NBA Star/Goat of the Week – Week 21

NBA Star of the Week – Chris Paul

CP3

Don’t look now but the Hornets are back on top in the West

Chris Paul – Paul is making a strong push for MVP, leading the Hornets to a 5-game winning streak and the top seed in the Western Conference.  New Orleans has won 7 of 8 overall, including wins over Boston, San Antonio, the Lakers and Houston.  During the streak, Paul has averaged 24 points, 13 assists and 3 steals.  Anyone who thinks that these guys aren’t capable of winning the Western Conference come playoff time. better wake up.

NBA Goat of the Week – James Dolan

James Dolan

Don’t think we forgot about you, Knicks!

James Dolan – It has been far too long since I’ve posted something negative about the New York Knicks.  Well, apparently James Dolan came out this week and said that he would prefer to keep Isiah Thomas.  WHAT?!  How is this possible?  If i was a Knicks fan, I would demand an investigation.  Something is just wrong with whats going on with the Knicks.

NBA Goat of the Week

Isiah Thomas is not a good coach.

What does a guy have to do to get fired?

The New York Knicks – I predicted disaster this season for the Knicks (who didn’t?), but how could anyone have imagined that it would be this bad? How does Isiah still have a job? What is Dolan thinking? Here’s the latest rundown for the Knicks this week: 0 wins, 3 more losses, Eddy Curry benched and unhappy, Jamal Crawford inactive and unhappy, Marbury doing Marbury-type things, Roy Jones working out with the team… oh, and this.

NBA Goat of the Week

James Dolan and Isiah Thomas
Dolan is Apparently Asleep at the Wheel as Knicks Owner 

James Dolan – What is this guy thinking by not firing Isiah Thomas?  First of all, he should have never hired Isiah in the first place, but now that the Knicks have completely quit on their coach, Dolan still refuses to make the move to fire him.  Thursday’s 104-59 loss to the Celtics was the new low point for the laughingstock Knicks.
