Amare Stoudemire and Isiah Thomas Never Spoke

Never is there something involving Isiah Thomas that clarifies anything. It just gets more confusing, and difficult to understand. Every time.
So, remember when Isiah Thomas was apparently the guy who helped lure free agents to the Knicks? Donnie Walsh even said it about a month and a half ago. Here, look:

“Isiah helped us a lot in getting Amare,” Walsh said Saturday. “And he tried to help us get Joe Johnson and LeBron. He knew some of the people that were connected with some of the players, and he has a good reputation with the players and with the people that represent them. He was great.”

It’s why the Knicks almost signed him as a consultant. But today, Will Leitch over at New York Magazine spoke to Amare Stoudemire, and pretty much found out that Isiah had no role whatsoever in bringing Stoudemire to the Knicks. Here, look:

So, to be clear, you didn’t talk to him at ALL during this negotiating process with the Knicks?
Nope.

I don’t understand the world.
