I'm glad this happened when it did. I was depressed watching this team. So many inexcusable things happened because of him.
I was gonna say that the only thing sad about him being gone is he was the last part of the team from when I started watching NBA and the Knicks full-time (2008), but Jeffries is with the team, so whatever. I finally felt good about the time again last night.
Every front office that sides with a player against a coach is in for some big **** storm, regardless of who the coach is. This is Dolan's call again (lack of willingness to trade Melo). Whenever he decided something, we were in for a mess even though it looked promising to some at first (e.g. signing Melo).
