Isiah Thomas back in the cream and crimson

  • 08/25/2008 4:30 pm in

In the aftermath of his coaching debacle with the New York Knicks, Isiah Thomas is apparently back in the fold in Bloomington helping to rebuild the program he once led to a national championship. Via a tipster, here’s a link to Isiah hamming it up with Christian Watford, who attended the Elite Camp this weekend and is considering the Hoosiers, Kentucky, Louisville, Memphis and Alabama.

From all indications, this past weekend was an excellent first step in putting some of the pieces of a fractured program back together. The Elite Camp yielded a commitment from 2011 guard Matt Carlino, several former players (D.J. White, Brian Evans and Thomas) helped work the camp and the day ended Saturday with a dinner in French Lick in an effort to reunite former players. Even though all former players and coaches were invited, Bobby Knight and Kelvin Sampson apparently forgot to RSVP.

Editor’s Note: You may have noticed the change in the author bylines on Inside the Hall. Big A, PostmanE and PostmanR will now be known by Alex, Eamonn and Ryan.

    My friend saw Crean, DJ, and Isiah all at the HPER. Unfortunately, I arrived in Bloomington a day late.

    I'm not a fan of Isiah the coach or Isiah the executive, but I am a HUGE fan of Isiah the IU Basketball Booster.

    What about Isiah the basketball player? He was one of the greatest.

    One of the greatest point guards of all-time. You have to respect that.
