Donnie Walsh is steeping down as president and general manager of the New York Knicks, reports Chris Sheridan, of

Donnie Walsh (right) with Mike D'Antoni, at a 2008 press conference, to announce D'Antoni as the new head coach of the New York Knicks.

There are two questions that immediately jump to my mind now, regarding the Knicks.

First; Is it possible the Knicks will bring back Isiah Thomas to replace Walsh.

Second; How safe is head coach Mike D'antoni with Walsh no longer the GM?
