Im just disappointed and hurt, Thomas told The Associated Press on Thursday night before a promotional event for his mens basketball team at FIU. I never thought it was him who kept me off the Olympic team. That hurt.

I haven't read the book but I want to.

Isiah sounds like a little bitch. If he doesn't like it he should write his own damn book

If you can round up old NBA film and watch him play you'd never think to call him a bitch ever again. He's one of the toughest sons of bitches who ever laced'em up and a damn good judge of young talent.

that's what made the transition of his persona somewhat hard to accept. The man WAS a spectacular player. Tough as nails. I remember watching him hoble around with that sprained ankle and be better than anyone else on the court. As a kid, he truly was one of my favorite players.

but his post playing career has been the complete opposite. He has become a bit of a joke of his former self. If you want to drive an NBA franchise into the ground, then hire Isiah!. And a good judge of talent? he's OK. Maybe he's make a great scout.

theres a big difference between judging young talent and making sound business desicions. and while Isiah is great at finding diamond's in the rough, he's a horrible business man.
he pretty much single handedly handicapped the Knicks for years. when you have a chance, look at some of the contracts he gave out.... jerome james, really? did he use his power of judging talent on that gem of a deal?
he gets too much credit IMO, and while he should be considered one of the greatest NBA players of all time, he should also be remembered as one of the worst GM's of all time as well.

He'd make a fantastic scout. He's good at drafting players but horrible at making deals - a lot of his draft selections panned out. The track record speaks for itself - Stoudamire, Camby, McGrady, Lee, Robinson, Ariza...
