"Rooting For Isaiah?" WTF!

I must confess, I did not hear the actual conversation between Wilbon and Kornheiser on PTI, but the on-screen headline stopped me in my tracks.

“Rooting For Isaiah?”

Of course, this was a discussion keyed off of Isaiah Thomas and his D-1 coaching debut for Florida International.

I'm sorry. “Rooting” for him?

Are you fucking crazy?

Let's root for penis cancer while we're at it?

What is it, exactly, about this smiling charlatan Isaiah, which makes such a discussion even possible? Root for him? Fuck him.

Isaiah Thomas is a certified shitbag. He's a lying, salary stealing, convicted sexual harasser. He's a bully, a fraud, a team wrecker, and a downright bad person.

There is nobody, repeat NOBODY, who publicly calls themselves his friend.

And yet.....

PTI somehow trotted out the question. Perhaps I should go back and listen to the conversation. But even if I did, I don't think it matters.

The answer, is a loud, unequivocal NO! You can't root for him. Not in any way. He's a walking lottery winner to even have this job. And who cares how little it pays, or how he agreed to give back much of that salary thanks to his robbery of the Knicks.

Personally, I am rooting for Isaiah Thomas to go 0-32 this year, get ejected from a dozen or more games, and to land Florida International on 10 year NCAA probation.

Seriously. Fuck him. Please stop putting him and his garbage basketball team on TV because it is somehow a “story.” This is the biggest dead-end, non-story, since Greg Paulus decided to play QB for Syracuse after a mediocre point guard career at Duke.

How's that media fascination going these days? Uh huh.

Okay. Rant over.


  1. Screw the 4-letter network. They lost credibility long ago when they championed the rights of the poor NFL players who have to hide their homosexuality. Whatever your political view on that is, how can that be a $#!*ing story??
    Thanks, been waiting to get that off my chest for awhile.
    Oh, and screw Olbermann while we're at it. You're telling me Rush is too controversial for sports TV but he isn't? Pu-freaking-lease!

  2. What the hell did Zeke ever do to you? Did he coach the Redskins or something?

  3. I saw the segment. Wilbon likes Isaiah because they're both from Chicago and grew up at around the same time. If that's his reason for liking him, it's not much of an endorsement.

    Don't worry. I don't see Isaiah even lasting this season. He'll pull an Iverson and feel he's being dissed for some lame reason.
