Vote: Will Donnie Walsh turn the Knicks around?

Donnie Walsh is the newest president of the New York Knicks.
The plight of the New York Knicks has been a major story line ever since Isiah Thomas took over the reins of the historic franchise as team president in 2003 and head coach in June of 2006. Formerly perennial playoff contenders, the Knicks under Thomas have been plagued by losing seasons, fan apathy and an embarrassing off-court scandal. The current Knicks squad is in danger of having the first 60-loss season in franchise history.

After standing pat for years, the team has hired noted NBA executive Donnie Walsh for the position of team president. Formerly with the Pacers, Walsh led that team to four Central Division titles and 16 years of playoff appearances. He's considered one of the league's best executives, but can he turn around a team as mired in dysfunction as the Knicks?
