It's come to this. James Dolan is so bored at Knicks games games, he's brought along Winkles the sockpuppet to entertain him. Of course, he could just replace Isiah Thomas with a more competent coach, but he clearly wouldn't do that now, after all they've been through. After giving him a $24 million extension. After Isiah himself said he was apt. Himself! So it appears that downtrodden Knicks fans will just have to ride out ... actually, let me finish that thought after I take a sip of orange juice:

Garden chairman James Dolan recently told confidants that he knows a coaching change must be made and that he is preparing to do just that.

Wasn't expecting that.

Now I must know which one of Dolan's advisors slept in this morning and forgot to cut out the NBA glance in the daily paper, replacing it instead with a coupon for Honey Nut Cheerios.
