Isiah Thomas was already having a pretty bad week, what with the Knicks courting his replacement before they’ve even fired him. But today comes news that his approval rating in New York State is a meager 16 percent. To put that in perspective, there’s also news today that President Bush’s approval rating has hit an all-time low. At 31 percent. So not only is Thomas likely a lame-duck coach (and GM and team president), he’s barely half as popular as the widely scorned president. Something tells us he’ll leave that off the résumé he’s likely putting together as we speak. —Joe DeLessio
