Ever since Hall of Fame point guard Isiah Thomas took over as the President of Basketball Operations of the New York Knicks, he has been spared stinging criticism. Zeke is king. Zeke is flawless. Zeke is a genius. All of these plaudits have contributed to his already massive ego. The addition of Jamal Crawford in light of Allan “100 Million Dollar Man” Houston’s knee problems? Prescient. Trezor Ariza, the human pogo stick from UCLA, stolen in the second round of June’s draft? Another miracle performed by the prophet Isiah. Such excitement over the addition of Ariza and Crawford led to unrealistic expectations.
