    No, I'm not talking about the Arod deal..


    Isiah likes Vin, mum on Tim



    By FRANK ISOLA
    DAILY NEWS SPORTS WRITER

    LOS ANGELES - Isiah Thomas acknowledged that he is interested in signing Vin Baker, but the Knicks president refused to confirm that he had spoken to the Bucks about a deal that would send Keith Van Horn to Milwaukee for Tim Thomas.
    "That's a rumor and at this time of year you hear a lot of them," Thomas said yesterday.

    In order to make a Van Horn-Thomas swap work within the salary cap, other players would have to be added or the Knicks and Bucks would have to include a third team. Thomas and Van Horn were traded once before, on Draft night in 1997.

    The trade deadline is Thursday and the Bucks are somewhat reluctant to make a move that could mess with their chemistry. Thomas, on the other hand, is committed to revamping the Knicks' roster and wants to add athleticism.

    Thomas also wants to add a low-post scorer, which is why he has expressed interest in Baker, who was waived by the Celtics on Friday. Baker is expected to clear waivers on Wednesday and then would become a free agent. Baker has told friends he wants to play in New York.

    "I wouldn't rule anything out at this point," Thomas said.

    Yeah, we are crushed over that.

    Hey Jon, getting Pierce would be a better shot.

    Just look at my signature at those two shining LOmbardi's.

    The Yanks have not won and the Knicks are nowhere near winning. Ditto, the Mess, Rangers, Islan-duhs, Giants, and Jets. Oh yeah, MetroStars to.

    Ok my question is if baseball implemented a salary cap do you think the Yankees would be as competitive? Do you think the Yankees would have won all those Championships with a salary cap? No and NO. The Yankees "purchased" most of those Championships.

    And you would have preferred their players fell out of the sky for free?? How stupid are you Wiggy?? The Pats paid every player on their roster so I guess you could pretty much say they purchased their titles. Baseball has always been a spending league. Any team can do it. The fact that the Yankees generate more money than other teams is not their fault. I guess in your world they should just ban any team that comes from the greatest city on earth because gosh-darnit it just ain't fair to the MIL/MIN/MON teams. The Yankees make more money, and they spend more money. That's the way the league apparantly want it right now or else it would have been changed years ago.

    And considering BOS has the 2nd highest payroll, couldn't it be assumed they bought all their........oh wait..nevermind.

    Ahhh bahhhh...................well I would never argue anything for the Red Sox sake. They plain ole' don't get it done so no argument there. Football is the greatest sport hands down. Salary cap and parity. Can't ask for much more.

    I agree that MLB needs a salary cap but to discredit the Yankees accomplishments as nothing more that "buying their pennants" is flat out ignorant. The league allows teams to spend as much as they want or can. The Yankees can and want to spend more. How could you fault them for doing that?? Should Stienbrenner just pocket all the profits like alot of other teams do?? Did you even know that MIL had their taxpayers foot the bill for a brand new stadium while they cried poverty. Then they proceeded to get more money from the Yanks thanks to the luxury tax. So what did they end up doing??? Cut a ton of salary and proceeded to be content on fielding a ****ty team while ownership pocketed the profits. That is what really hurts MLB, not what the Yankees do.
