The one person standing in the way of Isiah Thomas officially returning to the Knicks is Isiah Thomas. According to a source close to the former Knicks president, Thomas and Garden chairman James Dolan have had numerous discussions about a position in the organization, but Thomas has been reluctant to accept the job offer. "Isiah is very close with Jim Dolan but he's told me that he's not ready to jump back into the NBA just yet," said the source, who was with Thomas on Friday at the Basketball Hall of Fame induction ceremony in Springfield, Mass. "There's this perception out there that Isiah is desperate to get back, but that's false. I think it will eventually happen but just not now."
Doland even considering hiring zeke again is a travesty.
The Los Angeles Clippers opened training camp on Friday with an early media day before their extended preseason that will take them all the way to China.
It will be important, however, for Lee to at least fill the open shooting guard role in the starting lineup to at least start the season. With Avery Bradley out for rough the first two months of the season, it will be important for Lee to answer the call and make sure he can provide the team with some nice minutes. vsafa
Jason Terry is much more comfortable in the sixth man role, so there is no need to mess with that. Besides him, there are really no other pure guards that you can count on as Dionte Christmas and Jamar Smith are far too unproven to warrant meaningful minutes at this juncture.bfdsgsd
I always felt Lee would be the type of player that would fit in seamlessly with a new team, especially a team with championship aspirations. He doesn’t always need the ball in his hands and has always been a willing defender, dating back to his days at Western Kentucky.
“Like anyone, you want to develop him and development is not just in the games, development is what you do every day,” Frank said. “How are his habits? What is he doing in practice? What is he doing in individual work? What is he doing in the weight room? What is he doing in the film study? And look he is doing all good things, they are all positives, so I am sure if he continues on that path, he will find his way and earn his way into playing time as long as he continues to put maximum effort into everything he does.”
Former two-time scoring champion Tracy McGrady’s star power may have flickered in the NBA after an assortment of injuries robbed his explosiveness, but the forward still has global appeal evident by his one-year deal to play with the Qingdao DoubleStar Eagles of the Chinese Basketball Association.
McGrady’s former teammate with the Atlanta Hawks point guard Jeff Teague spent time in China this past summer and noted how big the NBA game is there and how the fans have very strong love for McGrady.t4o7868
Fortunately for Green’s shooting percentage, this Celtics team isn’t reliant on players forcing things on offense. Practically every player on this team outside of Rajon Rondo and Darko Milicic plays two or more positions. That means sometimes the Celtics will have a size advantage, sometimes they’ll have a speed advantage, but they always have to be cognizant of who they’re matched up with.
