how dumb is isiah thomas?

Today's Bill Simmons article:

"A well-placed source tells me that Isiah Thomas is prepared to trade
Channing Frye and Penny Hardaway to Denver for Kenyon Martin and Earl
Watson, but only if Martin agrees to an MRI on his surgically repaired
knee. If Martin's knee is in good shape, the Knicks are calling off the
deal. If the knee is in rough shape, the deal is on. If the knee is in
such terrible shape that the doctor says something like, "Wow, there's
a good chance K-Mart might walk with a limp for the rest of his life,"
the Knicks will throw in an unconditional No. 1 in 2009 as well as Nate
Robinson and $3 million dollars. So stay tuned."

It doesn't even seem like a stretch that this is what runs through Isiah's head!
