If the Knicks had managed to keep Riley we wouldn't be looking at nearly 50 years w/o a championship. One of the great coaches and executives in the NBA.
The 15M/5yr deal that he turned down from Checketts seems like chicken feed when compared to what Dolan gave Phil and Fisher.
exactly...for some reason it seemed like dolan low balled him when riley wanted some sort of stake in the Knicks.. well why not give it to him? he was already a legend by time he got to the knicks. Again, foolish and shortsighted ownership... Losing riley was HUGE!!!
