Check out the introduction Isiah got at his Florida International University press conference:
“We are excited to have Isiah Thompson join the FIU family,” said FIU President Modesto A. Maidique. “This is bigger than basketball and bigger than athletics. Having a nationally-recognized coach like Isiah at FIU will have a positive impact on our university as a whole, helping us achieve additional national exposure.”
A fitting slap in the face for one of the biggest douchebags to ever play, coach and manage in the NBA. I give him one year at Florida International.
I don’t care that he’s giving up his salary. The Knicks still owe him $12 million. He wanted back in the spotlight so badly, he probably made a huge donation to the school to get the job.
