Breakup The Knicks
Well, not really. But a legitimate buzz surrounding the Knickerbockers is once again present on Fashion Avenue. And hey, I'm about as big of a Isiah detractor as there is out there -- the day he was hired and Scott Layden fired, my reaction was "out of the fire, into the frying pan" -- but the man definitely deserves his due for bringing some respectability back to the NBA at MSG. Here's a nice Times article detailing his work.
Oh yeah, in case you were questioning Isiah's work, have a look at what Olympian Carmelo Anthony has to say about the Knickerbockers' backcourt: "That's a hell of a duo right there: Marbury, Crawford, and Houston." Nice.
