Walsh also refused to lay blame on his head coach Mike D'Antoni, admitting that he's put his coach in a tough place with so much roster change.I completely agree that this is a move for the long term, as most did, considering the fact that the Knicks were a venerable lock for the playoffs. They need wins and there was no guarantee that the old group wouldn't be backing into the playoffs either.
"I think it's very little [D'Antoni]," Walsh said. "It's very difficult to put these pieces back together in a short time. That's why it's more my responsibility. That's why I rarely trade in the middle of the season, because it's a big adjustment. But I made it because it's better for the franchise long term."
The question becomes will Walsh be here long term?
