According to the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, a copy of which I carry at all times, a delusion is defined as: "A false belief based on incorrect inference about external reality." There are three photos of Isiah Thomas next to the entry. Just prior to the Knicks' a 107-97 loss to the Sacramento Kings on Wednesday (remember that the Kings were playing without Ron Artest, Mike Bibby and Kevin Martin), Isiah predicted that, A. The Knicks would win a championship, and B. The team wouldn't be very active before the trading deadline, because no help was needed.
"I know people will laugh even more at me, but I'm hell bent on getting this accomplished and making sure that we get it done," Thomas told the New York Daily News. "And I'm not leaving until we get it done. I believe that one day we will win a championship here. And I believe a couple of these guys will be a part of that. And I believe I'll be a part of that."
Well, you're not the only person with fervent beliefs, my friend.
