Isiah Thomas is dying.

Hold on just a sec! I didn't make this up. He said it himself (emphasis mine):

"If there is one thing that I hope all of you know about me or will learn about me, I fight `til I die. It's not about giving up or quitting. To me, it's win or die. And I literally mean death. I don't mean walk away. I mean death. That's how I approach it. We got a job to do here. We're going to get it done. I'm confident we have the right players. I'm confident we have the right people and we'll dig our way out of this. It's been done before. We've done it before. We did it last year and we¹ll do it again this year."

The Knicks are 6-14 and spiraling into oblivion. We should expect Isiah to be coughing up blood on the sidelines within a few games, no?

Also..."we did it last year"? Did what? Crapped their way into the lottery? He's confident (mortally so) that he can re-achieve that level of failure? Am I supposed to be encouraged?
