He also fleeced Minnesota by orchestrating a Randy Foye (!!) for Brandon Roy draft-day deal, getting Rudy Fernandez and James Jones using the trade exception, and making us look bad by dumping Z-Bo's monster contract on us (although it ended up being OK since Channing Frye was...not as good as we thought he could be).

    There's also Chris Mullin and Allan Houston waiting in the wings

    One can only imagine that Isiah right now is begging Dolan for his job......

    Dolan was dumb enough to get rid of Walsh then lets assume he is dumb enough to bring back Isiah....

    The guy put him in Cap hell and had a 12 million dollar lost lawsuit against him...

    sorry to say but Isiah will be back and I want to f"in Puke.

    Good choice on Kevin Pritchard

    Hopefully Pritchard is smart enough to fire D'Antoni's ass and get us Mark Jackson as coach

    A sports owner has input on long term plans, progress, expectations, monetary issues, hirings and firings, even what players they plan to acquire and whether they fit. Of course a sports owner has a LOT of input, control and veto power.

    But that doesn't mean you take over a transaction at the eleventh hour and overrule your President regarding the details of negotiations. The small stuff like that is why you have Walsh in the first place. That's where you trust your employee to do his job. If he fails, then you come down on him hard. But Dolan went in, took over, overpaid, and basically castrated Walsh.

    Allegedly, of course. But that's what I'll believe because Dolan is Dolan and Walsh is Walsh.

    What is this fascination with Marc Jackson? How do you know he can coach?

    Because everything he says is the opposite of D'Antoni.

    THANK YOU.

    Dude has never coached at any level. I didn't know the job was so damn easy that some guy who's been off the court for 7 years can just step in and coach at the highest level in the world.

    Enough with Mark Jackson.

    We'll never know the real story, but what they agreed to report is friction between the length of the contract Walsh was being offered.

    Hey it is what it is. The only thing left to do is get a seasoned replacement GM and either let Dantoni go or let him coach his final year. I just hope Walsh and the scouting staff stay the course on getting us a good player in the draft, as well as a key off-season acquisition.

    You don't install light fixtures and sinks and **** before you set the foundation and get your load bearing supports up. Gallo, Chandler, Felton, Mozgov, Curry (on the bench) means absolutely nothing if they're not actually supporting something.

    If the best record Bulls, with the #1 defense, and MVP, getting handled due to lack of impactful players on the roster...if that doesn't show you that formula to be complete nonsense in the current NBA...especially when the Bulls repeated the same mistake the Cavs made the season before....then your eyes aren't opened wide enough.

    The Bulls are also in a tough spot too, because their best bet to get what they need is to find a suitable trade situation for Boozer without compromising their depth...good luck with that. No one is taking on Boozer without some compensation coming along with him and his fresh contract and increasingly weakening play over the course of the season. Their cap situation gets tight next season with Noah's extension kicking in, and then they have to re-up Rose.

    The Knicks are in a position to snatch up one of 3 all-star caliber players, Dwight, CP3, or Deron...you mean to tell me that not one of those guys will try to force their way to a team with STAT & Melo? All three will be content with going/staying elsewhere and not take advantage of the opportunity to form an elite team?

    I'd rather be in a position where we have 2 elite players and room for a 3rd, as opposed to another team with a great player and nice players surrounding him and not winning rings. Depth is overrated if the other team is lighting you up and you, with all of your depth, can't answer the bell.

    I hate Dolan for some of the dickhead **** that he's done in the past, but getting 2 of the starting 10 players in the All-star game is a success every with way.
    Great post right here dead on. I swear I am soooooo tired of hearing about what we "gave up" to get Melo. Denver got chased out of the playoffs just like we did.

    I wasn't the biggest Walsh fan looking at coach/draft decisions and was disapointed with Amare. But the Melo trade elevated Walsh in my eyes and I am sorry he is leaving. He got us 2 elite players and cap room for a third. We should be competative for a long time. Thanks Donnie...

    Phil Jackson had years and years of coaching before the NBA. He worked his ass up to where he is now.

    My nickname for Mark Jackson is "Captain Obvious" when he does broadcasting. His specialty is to just repeat exactly what happens on the floor. He doesn't examine plays or talk about how things could have been drawn up differently. He just states the biggest and clearly obvious facts in as loud a voice as possible.

    If he wants to coach, he should be an assistant first or work his way up from a crappy franchise. You just don't hand the reins over to a freshman coach when you have 2 established stars on your team.

    Hands down, the only real good coach available is Rick Adelman. His teams always have a better record than anyone predicts and his guys play hard all the time.
