"He was lied to," one person familiar with the situation said yesterday after Knicks owner James Dolan announced Walsh will leave his post after June 30 and become a consultant to the team next season.
become a consultant?... what a joke... in order to reign Donnie in and not let him say anything negative, hence keeping the typical Dolan blackout in effect.
...when Walsh got the contract documents in recent days, there were addendums regarding the power structure with which he was uncomfortable. It became the final straw in his tumultuous relationship with Dolan.
addendums... such b*ll****. adding something to a contract at the last minute, is just bad business, conniving crap. see Duplicity...
The wording in the contract did not give Walsh full and final authority to hire and groom his successor -- which was something he sought. The source said Walsh was offered a downgrade in salary to roughly $2.5 million after making in the $4.5M range this past season.
"The 40-percent paycut was an insult but money had nothing to do with it," the individual said. "It was more insulting that he didn't believe he'd have the full autonomy to run the basketball."
how about Doh!-lan gets a pay cut? come on now, how insulting! Donnie's going to get less money and STILL not have autonomy to make decisions, knowing Doh!-lan can still butt in at last minute whenever he wants?
NO WONDER DONNIE'S LEAVING!
He was treated with disrespect," the source said. "Dolan would yell at him."
major diss! we've got a damn prick running the franchise. makes me so sick.
