After two games, both losses, the most recent a 34-point home humdinger to the Celtics, who were fresh from two straight demoralizing defeats in Boston, Wilkens' long-time loyalist, Dick (no longer at the) Helm, was replaced on the bench by personnel director Brendan Suhr, among the all-time league leaders in disloyalty.

Suhr, I can speak from first hand knowledge, has made a career out of subverting coaches and people who've given him jobs, chances and support. Hubie Brown was the first to experience his unfaithfulness. Despite the fact Brown gave Brendan entrée into the league as his Hawks assistant, Suhr constantly badmouthed Hubie behind his back; Brown stopped talking to him years ago.

Suhr's back-stabbing and betrayal has shadowed him almost everywhere he's gone, the lone exception being his tours under Chuck Daly with the Pistons, Nets, and Magic. His last pit stop in Detroit lasted only a matter of months in 2000 before Joe Dumars, who never utters a disparaging word about anybody, severed their relationship when Suhr allegedly undercut head coach George Irvine.

When good old Zeke took the helm, my days as a Knicks fan ended.

I still can't really understand why such a historic franchise like the Knicks have someone as poor a track record like Isiah Thomas at the head of the team.
