Is it at the point now where you really have to wonder if Isiah has gone completely Machiavellian? At this point, he has to realize he's screwed with the roster he built. Now, why draft a quality player who could develop and make the next GM and coach look good, thus making Isiah look like a bigger clown (tough to do but theoretically possible at least). Instead, he makes the team worse, thus, when the Knicks still suck in 2010, Isiah can try to rehabilitate himself by stating the Knicks stunk before him and stunk after him, so it really wasn't his fault at all. Combining short term memory with stupid new money, Isiah might be able to con(vince) some new owner to give him a front office job again at that point, and the amusement begins yet again.

I was a bit puzzled by the Suns strategy of selling off their draft picks, as the team could use some depth. The explanation was to save cap space so we can keep Tim Thomas. Oops, that did not work so well.

Anyway, at least we picked up another first rounder next year, when the draft should be deeper, I believe that gives us 3 (our own, Atlanta's (as long as it is not in the top 3, and Cleveland's (via Boston).

Hmm. I know the Pistons created a bunch of future cap room by swapping Corliss' contract for Coleman's, and I know Larry Brown loved DC in Philly, but I really wonder if they're kidding themselves by thinking DC can be Rasheed v. 2.0 for them.
