Has Isiah Thomas Officially Gone Crazy?


Although Isiah Thomas has not won a single playoff game since coming to New York, the Knicks’ embattled president and coach predicted on Wednesday night that the franchise will win an NBA championship. With Thomas in charge. Seriously.

Sounding delusional, Thomas appeared to be talking to Garden chairman James Dolan through the media by saying he believes the Knicks will win a title and by reiterating that he has no plans to resign.

‘My belief and what I see and where I believe we can go as a team and an organization, I believe one day that we will win a championship here and I believe a couple of these guys will be a part of that,’ Thomas said before the Knicks were walloped at the Garden by the depleted Sacramento Kings, 107-97. ‘I believe I’ll be a part of that.’

Thomas admitted that his comments, which border on the absurd, leave him open for ridicule. [Click here for more from the New York Daily News.]
