Did Isiah give Amar’e his ‘Renaissance Man’ nickname?
"I’ve been ordained the Renaissance Man," said Stoudemire on Twitter shortly after midnight Sunday morning. "This is now my new nickname. Renaissance Man. You like it, I love it. Its not going to change." Isiah Thomas referred to Stoudemire as a renaissance man in comments to Frank Isola of the New York Daily News on Saturday.
HoopsVibe’s Very Quick Call: Isiah Thomas strikes again.
The Hall of Fame point guard is again showing his influence over the New York Knicks by dubbing Amar’e Stoudemire ‘The Renaissance Man’.
Thomas, who is the coach of Florida International University, doesn’t officially work for the Knicks, but finds time to ‘help’ with trades, free agent signings, and mediocre nicknames.
This isn’t good for the Knicks. They need a talented replacement for executive Donnie Walsh, and any worthwhile candidate won’t want to deal with Thomas’ constant meddling.
Of course, Thomas may be Walsh’s replacement.
Despite being one of the worst GMs in league history, Knicks owner James Dolan has considered re-hiring Thomas because the two are friends.
And then Thomas would get the last laugh.
