This is absurd.

Wilkens is even looser than Chaney. Not gonna work. Not gonna work.

Don Gets Whacked

Isiah Thomas continues to turn over New York's apple cart. Knicks coach Don Chaney has been fired and assistant Brendan Malone will coach tonight against Orlando. One newspaper reported today that Mike Fratello will be Chaney's permanent successor.

Fratello said not.

It's Wilkens.

What a mess. I am trying to figure how this could have been handled worse.

Lenny's still alive? Geez, I thought the guy had died in harness a couple of years ago. Maybe his mind just died instead.

Isiah Thomas did Chaney wrong.

Thomas is a punk-a$$ bee-yotch, whose day is coming.

I must say, Thomas was a major ass to Chaney on Letterman AND today!!! The amount of respect I had for Thomas is dwindling!!!

Regarding Fratello, I will go with what I read in another thread... He has no contract so he HAS to say he has no plans to coach in NY UNTIL he does have a contract!!!

Fratello would be SO MUCH better of a fit than that "I only have 34038493 wins because I coached 3048308430 years" Wilkens!!!
