I've been looking forward to Bill Simmons' NBA preview for a week or so now primarily for the joy of witnessing him rip Knicks GM (and future Knicks coach) Isiah Thomas. Sometimes it seems Simmons alone holds Thomas accountable for his disastrous stints as Raptors GM (building a team around Damon Stoudamire), Pacers coach (losing a play-off series to the inferior Celtics by having Al Harrington attempt to guard Paul Pierce for long stretches and playing Ron Mercer at point guard in the 4th quarter), and CBA executioner (no parenthetical necessary).
So I read it and now I'm confused. Perhaps my sister could unpack the following reference for me: "From a competitive standpoint, even the Real World/Road Rules Challenge isn't as lopsided as the NBA right now. And the Knicks don't even have someone like Tonya."
