New York Knicks: Vin Baker wants to be a Knick. And, apparently, the Knicks wants Vin Baker."This is a person who's battling a disease," Isiah Thomas told the New York Post. "You're not talking about, quote, a bad person. If you're going to take a risk on anyone, this is the kind of guy you take a risk on. There's nothing in his family or background that would say he's a bad risk in terms of his person. If given the opportunity, we'll take the risk and try to support him and try to help him."
