Pistons Targeting Isiah

"While Knicks fans fret about the possibility of Isiah Thomas returning to New York, the Detroit Pistons are considering Thomas for their vacant head coaching position, according to league sources. Thomas is not the leading candidate, sources say, but he is on Detroit's short list along with Mike Woodson, Kelvin Sampson and his former Pistons teammate Bill Laimbeer. Thomas, currently the head coach at Florida International University, made headlines this past weekend after the Knicks announced on Friday that Donnie Walsh would not return as the club's president and general manager. Because of Thomas' close relationship with Knicks owner James Dolan, there was speculation that Thomas could regain control of the Knicks.  Sources close to the Knicks' situation insist that Thomas will not be re-hired as the team's president or general manager and Thomas told ESPNNewYork.com's Ian O'Connor on Friday that he has "no desire to return" to the Knicks as president or as Walsh's replacement. Thomas served as the New York's president in a controversial reign from 2003-2008 that left him among the most hated sports figures in recent New York history. That is not the case, however, in Detroit, where Thomas led the Pistons to back-to-back championships in 1989 and 1990. Widely regarded as the greatest player in franchise history, the Hall of Famer could return to a club that has suffered through three straight losing seasons."
What happened to GZA Dumars? This guy couldn't do anything wrong a few years ago, I just hope this is some kind of joke. I don't get the "he's our guy" argument, when he shows up and completely bombs, it'll suck less cause he won a couple titles for us 20 years ago? Probably getting ahead of my self but I just don't want this conversation to continue one step further.
