D’oh! Walsh Blames Scouts for passing up on Jennings

December 10, 2009

We passed on this guy for Jordan Hill??

Brandon Jennings, if you have lived under a rock for the past 3 months has torn up the NBA, and is an early candidate for the rookie of the year award. The Knicks passed up on him and picked up Jordan Hill with their lottery pick this past June and has seen spotted minutes in Mike D’antoni’s rotation this season, barring a miracle on 34th street Hill will probably not sniff the top five in rookie of the year voting.

the below excerpt is from the New York Daily News,

The decision to pass on Jennings in June’s draft has backfired for the Knicks, and Walsh has not been shy about assigning blame to members of his scouting department, many of whom are holdovers from the Isiah Thomas administration.

“I couldn’t get a feel for his game,” Walsh said of Jennings last month. “One scout said he thought Brandon Jennings was very good. I said, ‘If he’s that good you should come in my door every five minutes and tell me.’”

What a joke Donnie Walsh, are you telling me that your going to blame Isaiah Thomas for not picking this guy up?? FYI, Thomas was gone in 2008 and while he was here picked up Wilson Chandler, Nate Robinson, David Lee and the Suns Channing Frye. For all the years Walsh has been in the league its pretty embarrassing to hear him lay blame on the former regime. Good thing we can’t mess up our draft pick this year since it belongs to the damn Jazz.
