Knicks Prez Walsh Not Stepping Down, Retiring
Knicks president Donnie Walsh says he is not retiring, denying a report he may step down because of health problems and the disappointment of losing out on LeBron James. Walsh also denies speculation in the New York Post that his recent neck surgery had anything to do with his operation two years ago to remove part of his tongue because of cancer.
