The New York Daily News is reporting that the infamous man who single-handedly ran the New York Knicks franchise into the ground, Isiah Thomas, is still advising James Dolan extensively regarding free agent signings, especially the acquisition of Chris Paul.

He believes that the "street cred" he has for being a hall-of-fame point guard will aid the Knicks in their quest for CP3, and it seems that Dolan thinks so too.  For some reason that I cannot understand, he actually trusts the man who destroyed this team and made them irrelevant for an entire decade.

Bringing back Isiah Thomas would be the worst move in Knicks history, by far.  Even allowing him anywhere near this franchise is just asking for trouble.  Everything the Knicks have going for them right now will be ruined once again. 

If I were Knicks general manager, Donnie Walsh, I would leave the organization because Dolan is still using Thomas as an adviser. Hopefully Donnie is more resilient than I am.  Either way, this is just an asinine move by James Dolan.  Let's pray that the Knicks make it out of this unscathed.

What do you think? Should Donnie Walsh leave because of this?  Let me know in the comments below.
