The New Year hasn't arrived yet, and New York Knicks owner James Dolan nearly dropped the ball already. Isiah Thomas who has led the Knicks to the lottery on a yearly basis was willing to part ways with the franchise if a new contract wasn't offered to him promptly. It is safe to assume that James Dolan understood what could ensue if that were to happen and acted accordingly.
"Would you want to lose this guy?" said Dolan while playing his guitar. "Look at that smile...if that smile isn't worth a 7 year extension, then I'm in the wrong country".
The team is just glad that this ordeal is over and elated that their beloved coach isn't going anywhere.
"That smile is like a Big Mac and fries," said Center, Eddy Curry. When asked about a milkshake, Eddy Curry smiled and replied, "I only dream of Big Macs and fries...I just want to go out there and win the lottery".
Isiah Thomas was unavailable for comment, but did have the decency to leave a word for the public to be recited by star forward Malik Rose:
"I've had bullets fly over my head and now I have a 7 year extension. I grew up in a rough neighborhood where I had guns pointed at my face. I know that all you bitches love to see my smile, so get used to it".
Word has leaked out that at the end of his new 7 year contract, Isiah Thomas plans to sign superstars Tim Duncan and Shaquille O'Neal to max deals.
