    Agreed. Dolan time and time again over the past decade has shown how incompetent of an owner he is. Trusting Isiah Thomas with decisions. Getting Amar'e for a highly overpaid contract when he should have signed for less. Hiring Dumb Toni who knows how to play team defense as well as I know Swahili (I don't).

    He got lucky that Melo wanted to play for the Garden and that Linsanity happened. And the fact that Knicks fans are the most loyal fans in basketball and still had good attendance records even when we sucked.

    This is a dizzying prospect...I didn't like the melo trade. I didn't like the curry trade. I didn't like the crawford trade. I didn't like fred weis draft pick. I liked the McGrady trade, but lebron never came...so it screwed us, in hind sight bad move.
    I didn't like trading david lee.
    jerome james signing.
    jared jeff part 1...part 2 seems good.
    dolan, isiah, d'antoni

    It all started with Mcdyess. Everything.

    Freak injury. Who knows how good he could have been and what moves we would have made to surround him.

    I've been meaning to say this at some point after reading all these debates on this forum. I've been seeing both sides of the Melo trade, one skewed towards him and one skewed against him and I think it is unfair to judge as of yet and I mean for both sides.

    For one, he was dragged into our team mid season and then didn't have a chance to work with the team in a lock out shortened season. You also have the fact that stat was injured for most of last year and barely showed up in the playoffs. And this year with the coaching change, lin's injury, shumpert being out the first game of the playoffs and stat deciding to vent his frustration on a fire extinguisher.

    On the flip side, u have his prior issues (on and off the court) with the nuggets and questionable work ethic, which I'm glad to see he is changing according to his twitter. Also you've seen that he didn't win a championship with the Nuggets at all since coming to the NBA although he did bring them to the Conference Finals. However, he was playing in a very strong Western Conference back then when you had the Lakers and Spurs both playing in their primes as well as the Mavericks and Suns.

    My point is that it's all speculation. This debate, the Lin debate, and the Stat debate. Their performances next year should decide all 3. We all know that. But for now, nothing we say means s**t because we haven't had a normal season yet. Just my

    Obvious choice for me is not hire Isiah Thomas bc we could have had so much more without him and we never would have signed or traded for once upon a time players who were now either injured or past their prime for future draft picks and we would never have drafted people like Renaldo Balkman when we had Rajon Rondo available.

    What else would u guys do?
    Jim Dolan. Change him and watch the good decisions flow...
