Mike drops ball in Donnie Walsh interview

With Doggie off today, taking his dreaded children to an amusement park, I was forced to listen to Mike Friday. He featured interviews with N.Y. Knicks President/GM Donnie Walsh and N.J. Nets President Rod Thorn. He basically asked both the same exact questions and they gave basically the same exact answers.

So imagine my surprise when ESPN.com reported this at least two hours after Mike's interview with Mr. Walsh:

Walsh: Knicks will contact Wolves about Rubio
June 26, 2009, 4:21 PM ET
GREENBURGH, N.Y. -- The New York Knicks are curious whether Ricky Rubio will wind up in Minnesota or Spain next season, curious enough that team president Donnie Walsh was planning to contact Minnesota by the end of the day Friday. "There is such a thing as drafting assets. I don't know if that is what he's doing," Walsh said of new Timberwolves general manager David Kahn.

Not once did Mike ask either Mssrs. Walsh or Thorn about any interest in post-draft trades.

KBilly...You spend too much time on Sirius. Mike doesn't know. Mike doesn't care. The NBA, as he waves his hand, is dead in New Yauwk.

In reality, as a NY fan, there is nothing better than a good Knick team. No Mets/Yanks or Giants/Jets nonsense. Unified support which is cool.

Actually, very excited for Darko...Gonna get my boys Darko jerseys. Rawr!

Mike should have asked that while he had Donnie on the air. Maybe that's why I listen to Sirius. Because Mike would rather be buddies with his interview subjects than ask them actual questioins.

If that fat tub of clueless lard never even MENTIONED the trade rumors, he should be fired as soon as he steps out of the booth.
