Meddlesome Knicks owner fouls out again

It may not be completely accurate to say that Donnie Walsh was forced out as Knicks GM, but Walsh refused to be James Dolan's puppet and went out on his own terms. The sad thought is that if Walsh was left to his own ingenuity this past season, the team wouldn't have flinched first when Denver asked for the candy store for Carmelo Anthony - and the Knicks would have gotten Anthony anyway.
Instead of leaving the negotiations to his professional, Dolan interceded and clucked first in a game of chicken with the Nuggets. The deal Dolan made had thumb print of Isiah Thomas writting all over it, a la the Stephon Marbury, Eddy Curry and Steve Francis fiascos.
