Perhaps the worst era of New York Knick history occurred when Isiah Thomas was calling the shots in the front office and on the bench.  The Knicks still haven’t fully recovered from the moves made by Thomas and many fans were glad when Thomas left the team in 2008.  Well, he’s back; the Knicks just named Isiah Thomas their team consultant.

The Latest on the Lakers.

You may have all heard about the brawl that unfolded at a kindergarten graduation involving 20 adults about a Facebook comment about the Lakers; if I had to use one word to describe those events it would be… pathetic.  Sports are a great way to have fun and should be enjoyed with family and friends, but with events such as this and the riots on the streets of LA, the fun sort of slips away.

Ron Artest was the only addition to the Lakers from the 2008-2009 team;  he made many decisions that irritated Phil Jackson and Laker fans, but at the end of the day, Artest was the reason why Los Angeles won Game 7. [Silver Screen and Roll]

Even with the addition of Bogans, the Bulls are interested in Tracy McGrady; don’t be surprised if T-Mac ends up  in Chicago. [ESPN Chicago]
