"I'm more worried about the trading deadline, I'm more worried about the team, I'm more worried about a lot of things," he said. "So I really haven't thought about it. It's been generated from below, from the press. I mean, I'm looking for a grassy knoll with some of the stuff I'm reading now."As we said this morning Walsh doesn't want the attention, which you'd expect from an old school basketball guy. Either way he's going to move forward and hopes he can do it here and continue to chase a championship.
Walsh went on to add, "I don't believe any of it" regarding the reports that Knicks owner James Dolan is not certain he wants to bring Walsh back and, of course, the fears that Isiah Thomas still has Dolan's ear and may try to push Walsh out and reclaim his position running the franchise.
"The one thing I do know about Jim Dolan is he's honest," Walsh said. "So I don't believe any of this stuff. I think he'll deal with me honestly . . . So I don't have any problem with anything, period."
Walsh did say that he and Dolan have not talked recently so he doesn't know how the owner feels about the direction of the team at this point in the season. The playoffs appear to be a strong possibility for the Knicks, but with 34 games to go, nothing is certain just yet...more.
He's just waiting to hear from the owner.
