Isiah proves failure can be a virtue

Isiah Thomas received a multi-year contract extension from the New York Knicks and has been told in light of recent improvements that his job is no longer on the line this season. Clearly Isiah has benefited from attending Matt Millen's "How to Spin Failure into Extensions" Seminar held in Detroit each offseason. Thomas is now free to trade away David Lee, Channing Frye, or any of the other promising young players on the roster for high salaried players that are past their prime and reluctant to play hard in non-contract years. There are a few players that fit that bill that might be available this summer, but one clear cut favorite is Vince Carter. Other trade candidates include Antoine Walker, Jason Richardson, and Corey Maggette, all of whom should fit well into the current glut of SGs and SFs on the team. Isiah plans on unearthing another gem in the 2nd round of this years draft in order to use as trade bait in 2009 when Shaq comes on the market again. Let's see how long it takes for Isiah's job to be on the line again. The over-under is set at the length of time it took for him to bankrupt the CBA.
