Yea its totally premature. But I see why it was announced. Its all about momentum. The team's momentum has peaked with this news. But there is def a downside. If the Knicks collapse, or if we get swept w/o much of a fight, then I don't see how Dolan would be able to defend himself for rest of proffesional career. He would go down as one of the worst sports executives in United States history without a question.
I think it actually puts more pressure on Thomas... somehow his seat got a hell of alot hotter.
