Pictures or a wire tap? More likely just two retards realized they needed someone with half a brain to get things in the right direction before they jumped back in to play again.

No lie, if Knicks fans allow Isaiah to return without serious protest I no longer want to hear Knick fan considered one of the Top 2 fan bases in all the NBA.

That's complete bullshit. I know Dolan's a tool but if he can pull this off and spit in the faces of those fans and that Knick tradition it's a sad day for the state of that fan base.
Playing here is the closest thing to heaven. Really, I mean it's amazing to be in a place where the fans truly cherish their football team and stick behind them win or lose. We players love them, too. I feel a sense of accomplishment playing here, we are a special breed of football players with a great opportunity." ~ tOSU LB Brian Rolle

Woj is reporting that one of the biggest issues was Dolan refusing to give him autonomacy. Dolan wants to keep some of the power himself so he can keep Isiah involved through back channels.

Looking like he won't be hired, but whoever takes over is in for a power struggle.

BTW: Dolan's contract offer to Walsh was a 60% paycut and a loss of total control. Pretty sweet.

I checked the calendar to see if it is April 1st.

It's not.

It's December 25th.

Merry Christmas, fans of basketball comedy everywhere!

Didn't the NBA take the Hornets away from its owner for far less than giving a franchise to Isiah Thomas? No? Seems like a good enough reason for me.

Not really. Dolan still has money to spend, Shinn didn't. That's kinda bad for an NBA franchise, albeit only slightly worse than having Isiah around.
