I’m not sure if David Stern gave the go ahead for the Knicks to rehire Isiah Thomas because he and Zeke are good friends or because he secretly hates the Knicks. But whatever the reason, he did. So while Knicks fans were stuck wondering how this could be happening, Stern sat quietly knowing exactly how all this could be happening. And he finally decided to spill the beans.
Commissioner David Stern finally took blame for the Isiah Thomas fiasco, confessing he gave James Dolan the OK to hire the reviled former Knicks president as a part-time consultant.
“It’s fair to say I missed the issue,” Stern said. “I told them they can do it. And when it was announced, my guy said it’s not allowed. I blew that one pretty good.
“It didn’t comply with our rules and ultimately wouldn’t have complied with NCAA rules.”
Yeah, it’s more than clear now that Stern secretly hates the Knicks.
