Complex Says: Despite the years of losing records, the budget busting free-agent spending and the lawsuit, Knicks owner James Dolan re-hired Isiah as a consultant. President Donnie Walsh was against it and, oh yeah, since Thomas was coaching FIU at the time it was also in violation of NCAA and NBA rules. Zeke was talking about winning rings and standing on a float, riding down the Canyon of Heroes. He even tried to big up his free agent signings (Jared F. Jeffries... really?), claiming they would help the Knicks go secure other big name free agent talent. Those drugs he O.D.'d on must've done damage.
