"I didn’t like it when we did it." - Donnie Walsh on the McGrady trade

It seems Donnie Walsh should start reading Posting and Toasting more before he completes trades...

Alot of P&T members, myself included, thought Donnie got a terrible deal by giving away so much in the trade with Houston this past season. Jordan Hill (a first round pick) right for Houston to swap 2011 first round picks, AND a 2012 first round pick?! Really Donnie? Giving up all of those future assets JUST to get rid of a 1 year of Jared Jeffries?!

There were some Posting and Toasting members that defended Donnie vigorously "How dare you question Donnie Walsh! He is God!" (compared to Isiah Thomas who wouldn't be?) but it appears now Donnie Walsh himself thinks he screwed up the Houston trade and has cost us a shot at superstar Carmelo Anthony by throwing away future picks on a rebuilding team just to save 6 million.

I'm overall happy with the changes Donnie has made for the team. He is a huge upgrade over Isiah Thomas and the team now has great potential but I figure it should be noted how Donnie HIMSELF thinks he screwed up the McGrady trade and might end up costing the Knicks a dynasty by losing out on Carmelo by throwing away picks Isiah Thomas style. Since Isiah would never get a free pass I figure Donnie should be held to the same standard of consistency.
