This Post Is Just Between Isiah and Me

So it appears that along with being one of the worst GMs in sports history, Isiah Thomas is also a crazy man. Last season he challenged ESPN writer Bill Simmons to a fight in an alley, and now, he's taken ESPN analyst Greg Anthony to task for failing to show the Knicks favoritism in his commentary. It appears that Thomas is none to pleased that Anthony ripped Thomas for his selection of Renaldo Balkman on draft day. Of course, every other analyst had the same reaction to a selection that by all accounts came at least 20 picks too early; but Thomas is upset because he feels Anthony should have responded differently because he is a former Knick.

"This so-called former Knick, on draft night with millions of people watching, had the audacity to take me to task on a player that I'm pretty sure he had never seen before in his life," Thomas said. "I just thought he was very unfair to the Knicks organization. It would be different had he not worn a Knick uniform. But for a guy who claims to have been a Knick, to treat the Knicks the way he treated us that night ... I know a Piston would never do that. A Celtic would never do that. A Laker would never do that. It wouldn't happen. It just goes to show you what we're dealing with."

So what is it exactly that you're dealing with Zeke- Objective commentary?! Dear lord, that's rough. I'm sorry that Greg Anthony was more concerned with actually giving honest analysis rather than show his loyalty to the Knickerbockers. Also, I'm sure a Piston, Bill Laimbeer, said something critical of the Pistons last season. I can't say it with 100% certainty because I don't really pay attention when Laimbeer talks, but I'm sure it must have happened at least once. Also that Charles Barkley fella has been known to speak his mind from time to time. Besides, anyone should know by now that if they want favorable treatment from ESPN, they should get a job with the Boston Red Sox.

Thomas continued to throw insults at Greg Anthony via the media:
"Unlike Greg Anthony, I do have respect for others."
"We all were in a funk last year ... Greg Anthony was in a funk."
"Greg Anthony should never ever be in a position to question myself on anything about basketball. I do remember the kind of player he was."

Later in the article, Thomas says he has not spoken to Anthony about this. However, in the midst of his diatribe to the media, Thomas clarified that, "This is between Greg and I."

So to recap: Thomas is upset because he thinks team loyalty should take precedence over professional integrity, even tho Zeke himself is a former Piston who now works for the Knicks and whose job it is to beat his old team. Then he claims the issue is a personal, private matter between him and Anthony, even tho he's just vented the entire thing to the national media and has never even had a conversation with Anthony regarding the matter? Has a team ever been coached by an insane person before? Aside from Martin Lawrence in "Rebound?" Oh, it's going to be a fun year at the Garden this season.

(update: thanks to readers for pointing out that I kept referring to Greg Anthony as Greg Anderson. I'm auditioning for a job with Fox, and I thought it would help me fit in to mess up some names. The errors have been corrected.)
