"There were some gossip items in the tabloids today involving a party that Zach Randolph threw at The Plumm, which is a West Village hangout. Apparently Z-Bo was telling people he doesn't expect to be back with the Knicks next season."Clearly, Donnie Walsh has stated his desire to get under the cap by 2010, so it makes sense that he'll dump Z-bo the first chance he gets.
Frank Isola of the Daily News gives Michael Jordan a point in his apparent ongoing feud with long time rival Isiah Thomas.
Marc Berman has an easy explanation for the apparent snubbing of Patrick Ewing from the head coach consideration.
"With all due respect, Patrick, you were never a leader as a player. Why would you be considered a leader as a coach."We understand Patrick's treatment of the media over the years, but Ewing had plenty of leadership moments. How about playing on a torn achillies in 1999? I often hear a lot of negativity about Ewing's character, but his son was the ultimate team player at Georgetown so let's give is dad some a little credit. More importantly, ask yourselves this. If a 35-year-old Ewing were thrust into a lineup with this current bunch of Knicks, would they win 23 games?
My guess would be closer to 43.
