IFWT_Isiah Thomas

I know there’s millions of Knicks fans ready to buy Isiah Thomas’ plane ticket right now.  Thomas’ tenure and dismissal with the Knicks was controversial and widely hated but now he might head back to where he began, with the Detroit Pistons.

Thomas was drafted by the Detroit Pistons and formed the infamous “Bad Boys” squad.  Now reports say they want him to return as a general manager.

Just the man who deserves another chance to run a team.

That’s reportedly the logic of Detroit Pistons owner Tom Gores, who could be weeks from relieving Joe Dumars as general manager. Dumars’ contract expires after the season, and it’s difficult to see him returning in that capacity after the Pistons’ miserable season.

Mitch Lawrence of the New York Daily News:

“Gores is definitely looking at Isiah to replace Joe,” one league source said.

What [Gores] knows about pro basketball you can probably fit in a thimble, and he loves his stars. That goes for current ones (Josh Smith, who is said to have a direct pipeline to Gores) and former ones (there’s none bigger in the Motor City than Thomas, who led the Pistons to back-to-back titles in 1989 and 1990).
