New York Knicks: 5 Musts to Ensure Success in Post-Donnie Walsh Era

Amar'e Stoudemire's Goal is to Bring a Title to New York City

When news initially broke that Donnie Walsh would not return to his post as the president of the New York Knicks, most Knicks fans were shocked. Immediately, we began to hear the doom and gloom scenarios regarding the Knicks inevitable regression into mediocrity.

Certainly, the news of his departure stung, as everyone in the basketball world fully realizes and acknowledges that Donnie Walsh led the Knicks back to respectability after a decade of futility and mismanagement. 

At that time, I wrote a piece explaining that Knicks fans should take a "wait and see" approach before pressing the panic button.

I fully realize, however, that the New York Knicks front office, as currently constituted, lacks the track record of success that should give Knicks fans "optimism by default."

Instead, fans should hope that Interim General Manager Glen Grunwald and his inherited Assistant General Manager, Allan Houston can lead the way and convince the rest of the power brokers at 2 Penn Plaza to follow these five ideals.

Doing so could make all the difference in the world and ultimately determine whether Amar'e Stoudemire and Carmelo Anthony are eventually able to bring New York City its first NBA championship in 40 years.
