    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...
    True, it's not worth harping on. The deal is done, and we move on with our new team, Melo and Amare.

    It's only worth digging up now as an example of Dolan meddling in front office matters that he has no savvy with.

    I don't consider it lying. It's professionalism and PR sense.

    It's why Walsh is so respected by his peers and NBA higher-ups.

    walsh would of said "no comment" like he has always done....he is not a lyer.. can you tell me one time walsh has lied...thats why he is respected..,he would flat out say..."its none of ur business"

    That said, it doesn't matter who we hire if Dolan continues to meddle, and not let the GM do his job.

    so whats the difference between dolan and cuban??? cuban doesnt meddle...of corse he does..because he is a smart business man...dolan has his flaws.,,,but all owners meddle...its just magnified in ny....steinbreener...meddled....

    Did anyone else hear Isiah being interviewed on ESPN? Did Isiah say Walsh did a good job for US? This doesnt bode well for us Knick fans...

    In that situation, "no comment" is basically confirming the speculation.

    Look, every Knicks reporter of any value states it as a given that Dolan stepped in and meddled with the Melo deal. Walsh is a good company man and will not give his boss that kind of heat in the media. If you want to say that makes him a liar, then fine.

    The difference is wins. Dolan makes stupid decisions that blow up his GM's plans, or cripple the team, or make the franchise a laughing stock, and so on.

    And a good owner wouldn't have panicked and called Kroenke to say "You can have whatever you want!"

    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.
    But Phil had never been an NBA coach before the Bulls hired him and thats my point. Mark Jackson had a much more decorated NBA career than Phil did and that counts for something....

    I never said that.

    I'm saying that Walsh may have been able to get Melo for cheaper.
    I'm saying that Dolan stuck his nose into Walsh's plan, screwed things up a little, and Walsh didn't like it.

    The deal is the deal, and I'm not complaining about Melo for Mozgov. My point is that Dolan is a joke of an owner. He doesn't just get involved...he meddles. There's a difference there.

    I don't think there's anyway Isiah comes back. I think Dolan understands what a failure he was on all levels and also what the ramifications of bringing him back would be.
