Ok, clearly I owe Isiah Thomas an apology. In the past week, the revitalized Knickerbockers have won four in a row, and three of ‘em were extended garbage-time blowouts (20, 28, and 29 points respectively.) Moreover, Thomas somehow convinced the Rockets to take Clarence Weatherspoon for Moochie Norris, which is a great deal for NY any way you cut it. Of course, the real test will come against real opponents (not just Miami and Orlando) early next month…but still, I’m quite surprised by the way Thomas has engineered this turnaround so quickly. Let’s hope it lasts.
