Interesting Isiah Quote

In the wake of the Knicks fourth straight loss, Isiah Thomas was deluged with questions about the Starbury situation. Now this could be the classic case of a quote being taken out of context, but on SNY this morning I heard Isiah say, "I've played with players I don't like and won with players I don't like." It seems to me that he is not so cryptically saying that he doesn't like Marbury. Again, this was just an excerpt of a longer statement, so there could have been a qualifier such as, "I like Stephon, but I've played with players I don't like..." or he could have just been talking in general about having to like the players on your team. However, the way the clip was cut it certainly seemed like Isiah was throwing Marbury under the bus.

(Editor's Note: Based on a comment I received, please allow me to clarify the above statement. I heard the quote in it's entirety as it aired, but I wonder if there was context to the quote which didn't make it to TV.)

It's wonderful for us readers to hear what you think you heard. I know you're a blogger, but why don't you make sure of what you heard before you make it part of the Googlesphere? But what can we expect from a guy who fell for an Opie and Anthony skit?

Sorry, allow me to clarify. I heard the quote in it's entirety as it aired, but I'm wonder if there was more context to the quote which didn't make it to TV.

Let's get this straight; None of us are responsible journalists here. Here are some blind items to illustrate the point...

What well-paid Indy defensive end is said be out with a foot injury, but is actually suffering from AIDS? I wish I could tell you, but I don't have permission to speak Freeney.

What one-balled, salt and pepper goateed free agent 3rd baseman stocks his locker with Nazi memorabilia? I don't know, but I've heard his most recent team was not in Lowelly position.

Which head coach of a major SoCal football program diddles his teenage daughter? Let's just say his family won't be Carrolling this Christmas.

You're getting better with the commas, Tremont, but I believe the correct punctuation here is a colon, not a semi-colon.

But I really dropped in to ask you guys something. You guys don't think Matt Damon is sexier than I am, do you?
