Title: President of Basketball Operations/Coach, New York Knicks
Pro: After taking over coaching duties from Larry Brown, the Knicks won 10 more games than last year! Thomas can also spot young talent: as Toronto's GM in the 90s, drafted Tracy McGrady, and young Knicks David Lee and Renaldo Balkman should have solid careers.
Con: The Knicks still finished a lousy 33-49 in an awful Eastern Conference. Has an uncanny knack for acquiring mediocre, un-tradeable players with fat contracts. In a brief run as CBA commissioner, Thomas mismanaged an entire league into the ground.
