ISSUE: Despite his controversial previous tenure with the Knicks, Isiah Thomas has been rehired as a consultant by owner James Dolan. Some NBA sources claim Thomas should be ineligible to take the job because of his current coaching job at Florida International University.
WHITEY FORD SAYS: Isiah's been dead to me ever since he had the audacity to question Larry Legend's status as the greatest of all time.
DARK MAN X SAYS: Clown his moves all you want, but Zeke still has an impeccable nose for talent (word to Trevor Ariza and David Lee). Plus: a black man simultaneously holding down two jobs in sports? Can't knock the hustle. Seriously, though: Have the Knicks been any better since he left?
COMPLEX SAYS: If it means Melo's coming to NYC, it'll all be worth it.
