Topic - Isiah Thomas
It's Friday night in a dangerous Chicago neighborhood, and a steady stream of teenagers slip inside the gym at Kennicott Park.
Isiah Thomas is just like the rest of America, catching up on the NCAA tournament on TV whenever he can. There's just one tiny difference.
Not all great NBA players make great NBA executives. With Michael Jordan's Charlotte Bobcats in line to finish this season with perhaps the worst record in NBA history, a list of five executives who dazzled as players and baffled as decision-makers:
Richard Pitino had two options. He could remain part of his father's coaching staff at Louisville and aim at returning to the Final Four next season, or take over a program that hasn't posted a winning record since he was a teenager.
Isiah Thomas arrived at Florida International knowing that he was taking a risk.
Magic Johnson said it's "ridiculous" to suggest David Stern is racist, saying it's OK to disagree with the NBA commissioner but that you "can't attack the man and what he stands for."
Even while chasing championships in Detroit, Chauncey Billups couldn't help but notice the comedy of errors playing in New York.
At least Carmelo Anthony didn't have to switch uniforms in the middle of the All-Star game.
The New Jersey Nets still believe they are in the race for Carmelo Anthony, and if not, owner Mikhail Prokhorov thinks at least they made it harder for the New York Knicks.
A year ago, Isiah Thomas was asked more than a few times about how long he planned to remain coaching at Florida International.
David Stern's long reign as commissioner of the NBA has been filled with decisions, some momentous and some mundane.
Isiah Thomas will not be returning to the New York Knicks after all.
Mike D'Antoni sounds OK with it. Mike Krzyzewski wouldn't do it.
Even after losing all those games and an embarrassing sexual harassment lawsuit, Isiah Thomas has a place with the New York Knicks.
What's in a smile? Apparently, nothing good -- at least not according to the Washington Wizards' new head coach, Flip Saunders, who earlier this summer admonished player Nick Young for smiling too much on the court.
"There were a lot of obstacles that we had to overcome through the years, and we couldn't have done it without your love and support," Thomas said.
"We all come from championship backgrounds, we all come from championship philosophies and coaches and Woodson will not have a problem understanding and implementing the nuances of the triangle if that's what Phil wants done."
