Donnie Walsh and Knicks owner Charles Dolan in happier times. Walsh re-stocked the Knicks with stars and lead the team to its first playoff appearance in seven seasons.
Dolan: See the Ball in MY HANDS? NOT DIRTY OLD BASTURD! He’s dead right? Right? Right!

“Following a long series of discussions regarding his future role with the New York Knicks, Donnie Walsh and I have mutually agreed that he will be leaving his position … at the end of June,” Dolan said in a statement.” 

I got in touch with one of the best Corporate Attorneys in New york to decipher this. SHE STATED:

1. Mutually Agreed to leave a Position = TERMINATION. Her further explanation is right below!

Some terminations occur as a result of mutual agreement between the employer and employee. When this happens, it is sometimes debatable if the termination was truly mutual. In many of these cases, it was originally the employer’s wish for the employee to depart, but the employer offered the mutual termination agreement in order to soften the firing (as in a forced resignation). But there are also times when a termination date is agreed upon before the employment starts (as in an employment contract).

Some types of termination by mutual agreement include:

  • The end of an employment contract for a specified period of time (such as an internship)
  • Mandatory retirement. Some occupations, such as commercial airline pilots,  face mandatory retirement at a certain age.
  • Forced resignation


Changes of conditions

Firms that wish for an employee to exit of his or her own accord, but do not wish to pursue firing or forced resignation, may degrade the employee’s working conditions, hoping that he or she will leave “voluntarily”. The employee may be moved to a different geographical location, assigned to an undesirable shift, given too few hours if part time, demoted (or relegated to a menial task), or assigned to work in uncomfortable conditions. Other forms of manipulation may be used, such as being unfairly hostile to the employee, and punishing him or her for things that are deliberately overlooked with other employees.

Often, these tactics are done so that the employer won’t have to fill out termination papers in jurisdictions without at-will employment. In addition, with a few exceptions, employees who voluntarily leave generally cannot collect unemployment.

FACT: WALSH WAS OFFERED A CUT IN PAY! ………….FACT: “DOLAN is so rich… China owes him money!”


One day Dolan was bored, so he asked his butler to get him Zeke, Walsh and _antoni.

A few hours later the butler comes back. Dolan says “OK I’ve a deal you can’t refuse. Who can swim successfully across this pool filed with sharks, eels, and leaches. The winner may have whatever his heat desires.”

No one replies so Dolan gives up.

All of a sudden Jimmy boy hears a splash. One of the men is swimming as fast as he can, dodging all the sharks, eels, and leaches.

Dolan was so impressed that someone had enough guts take up his challenge. He congratulates the man and asks him what he wants.
