I don't understand how someone (in the public eye) that performes there job so poorly and by the way making more money than God could ever get mad at anyone bringing up the facts. If you or me preformed our jobs that poorly we'd be flippin burgers for a living........... Signed the "CBA"

Are you talking about Isiah or the BSG? Deadspin has been covering this story too.

with the pats losing in such an embarrassing fashion, i think simmons has probably endured more pain in the last week than zeke could ever lay on him

i think Isiah has other Bigger things to worry about other than people criticizing him. Come on man leave the pats alone, it all went downhill after that "brilliant" Pass interference call.

Thomas is an egotistical a$$, but then, he's not the only GM or team pres who's blind to how badly they've screwed up (Matt Millen come to mind?). Isiah should follow the example set by his former teammate Joe Dumars, who was a classier player and certainly is a classier team exec.

I'm actually shocked that Thomas knows who bill is. Even more shocked that he actually cares what he thinks about him. Maybe it's time to spend more time on the knicks big guy.

my favorite Sports Guy, I think you'd like to know that Isiah Thomas is planning to take revenge on you. Today on the Stephen A. Smith show on ESPN Radio here in New York, Thomas said if "I ever meet this guy Bill Simmons, it won't be good for him." In other words, I think he's planning on signing you. -- Dan Goodman, New York

My favorite part of this is that Smith apparently didn't know who Bill Simmons is. Stephen's pretty well-versed in sports opinionmakers, huh?

Stephen A. Smith is far too busy picking out suits and trying out witty rejoinders to keep up with every star in the sports journalism firmament, my friend. Sla - va Med - va - den - ko, indeed.

Stephen A. Smith is far too busy ... trying out witty rejoinders Then where are they? He might want to start using them in that snoozefest of a show he's on, or that other snoozefest of a show he's on.
