas....who the fudge does he think he is comlaining about starting or not?? what is his NBA legacy? he hasn't done jackshite in this league on any sort of consistent basis to even merit opening his angry mouth......his only legacy at this point is fouling out....

what the Knicks lack more than anything else is a guy to do the ugly work, the little things that win games that don't necessarily show up in the stats....when he wasn't injured,Marcus Camby was that kind of player....

Oakley was a classical example of that type of player......

what the NETS have is one player who does it both: I am talking about K-mart.....because not only does he do the dirty work, but he puts up impressive numbers also....

but we sorely lack that kind of personality.....

Sprewell had it, but he also carried a ton of excess baggage with him and was hopelessly playing out of position.......

John, the Knicks have that kind of player, a dirty-no-nonsense player in Kurt Thomas. He can be depended on making 10pts and 10 rebounds almost everynight.

Id like to see them get rid of Allan Houston. I dont care if he scores over 20 pts, but he is a soft as ever. Its going to be hard to get rid of him because of the money he makes.

The Knicks has got to be one of the most boring teams to watch. When you got a guy Frank Williams running the point, you got problems.

Isiah should suit up and play point. He was lousy as a coach, I dont know where he's going to go as a GM. He should be ashamed for taking the job.

And John, you mentioned the sour puss on Layden's face? If you had a father as big as the Titanic, wouldnt you....LOL

sorry Joe, I just don't put Thomas in that category: it's not that he doesn't play hard, but he plays stupid.....

John....K Mart is sooo overrated. He's a slasher, just like his running mate, Jefferson. And they thrive only because of Kidd dishing during the break. Martin has got to have one of the ugliest shots, bricks galore.

Leave this guys alone and they cant shoot a lick. In a halfcourt game, the Nets suffer tremendously. The only guy on the Nets with a decent post up game is Aaron Wiliams, who I think is a big part of the Nets, especially during the playoffs. He's the one doing the dirty work and left unnoticed.

Thomas plays stupid sometimes, but he developed a decent medium range jumpshot and has a good enough post up game. Although undersized, he can guard bigger centers better than Mutombo.

Thomas always had a good jumper, he averaged something like 26 to 28 points a game in college......

Hey Joe..

got to DISAGREE with you on Frank Williams. I think he's really coming on. I love to see him get alot more minutes. He's exciting.
