as a bulls fan i love it...they get to swap first rounders with the knicks next year.
Agreed. This will be decided by Stern. The Knicks claim that he broke his contract with MSG by conducting roadside interviews without a public relations official present.
I fault them both. The really had no choice but to let him go. That said, he got off easy. He could never win with this group. Thomas is actually being punished here by having to coach this crew.

Isaiah should be the one fired because he brought in a team of overpaid selfish players who could not play team ball. The job Brown had was hopeles. Without a completely new team and GM, the Knicks are going nowhere.
I agree that this team was uncoachable but that didn't stop him from accepting a $50M contract. He gave up on them and called out the players constantly. Both sides are to blame here.

Cuban may be disliked all over the country except in Dallas. He is what I call a hometown owner.
1.)He got the talent to play in Dallas after years of being the worst team in basketball.
2.)He got the fans coming back
3.) He put in a solid coach.
4.) He has state of the art locker rooms for his players.
5.)He goes above and beyond to stick up for his guys and make sure they are treated fairly
I dont know what more a team could ask for. Sure he shoots off at the mouth alot. But he nicely pays his fines. Then he matches the fines dollar for dollar and donates the money to chairity. Cuban is a owner I'd love to see win a championship because he wants the win as much as the guys do.
Those sound like many of the reasons that everyone hates Steinbrenner.
