Larry Bird wishes Walsh good luck in NY

The Knicks today named Donnie Walsh president of basketball operations. Walsh just spent 25 years with the Indiana Pacers. Here’s a statement from Pacers President of Basketball Operations Larry Bird:

“The Indiana Pacers offer Donnie Walsh congratulations and wish him good luck in his new position.  The Knicks have a good man whose dedication to his job is unmatched.  I have learned a great deal from Donnie and he’s not only a role model but a great friend.  Given time, there’s no doubt in my mind Donnie will bring success to the Knicks much like he did with the Pacers.  On behalf of the entire Pacers organization, we wish him the best of luck.”
