08:35 AM ET 04.07 | Isiah Thomas went to Florida International University to rehab his image as a means to try to get back into the NBA, preferably with the Knicks. But his 26-65 record as a college coach, marginal increase in home attendance (1,100 per game) and subsequent firing yesterday by FIU hasn't yet done the trick. According to sources, James Dolan isn't ready to name Thomas to a formal Knicks position. The Post reported last summer the Knicks owner still maintains a friendship with Thomas but was disappointed his compadre spoke publicly about wanting Donnie Walsh's position and believed he was secretly lobbying with select media members.

Right now, his son is doing better than he is. Go away, Isiah Sr.

I don't understand why Dolan has a hard one for Isiah Thomas. Didn't Thomas run the Knicks into the ground when he ran them? Didn't Isiah sign some of the worst players to some of the worst contracts? Wasn't the Knicks under Isiah's leadership and lost a sexual harassment lawsuit?

Yeah those were good times for the Knicks. Bring him back.

Funny story of the day:So, I woke up early this morning and started to make coffee like any good American, right? I took out the coffee filter and am washing it out because I like fresh coffee and not old coffee grounds. I Start putting coffee in, pour some water in and hit brew. Go sit down and start working on my latest story in front of the computer. Hear it brewing and decide to go check on the progress being made on my java. What do I see in the kitchen sink?The coffee filter. LOL.

Getting old?

This is a symptom.
