Isiah Thomas Will Have to Explain Himself

New president Donnie Walsh said Wednesday he plans to meet soon with Thomas, and he wants to know why a team he thought could be good instead will finish as perhaps the worst in franchise history.

Walsh insists he hasn’t decided on Thomas’ future with the team, but the Knicks’ 23-56 record clearly works against the coach.

"You can say I have an open mind as far as any conversation I’m going to have," Walsh said. "I still don’t think we’ve played well, there’s a lot of things I want to talk about. So it’s not totally open. It’s not like I’m going in saying, ‘Well, this has all been great, so what do you want to talk about?" [ESPN]
