Donnie Walsh named Knicks President, Basketball Operations

April 2ndWalsh Named Knicks President, Basketball Operations – Official Press Release here
There is a savior and his name is Donnie Walsh
(let go of the ball Jimmy, it is mine now)
You can go back to saying that name with pride again very soon!

Announced March 24th:

Indiana Pacers chief executive Donnie Walsh will leave the team after this season and a source told ESPN late Monday that he will land with the New York Knicks.

Walsh is expected to sign a three-year, $15 million contract with New York at the end of this season to oversee their basketball operations division. The source did not know what would become of current Knicks president of basketball operations and head coach Isiah Thomas once Walsh joined the Knicks.

I know what will happen to Isiah Thomas:

He will be out of a job & Knicks fans can & will be proud of THEIR team once again

We will have a Basketball Legend running the Knicks.



Good riddance Isiah and please take all of your over the salary cap problems, bad draft picks, trades and contract buyouts with you.

Let me know if you need me to write you a letter of reference.
