I'm as big a Dolan hater as there is. The drama with Isaiah Thomas was unforgivable in my book. Permanent d-bag status on Dolan for that.
Having said that, this offseason - against all sane predictions - they seem to have done everything right. Letting Lin go and resigning Felton looked crazy but it's worked out 100%. Kidd seemed like a huge risk but that's turned out better than anyone could have reasonably expected. Keeping JR Smith? Check. Bringing in 'Sheed? Brilliant.
Getting rid of D'Antoni and giving Woodson a chance at the end of last season? Einstein.
Hate the man, but all this didn't happen without Dolan's input so I'll give him props. If he can just keep Isaiah away from this team they have a real shot to content this year and next.
Don't forget, we get Shumpert back in time for the playoff push which will only boost the defensive strength of this team.
My only question is Amare. Rumors inevitably starting about Gasol for Amare. Not sure what I think of that yet. But it might be a piece of a larger deal that gets us draft picks or another good young guard.
