    Source tells TKB Walsh was "caught off guard" when informed by Dolan that he wouldn't come to terms...one of the bigger issues was media.

    Dolan wanted Walsh to avoid media more. Walsh declined...

    New York Knicks owner James Dolan has sided with coach Mike D'Antoni in his ongoing feud with president/general manager Donnie Walsh.

    I wonder if this has been on the cards since DW's option wasn't exercised at the end of April. If DW had to go (how ever he has left - I wonder exactly how mutual it was) I'm kinda glad he's sticking around as a consultant as hes been around the league for years which can only be beneficial to whoever comes in as GM.

    I love this team too much to watch Isiah destroy it again.

    What I've been saying all along. If Dolan has his druthers, he's not paying 2 coaches this season.

    Wow. Just...WOW...He's the ****ing GM of the team -- he needs to touch base with the media on ocassion...Dude made himself accessible w/o going overboard, at least that's how I saw it..I don't ever remember Donnie pulling a Mark Cuban out there...This is why they severed ties? Donnie's involvement with the damn media??? Gotta be more to it than this..

    All I know is that we had the best GM this team has seen in a LONG, LONG time and Jimmy went and ****ed it up GOOD.

    I love this team, truly, but I'm with some of you -- if Isaiah comes back, I really might lose interest...

    I know they said Grunwald for now, but what do you guys see happening long-term now? Warkentien? H2O? Gabriel?? Outside the organization? Kevin Pritchard? Tom Penn? Rich Cho??? Jesus, what a mess...Thanks a lot Jimmy. Was having a real nice day too...

    Donnie Walsh is an old school professional. Even if it was an ugly break up, you'll never find out through Donnie. This "consulting" thing could very well be PR and nothing more.

    Donnie's going from That Dude to having no power. Having Donnie as a consultant doesn't work if Allen Houston becomes the puppet GM and Dolan pulls a bunch of BS to ruin the team. Donnie has no veto power anymore.

    Welcome to the Knicks, where BULL**** happens!

    What next? Isiah as GM and a 4 year contract extention for D'Antoni?

    Oh let's sign Jerome James on a MLE and trade our next 2 first round picks for Thabeet...

    Bull**** man, Donnie wasn't perfect but he was the only one who actually used his brains on the Knicks.

    If Isiah is our GM next year and D'Antoni gets an extension I'm done with the Knicks!

    This is actually not that surprising to me. The Melo deal stunk of Dolan. There was no way the patient, poker-face, Donnie Walsh would have f*cked up that deal so badly like that. Only the idiot Dolan could pull something like that.

    When Dolan raised ticket prices 49% only 1 week after the deal I knew it was him. It was about money, that's it.

    I said this 2 days before the Melo deal went down: "Melo's greed and Dolan's stupidity are going to ruin any chances of the Knicks winning a championship."

    This franchise is forever doomed as long as Dolan is the owner.
