Donnie Walsh To New York
The clock's ticking for Zeke as the Knicks agree to a deal with the Pacers Donnie Walsh. :)

This move further puts in doubt current president of basketball operations and head coach Isiah Thomas but he had nothing but good words to say about the man who gave him his first head coaching position.
"He's had a great career, he's one of the best who's ever done it," Thomas said before the Knicks lost to New Jersey to fall to 19-51 on the season. "I wish him great success and he's someone that I respect tremendously. He gave me my first coaching job and I truly do like him as a person and he's done a lot for the game."

nice, knicks go from bubonic plague to cancer, a slight upgrade indeed!! Donnie is a big factor in the absolute mess pacers have been in the last 5 years, and among many GM's is considered very overrated and he kisses media ass to get nice things said about him, good fit for the Knicks, kudos and GL!!!

Knicks gotta do something. Walsh was successful for years with the Pacers and has a good track record. So why not make a change? Better than keeping with Isiah Thomas.
