Default Dolan Leaning Towards Firing Isiah Before Season's End

What are the benefits of keeping Isiah now? I mean, the players have obviously blocked him out and its only a matter of time before the fans do something stupid during one of their games at MSG.

Cut him now Dolan and swallow your pride. You made a huge mistake in offering him an extension, just wipe your hands clean of Zeke sooner rather than later and give these guys an opportunity to have some fun again.

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.

Dolan's change of heart comes 10 months after he rewarded Thomas with a contract extension believed to be worth $24 million. Also, two months ago a Garden official leaked a story to three newspapers that Thomas still had the support of ownership.

It is not clear whether Dolan would allow Thomas to continue in his role as the team's highest-ranking decision-maker once he is removed from the bench. Such a scenario would seem unlikely, but Thomas' survival skills should never be underestimated.

Last night, Thomas sounded like a coach who knows that his time is running short. Thomas compared himself to the construction worker who lays the foundation to a house for someone else to live in.

"When you move into your house, the guy who poured the concrete never really gets a chance to live in that beautiful house that he built," Thomas said. "Our job right now is to make sure that we lay the concrete and that we lay it correctly."

How can a guy that doesnt have any respect from the players or the fans still be coaching. He must know some dirty lillte secret from dolan.

seeing that guys mug last night.... it was down right depressing...
he has zero passion whatsoever, and neither does his team.
i'm surprised he still has a job there...
his basketball life is over.

this is it for him, he will never be hired by any organization ever again.

that statement is ridiculous. And to think we thought it was a bad thing when Isiah left Toronto.
