    1. I realize I’m late but hear are my 2nd round predictions, made b4 the round started:
      Cavs over Bulls in 6
      Hawks over the John Walls in 7
      Warriors over the Grizz in a sweep
      Clippers over the Hardens in 7

    2. Lots of ex-Knicks still hanging around:
      David
      Jamal
      Shump
      JR
      Mozgov
      Zach
      Barnes
      Ariza
      Prigs
      Papa

      Any others?

    3. Joakim Noah was drafted with our pick. Does that count?

      And we drafted Nene before trading him to Denver.

    4. “Nazr Mohammed”
      Hard to believe that he is still in the NBA. You know who else is back in the NBA after a two year hiatus? Bill Walker. He plays for the Heat and, for some reason, now calls himself Henry Walker (which is why I didn’t realize that he was the same guy).

    5. How about Turkoglu? With that white T shirt he’s been wearing, he looks like a guy who just played in the YMCA men’s over 40 league.

    6. In a curious turn of events (sadly predictable?), Isiah Thomas is back in MSG! I guess it’s only a matter of time before he weasels his way back into the Knicks front office. Ha. Ha. I’m dead.

      “Hall of Fame NBA player Isiah Thomas has been named president of the WNBA’s New York Liberty, sources told ESPN’s Chris Broussard. Thomas will also have part ownership of the team.”

      The proverbial fox in the henhouse

    8. Always a nice touch to put the guy with the $10M+ sexual harassment lawsuit in charge of the women’s team. Stay classy Jimmy D.

    9. I’d say it’s unbelievable, but with Jimmy it is entirely believable. What a shitbag.

    10. He’s bankrupted the CBA. He was an incompetent disaster as GM of the Knicks. He somehow managed to be even worse as the coach of the Knicks than he was as GM. He was a disaster as coach of FIU. Even setting aside the pants on head stupidity of hiring a sexual harasser to run a women’s team, Zeke has failed at every job at every level of basketball he’s ever had.

    11. In other news, James Dolan has named Jerry Sandusky as head choreographer for the Knicks City Kids.

    12. “Always a nice touch to put the guy with the $10M+ sexual harassment lawsuit in charge of the women’s team.”
      The women’s players union has to go on strike or something over this, right? Of all of the stupid things that Dolan has done, this really has to be the stupidest.

    13. Ephus — I’m getting really nervous. Please tell me that there’s no way Isiah can trade the Knicks’ first round pick for Skylar Diggins. Please?

    14. To be fair, he was a terrible GM for the Knicks, but I am not sure he was a terrible coach. In terms of won lost records the Knick teams he was President of but not coach went down hill for two years and were 23 and 59 in the second year. He took over as coach and they improved to 33 and 49. I don’t recall that improvement being due to any special GM work that he did. He coached the Indiana Pacers for three years and they were over .500 and made the playoffs each year. I’m not claiming this is a stellar coaching record, but since his Knick’s coaching was hampered by his GM’s bad decisions (i.e. his decisions), I have to say it’s a pretty ordinary NBA coaching record and nothing abysmal. I would also note that from what I read at the time, all of his players seemed to like playing for him.

      His FIU stint was indeed awful.

    15. Of course, being a not awful coach, won’t help him in his new job at all.
