I haven't seen anyone discuss this yet, but it seems like Donnie Walsh had a HUGE (Isiah Thomas style huge) mistake last year.
Your telling me he went ahead and passed a straight up trade of Nate Robinson / Jared Jeffries for Kenny Thomas expiring contract last year because he was afraid to deal Nate.... and then turns around and flushes away 3 draft picks to get rid of Jeffries and trades Nate anyways?
Even if he had to include a draft pick last year to get the Kenny Thomas deal done we would still be better than we are now. He could have gotten a deal done somehow that was better than what we ended up with this year.
I like the idea of NY having cap space but it seems like Donnie Walsh screwed the Knicks by not having the courage to deal Nate...
